Novedo has an active Nordic acquisition strategy where the company aims to continue to grow by acquiring qualitative, profitable companies with a sound corporate culture, developed niche position and proven business model. Nordkabel meets all our acquisition criteria. I’m truly impressed by the strong market position that the management team has secured in the Danish market with Henrik Hassing and Bjørn Christiansen at the helm, not to mention the company’s stable turnover and profitability, says Per-Johan Dahlgren, President & CEO of Novedo.
We’re extremely happy to join the Novedo Group today. Being part of a highly decentralized group will give us the best of both worlds: We can continue running business independently while taking advantage of the Group’s collective experience, expertise and resources, which will help further accelerate our expansion and profitability, says Henrik Hassing, CEO of Nordkabel.
Nordkabel will be part of Novedo's Infrastructure segment and the company is expected to be consolidated into the Noveo Group during Q4 2022.
