With Powermec group, we also get a great platform to further expand our business activities in this field outside the Nordic region”, says Niklas Stenberg, Business Area Manager for Power Solutions.

We have created a structured and prosperous Company group and been able to take a considerable market share in a mature market. Together with Addtech, we will now continue our expansion plan”, says Mikael Häggblom and Thomas Holmer, founders of Powermec AB.

The closing will take place today and the acquisition is estimated to have a marginally positive effect on Addtech’s earnings per share during the current financial year.
