Armatec Group acquires two Danish companies

Armatec Group, part of Ernströmgruppen, today signed an agreement to acquire all of the shares in Dansk Ventil Center AS (DVC AS) and Valtor Offshore AS from ERIKS. DVC and Valtor will remain separate entities and the management teams of each business remain unchanged.

DVC AS and Valtor Offshore AS, have combined annual sales of approximately 180 MSEK and are leading suppliers in Denmark within their respective niches; valves for Danish flow industry and valves & services for the offshore market. In connection with the takeover, the companies become distributors of ERIKS' range of valves and supplementary products.

”Armatec Group is strong in Denmark in the energy and industry sectors. The acquisition of these two solid companies with strong brands and high technical application capabilities, reinforce our position in the process industry and offshore, as well as further expand our offer in the market. This is another step in our continued expansion and our commitment to be a comprehensive Nordic company that meets our customers' needs for systems, functional solutions and flow technology”, says Eva Karlsson, CEO of Armatec Group.

“For ERIKS, the reason to divest these activities is purely strategically motivated, as we believe a more locally oriented player like Armatec can create more value to the customers than ERIKS can in the Danish marketplace”, says Simon Franken, CEO of ERIKS.
