Kährs Group, a Swedish Europe-leading manufacturer of wood flooring and PVC-free resilient flooring, has acquired flooring distributor Ehrenborg & Co, which is a leader in the Swedish flooring market for public areas. Ehrenborg also operates in the rest of the Nordic countries as well as in several export markets.
Through the acquisition of Ehrenborg, Kährs Group strengthens its sales and distribution to customers in commercial projects and broadens its product portfolio with new products in project sales.
The companies have been cooperating for a long time as Ehrenborg is responsible for the sales of Upofloor, Kährs Group's brand for resilient flooring, in the Scandinavian market.
"We are very pleased that Ehrenborg now becomes part of Kährs Group. By integrating distribution, we add valuable expertise and experience as well as new interesting product groups, all in line with our aim to develop project sales", says Christer Persson, President and CEO of Kährs Group.
"We look forward to continuing to develop and strengthen Ehrenborg's operations together with Kährs Group. We share the same values regarding quality, environmental awareness, trends and customer relations, which have always been important drivers for Ehrenborg", says Jörgen Warsell, Managing Director of Ehrenborg.
The takeover has been carried out with immediate effect.
