Report this content

Life science research distributor Nordic BioSite Group brings in new majority owner Adelis Equity Partners in order to further accelerate its growth and geographic expansion with the goal of becoming an even stronger partner to its suppliers and customers

Nordic BioSite Group (NBG) is a leading European supplier of research and diagnostics products, with a particularly strong position within antibodies and other research reagents. Through the combination of Nordic Biosite AB in the Nordics, Sanbio BV in Benelux and Biomol GmbH in Germany, Tellacq Partners have together with the founders and management team built a solid presence in Northern Europe. Now Adelis is brought in as a partner, to help further accelerate growth and geographical expansion.

Over the last twenty years, NBG has built a solid presence in Northern Europe, connecting researchers with the world’s leading life science products for research use. The Group’s highly skilled employees, many of whom are PhDs within the field, advise thousands of researchers across Europe on which products to use to optimise their research. A growing pan-European presence helps international suppliers cut through the complexity of serving the fragmented and heterogenous European market.

“We see substantial opportunities for expansion and know that Adelis has extensive experience in growing European life science companies,” says CEO Wilco van Hamond. “We see strong potential for creating a pan-European life science research distributor, serving suppliers across Europe”, adds Magnus Lundberg, partner at Tellacq Partners.

“NBG is a leader in each of the regions in which it operates. Life science research will continue to see strong underlying growth in a post-pandemic world – with a wealth of exciting new products continuously being launched. Connecting suppliers to the fragmented European research and diagnostics market enables high quality research output. We are impressed by NBG’s management team and skilled employees and recognise that the company’s services are of great value to its suppliers and customers. We look forward to supporting NBG build a truly pan-European distribution platform”, say Rasmus Molander and Lene Stern from Adelis.

The parties have chosen not to disclose the purchase price.
