Volati continues growth with acquisition of JPT-Industria

Report this content

Volati has acquired all shares in JPT-Industria OY, a leading supplier of equipment to the Finnish agricultural and food industry. The acquisition is an add-on acquisition for the Industry business area and the Tornum business unit. The acquisition expands Tornum’s offering within grain handling and gives the company a stronger market position in the Nordic region. JPT-Industria reported sales of EUR 7.5 million during the last financial year.

JPT-Industria is an entrepreneurial company with about 35 employees and is headquartered in Ilmajoki in Finland. The company is a market-leading player in its niche in Finland, with a broad product portfolio in interesting product segments such as feed handling, fertiliser production, grain handling and eco-efficient energy solutions.

“We are delighted at the opportunity to acquire JPT-Industria, a company we have followed for a long time. Not only does the acquisition expand Tornum’s existing offering in grain handling and strengthen its market position in the Nordic region, but it also broadens the offering to include related applications and equipment. The acquisition therefore fits well into Tornum’s growth strategy, where a broader equipment programme strengthens the position as a systems and turnkey supplier,” says Nicklas Margård, Head of Business Area Industry.

Add-on acquisitions to existing business units are an important part of Volati’s strategy for creating long-term value growth. They reinforce the business units’ market position, and add further value through synergies.

“JPT-Industria has developed modularised concepts for its products, which are beneficial for international exports. So far, the company has focused primarily on the Finnish market, and with the help of Tornum’s international sales organisation, there are good growth opportunities through internationalisation,” says Nicklas Margård.

The acquisition has been financed through Volati’s existing credit facilities and the company will be consolidated from 1 February 2021. The acquisition is not expected to have any significant impact on Volati’s earnings for 2021.
