Imtech strengthens position on Nordic sprinkler market by acquiring FCC Sprinkler & Service

(PresseBox) (Gouda, ) Imtech N.V. (technical services provider in Europe) has announced that it has acquired the Swedish technical services provider FCC Sprinkler & Service AB. This acquisition contributes directly to the revenue per share.

René van der Bruggen, CEO Imtech: 'FCC Sprinkler & Service fits in perfectly with our existing sprinkler activities in the Nordic region. This acquisition will increase our scale and geographical radius of activity. From a technological point of view, we will be able to provide more added value to a broader client base. This is an excellent basis for the further growth of Imtech in Sweden, Norway and Finland.'

FCC Sprinkler & Service profile

With its 60 employees, FCC Sprinkler & Service achieves an annual revenue of 8 million euro, and is one of the larger technical services providers in Sweden specialising in sprinkler technology. The company, which is located in Vasteras (approximately 150 kilometres from Stockholm), has been operating for more than ten years and has developed into a strong regional player in the sprinkler market.

Synergy

FCC Sprinkler & Service will become part of the business unit NVS Sprinklers. With 190 employees, this business unit is one of the strongest players in Sweden and Norway in a positively developing sprinkler market. Recently for instance, NVS (Imtech) won the contract for the hightech sprinkler technology in the Swedbank Arena, the new Swedish multifunctional national stadium for football, other (sporting) events (capacity: 50,000 visitors), and concerts (capacity: 67,000 visitors) in Solna, Stockholm. NVS Sprinklers and FCC Sprinkler & Service are largely complementary from both a geographical and client base point of view. Together they form a strong combination with greater possibilities for innovation and growth.

Further growth in the Nordic region

At the end of 2008 Imtech acquired NVS. With annual revenue of approximately 325 million euro, NVS is one of the largest technical service providers in Sweden, Norway and Finland. This new acquisition fits in with Imtech's strategy to strengthen its position further in the Nordic region. Last year Imtech already acquired three smaller and mediumsized companies in Sweden and Norway.
