About us

Metrocore was founded and incorporated in 2007 as CRAFTconsult LLC. During its early stages, the company was exclusively providing consulting services in the arena of airline and business aviation operations.

In 2015 the name changed to Metrocore and the company was upgraded from a Limited Liability Company (GmbH) to a private shareholding company (Aktiengesellschaft), with an increase in share capital to better facilitate its ongoing investment activities.

Today we focus on following core areas:

  • Aerospace-, aviation- and defence-related M&A activities in the lower mid-market segment
  • Capital markets; SME Initial Public Offerings and Corporate Finance Solutions
  • Advisory – Corporate Strategy, Operations & Finance for the private sector and governments
