Indutrade acquires Norwegian instrument company

On 1 July Indutrade signed an agreement to acquire all of the shares in Finisterra AS ( with annual sales of approximately 50 MNOK.

The closing takes place today and Finisterra will be a subsidiary to Indutrade’s company Elma Instruments, which is part of the Industrial Components Business Area. Elma Instruments is one of the market leaders in Scandinavia within the field of handheld instruments for test- and measurement. The acquisition of Finisterra will strengthen Elma Instrument’s product offering and market position.

The acquisition is expected to have a marginally positive effect on Indutrade’s earnings per share.
