Accent Equity has acquired Triarca to accelerate expansion

8 July 2021

  • The investment fund Accent Equity 2017 has acquired Triarca from VIA equity and minority shareholders
  • Triarca is one of the leading Scandinavian providers of high-quality enclosures for critical infrastructure solutions, with a growing presence in Northern Europe
  • Accent Equity aims to support the company’s ambition for continued growth and international expansion, both organically and through add-on acquisitions

The investment fund Accent Equity 2017 has acquired the Danish enclosure supplier Triarca from the North European private equity firm VIA equity. Management individuals will reinvest and stay on as co-owners and continue to develop the company in close cooperation with Accent Equity.

With a history dating back to 1959 and over 1.5 million enclosures sold, Triarca is today one of the leading Scandinavian suppliers of enclosures for infrastructure solutions. The company has unique experience and a solid track-record of producing and distributing high-quality enclosures, used in power distribution, communication technology and e-commerce parcel lockers. Triarca’s strong market position is a result of its ability to develop and offer a variety of enclosures in aluminium, galvanized and stainless steel with colour and finish flexibility combined with user-friendly features for installation and maintenance. The customer base primarily consists of blue-chip utility companies and technology companies, and almost all Triarca’s enclosures are developed in close co-operation with the customers.

Lars Prisak, CEO of Triarca, is looking forward to the new ownership: “Triarca is prepared for growth and with our focus on digitization and electrification we see good possibilities within sustainable energy, for instance in e-mobility infrastructure. With Accent Equity as majority owner, we will be able to expand to new markets and we are excited about exploring opportunities in growing segments such as 5G, car charging stations and e-commerce.”

“We are impressed by Triarca’s high-quality products, long-term customer relationships and are enthusiastic about the company’s growth plans that include geographical expansion and development of the offering for e-commerce parcel lockers as well as new applications aimed to support the increasing need for electrification of societies. The management team is very knowledgeable and competent, and we are looking forward to work together to accelerate growth.” says Benny Zakrisson, Partner at Accent Equity.

Accura Advokatpartnerselskab (legal), PwC (financial), ADL Little (commercial), and Ramboll (ESG) assisted Accent Equity in connection with the transaction.
