Indutrade acquires Swedish drug test provider Prodiagnostics
Indutrade has signed an agreement to acquire all shares in the Swedish medical technology company Pro Diagnostics Scandinavia AB, www.prodiagnostics.se, with annual sales of approximately SEK 50 million.
Prodiagnostics is a Swedish provider of a wide range of instant drug tests and laboratory drug tests. Since 2012, the company has provided the Swedish market with tests that are market leading in terms of sensitivity and traceability.
Prodiagnostics has two business areas: Professional use and Workplace testing. The customer groups within Professional use include providers of healthcare, such as regional councils, municipalities and private healthcare actors, as well as law enforcement and customs. Within Workplace testing, the customers are private companies using tests on their employees. Prodiagnostics is based in Vellinge, Sweden and has 11 employees.
The acquisition strengthens Indutrades cluster of medical technology companies and Prodiagnostics, with a unique product portfolio and good expansion opportunities, has a strong foundation for further growth.
The closing takes place today and Prodiagnostics will be included in Indutrade's Business Area Industrial Components. The acquisition is Indutrade's sixth in 2022 and is expected to have a marginally positive impact on Indutrade's earnings per share.
