CapMan has sold Lunawood to Accent Equity

CapMan Oyj has sold Lunawood to funds managed by Accent Equity Partners Ab.

Lunawood is one of the pioneers in thermally modified timber (TMT) and has developed into the leading global player in softwood thermowood. TMT is a much more sustainable alternative to traditional wood products, such as impregnated wood and tropical hardwood, and an excellent choice for decorative surfaces. Lunawood’s products, sold in 50 countries, are primarily used for cladding and facades.

Accent Equity Partners is a buyout investment pioneer in the Nordic region. Accent Equity funds have invested in 87 companies, of which 69 have been realized. The firm’s ambition is to develop its portfolio companies to be the Nordics, European and global leaders through the sustainable improvement of their operations as well as by strategic positioning. Accent Equity Partners is the investment advisor to all Accent Equity funds.

As one of the Nordic's private equity pioneers, CapMan has developed hundreds of companies and real estate assets creating substantial value over the past 30 years.
