Growth through acquisition

Indutrade has a long record of experience in company acquisitions. During the last decade more than 100 companies have been acquired. These acquisitions have accounted for a large share of Indutrade's sales growth. Future growth is also expected to be achieved in part through company acquisitions.

Indutrade is a long-term owner, and the companies, once acquired, are not subject to further sale. The acquisition strategy is based on a two-pronged approach:

  1. Acquiring niche technology companies in countries with a strong trading tradition. Examples of such countries are Benelux, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Switzerland, the UK and Austria;
  2. Acquiring international niche companies with proprietary products.

The goal is to acquire a number of companies each year with net sales exceeding SEK 30 million each. Through a network of customers, suppliers and other market actors, Indutrade has a good picture of potential acquisition candidates in the market. Due to the fragmented market structure, access to acquisition candidates is good. By virtue of its strong acquisition history, its size and its good reputation, Indutrade has the experience and conditions needed to carry out value-creating acquisitions.
