By the acquisition, Swegon strengthens its position as one of the leaders within ventilation products in the Nordics.  ABC Ventilationsprodukter will complement Swegon’s existing portfolio by broadening the product range to include products such as roof hoods, louvres, and fire and smoke products. In addition, the company has a clear focus on climate- and energy efficient products.

“We have a long history of collaboration with ABC Ventilationsprodukter and are now pleased to welcome them to the Swegon family. With their complementary product portfolio as well as their expertise, ABC Ventilationsprodukter will be a great addition to our complete indoor climate system that will strengthen our position on the market even further”, says Andreas Örje Wellstam, CEO at Swegon Group.

“We are excited to see how our long partnership, where we share the long-term business perspective and have similar company values, now enters a new phase where we after several years of investment in our production and development are ready to take the next step in accelerating our business growth”, says Ingemar Carlsson, founder of ABC Ventilationsprodukter.

As an effect of the acquisition the net debt of the Latour Group increases with about SEK 0.1 billion.
