Storskogen Group AB has entered into an agreement to acquire a majority stake in Fremco A/S.

It is a highly specialized niche company with international sales through more than 30 resellers worldwide. Current management shareholders and two employees are reinvesting into the new ownership structure where Fremco will be part of Storskogen’s business vertical products, within the industry business area.

Headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, and founded in 2012, Storskogen Group acquires and develops profitable companies in the Nordic countries, the DACH region and the UK, within the trade and services business areas. The group consists of around 90 business units with approximately 7,000 employees and a combined turnover of nearly US$2 billion over the last twelve months.
