Its customers are primarily technical wholesalers servicing the construction industry. The company also sells directly to large industrial companies, supported by its own e-commerce platform. In addition, Elma Instruments has several own-branded products and lines of own-developed products to complement an extensive range of supplier products.

Indutrade is an international industrial group that sells and develops high-tech components, systems and services. The company markets solutions that streamline customers’ systems and processes. With a decentralized structure, Indutrade operates through more than 200 subsidiaries with some 5,500 employees in 28 countries on four continents.

Oaklins’ team in Denmark acted as the exclusive financial advisor to the seller in this transaction.

In the process, a select field of potential buyers were invited to evaluate the investment opportunity. Within Indutrade‘s industrial components business area, the company has found a perfect match strengthening the opportunity to accelerate its growth organically and through further acquisitions.
