C M Betong will complement the Group’s operations through its offering of innovative, high-quality products for industrial flooring solutions, as well as its expert knowledge of concrete and mechanical engineering. The combination of the businesses will create an even stronger group, able to provide its customers with top-quality services and products. The founder of C M Betong will reinvest in the Linotol Group alongside Accent Equity and the founders of Linotol, C Holmqvist and Tiller-Vimek.
“Together with Accent Equity and Linotol Group, we will be able to support the group’s continued growth journey, further strengthening its position as the leader within industrial flooring in the Nordic market. By joining Linotol Group, we become an integral part of the group’s offering, which will allow the group to be more competitive in projects where we can leverage combined technical competence and knowledge.” says Carl-Johan Dahlgren, founder of C M Betong.
