Stockholm, 22 December 2023

  • Linotol Group acquires Tiller-Vimek, further strengthening its footprint in Norway
  • Tiller-Vimek is a leading flooring solutions provider in Norway, specialising in floors for industrial purposes and storage facilities
  • The founders of Tiller-Vimek reinvest alongside Accent Equity and founders of Linotol and C Holmqvist

Linotol Group has completed the acquisition of Tiller-Vimek in Norway. The addition of Tiller-Vimek forms an important step towards expanding the Group’s footprint in Norway, and strengthening the Group’s position as the leading provider of industrial flooring solutions in the Nordic region. Earlier this year, Accent Equity acquired a majority ownership in Linotol and C Holmqivst Entreprenad, creating a platform for growth within industrial flooring solutions. Linotol and C Holmqvist formed what is now Linotol Group.

Tiller-Vimek is a Norwegian flooring solutions provider, serving property owners, developers and construction companies with flooring solutions mainly for industrial and storage purposes. The company generated sales around NOK 200m in 2022, and has ca. 35 employees. Tiller-Vimek and Linotol Group generated combined sales in excess of SEK 1bn in 2022 (pro forma) and has c. 225 employees.

Tiller-Vimek will form the platform of operations in Norway for Linotol Group, and the combination of the businesses will create an even stronger group which will continue to provide its customers with top-quality services. The founders of Tiller-Vimek will reinvest in the Linotol Group and will remain in their current management positions.

“Together with Accent Equity and Linotol Group, we will be able to continue our growth journey towards becoming a leader within industrial flooring in the Norwegian market. By joining Linotol Group, we are getting access to a broader market, and will be more competitive in projects where we can leverage resources and knowledge from Linotol. We are very happy that we will be able to retain our team of dedicated employees and focus on growing our business together with Linotol Group.” says Ola Stormorken, managing director of Tiller-Vimek.

“We strongly believe in the combination of Linotol Group and Tiller-Vimek, and very much look forward to growing the businesses together. Tiller-Vimek has a great reputation for its high quality offering, and is ideally positioned to continue its profitable growth journey. We are very excited about continuing the journey together, further strengthening our position as the leading provider of industrial flooring solutions in the Nordics.” says Michael Larsson, CEO of Linotol Group.

The transaction closed on 30th November 2023.
