The investment fund Accent Equity 2017 has signed an agreement to acquire a majority stake in the industrial service partner company Enerco Group from its founders. In connection with Accent Equity’s entry, the new group will acquire the two companies MVUSAB and InduMate. With combined sales in 2020 of almost SEK 700 million, the new group aims at being a consolidator of the Swedish fragmented industrial services and components industry.
Enerco Group was established in 2015 and has since provided Swedish industrial customers with maintenance and technology services as an industrial service partner, enhancing customers’ cost-effectiveness, quality, and safety as well as development and innovation. As a result of the group’s focus on serving the steel, process equipment and automotive suppliers, the annual revenue growth since inception has been above 30%.
MVUSAB is a specialised producer of large high-quality metal components for heavy industrial applications, serving customers primarily active within power generation, steel, mining, paper and pulp.
InduMate has a specific focus on industrial pipe welding services and will expand the group’s service portfolio further.
"We are very pleased to welcome MVUSAB and InduMate to the group as it strengthens our position as a reliable and knowledgeable partner to the Swedish industrial market. We will now be able to provide our existing customers with a better service offering and are finally able to approach new customers that have challenging needs. With Accent Equity as partner, we can accelerate our current strategic growth plan by looking at add-on acquisitions and new establishments", says Niklas Pettersson, co-founder and CEO of the Enerco Group."It became clear to us during the Covid-pandemic that local suppliers and service partners are truly important, and we have a firm belief that Swedish industry will regain and even excel in coming years. We are very impressed by Enerco’s development in recent years, and it’s therefore we are convinced that Enerco is in the pole position for a rapid growth journey ahead", says Carl Fürstenbach, Partner and investment manager at Accent Equity.
Enerco’s founders Niklas Pettersson and Roger Hydén, as well as the founders of MVUSAB, will remain with a significant ownership and continue to develop the group in close co-operation with Accent Equity.
