Strategic positioning in the Nordic building materials sector
FagFlis Group, Norway’s leading B2B specialist in ceramic tiles and related products, consists of 13 fully owned and 12 franchise stores in Norway, and three owned stores in Sweden.
Through the acquisition of FagFlis Group, Norway’s leading B2B specialist in ceramic tiles and related products, STARK Group A/S, secures a crucial building block in their Nordic growth strategy.
We chose Oaklins because of its solid understanding of our business, the building materials industry and the relevant universe of buyers. Through close collaboration and determination, the Oaklins team conveyed the strategic strengths and potential of our business, anticipated and handled the challenges throughout the process and negotiated rewarding terms on our behalf. I must admit that the sale process was more challenging than expected, but, with the support of Oaklins, it was structured and timely, and the result was better than we had hoped for. I can genuinely recommend Oaklins to anyone who considers selling their business.HENRIK STENSRUD, CEO AND FOUNDER, FAGFLIS GROUP, NORWAY
