Bergman & Beving acquires Kiilax

Bergman & Beving has today acquired 75 per cent of the shares in Kiilax Oy. The company manufactures and sells primarily own building material products under the brand Kiilax, including its own patented inspection hatches and its plywood based products. The company sells primarily directly to customers within construction and industry, but also to builders merchants. Kiilax is based in Joensuu in Finland, has 24 employees and a turnover of approximately MEUR 9 with good profitability.

Kiilax has created a strong position in Finland by developing products and solutions for different niches, in close dialogue with its customers. The company will continue to focus on strengthening its position in selected segments in the Finnish market and at the same time accelerate the already initiated export business”, says Mats Gullbrandsson, Head of Division Building Materials.

We believe that we have found a good partner in Bergman & Beving, which we are convinced will support us in the growth phase we are currently in”, says previous majority owner Jouni Kontkanen, who, together with his three partners, will continue as minority owners and management team in the company.

Kiilax will be included in the division Building Materials and the closing takes place immediately. The acquisition is expected to have a marginal positive effect on Bergman & Beving´s earnings per share during the current fiscal year.
