SKIOLD A/S has acquired Rotecna S.A.U.

Combining SKIOLD and Rotecna delivers clear strategic benefits to both companies, including a stronger global footprint and an enhanced platform to grow in new markets, a broader product portfolio of leading technologies and increased scale to support investments in R&D, such as digital solutions. Rotecna joins SKIOLD’s existing pig business unit, nearly doubling its size in terms of revenue. With this acquisition, SKIOLD Group’s revenue is approaching €200 million (US$235 million).

SKIOLD, headquarted in Sæby, Denmark, has more than 140 years of experience in providing seed, feed and farming equipment and solutions. SKIOLD covers the complete value chain, from field to livestock, including seed processing, grain handling, feed milling, and poultry, cattle and pig farming equipment. SKIOLD is majority-owned by Solix Group.

Founded in 1991 and headquartered in Agramunt, Spain, Rotecna specializes in the design, manufacture and marketing of equipment and solutions for the pig farming industry. Enabled by its innovative DNA, Rotecna has played a central role in supporting the development of Spain’s pork production industry, which today has reached a leading status globally in terms of efficiency, while having the third largest pig population worldwide. Rotecna has grown consistently over the past 10 years from c. US$12 million in revenue in 2010 to nearly US$60 million in 2020, becoming the number one leading pig equipment provider in Spain, at the same time entering new markets in, for example, Europe and Latin America.

Oaklins’ teams in Denmark and Spain were engaged to advise SKIOLD and its majority shareholder Solix Group as the strategic and financial advisor in this transaction.
