Cardo acquires garage-door distributor in France Cardo has acquired all shares in the French company SEA B2L SAS, which has a turnover of approximately SEK 70 million and employs roughly 30 people. The acquisition strengthens the position of the Door business area in the French market for residential garage doors while supplementing its product range. SEA B2L, which was founded in 1992, distributes residential garage doors and automatic gate control devices to specialized retailers in France and has, among other things, been one of Door's distributors in the French market. The acquisition supplements Door's sales of residential garage doors in France; and, in addition, automatic gate control devices will be a natural complement to Door's range of products for the consumer sector. The acquisition is expected to have a marginally beneficial effect on Cardo group earnings in 2003.
