Sdiptech acquires Ficon Oy

Sdiptech AB (publ) has today acquired all the shares in Ficon Oy, which specialises in hydraulic products for snow and ice clearing of roads and land in Finland. Ficon is an additional acquisition to Hilltip Oy.

Ficon was founded in 2005 and is a leading player on the Finnish market in the design, manufacture, construction and installation of snow and ice clearing equipment adapted for pickups, small trucks and tractors. In addition to increased traffic safety on smaller roads and resource efficiency where larger vehicles are not needed or can operate, Ficon facilitates for small-scale industrial companies.

"Ficon has a leading position in its niche and is a well-known brand among contractors for property- and road maintenance on the Finnish market. Through the additional acquisition, Hilltip can use Ficon's strong distributor and sales network to increase sales of its products in Finland," says Anders Mattson, Business Area Manager for SIS at Sdiptech.

Ficon fits in well with Sdiptech's strategic focus on operations and products that contribute to creating more sustainable, efficient and safe societies. Ficon have annual sales of approximately EUR 1.8 million, with good profitability and will be included in the Special Infrastructure Solutions business area from June 2021.
