On January 25, Dacke Industri AB signed an agreement to acquire all shares in Transtronic AB.

The acquisition of Transtronic is completely in line with Dacke Industri's ambition to grow with companies that focus on their own products as well as customized components and systems. Transtronic is specialized in systems and sensors for heavy environments and has a very good quality reputation in the market. Through a clear focus on mechanical and electrical aiming indicators, primarily within the rock drilling industry, Transtronic has since 1972 produced, sold, installed, repaired, and serviced customers in its niche, where the company today has a very strong position.

Transtronic will be an important part of Dacke Industri's continued effort to build a cluster of companies within Electronics with the goal of helping customers to streamline their operations and strengthen the quality by providing products that enable monitoring and improvements in a number of application areas.

“Transtronic has been successful, among other things, thanks to core values that we at Dacke Industri value. Quality, partnership, and long-term profitability. We are very pleased to welcome Transtronic to our group” says Lars Fredin, President and CEO of Dacke Industri AB.

Magnus Thele, CEO and previous owner of Transtronic AB: “I am convinced that Dacke Industri AB is a very good future owner of Transtronic. We look forward to continuing to develop the company in the long term together with Dacke, both technically and market-wise in new niches and in new markets.”
