This strategic partnership is based on a shared vision of strengthening and enhancing the customer experience for Sweden's haulage and bus operators.

Through this acquisition, we are strengthening our position as the largest independent player in the aftermarket for commercial vehicles in Sweden. It also enables us to extract synergies to further enhance our ability to deliver quality services and the best customer experience. We have a clear plan for our expansion, and the acquisition of Experten Group is a crucial step towards the goal of reaching SEK 1 billion in revenue by 2026. I am very excited about us now creating a strong position in the bus segment and adding body shop services through the modern state-of-the-art facility that Experten Group recently has developed in Enköping." says Staffan Lindewald, CEO of Malte Månson Group.

“I am incredibly proud of the journey Experten Group has undergone since its founding. To now join forces with Malte Månson and join them on a rapid growth journey is a strategic and exciting next phase for us.
