"The acquisition is an excellent complement to our subsidiaries Logopak Systems and Novexx
Solutions, which are active within the same industry", remarks Dietrich Barsch, CEO of the Business Unit Identification Solutions, which Nordvalls will be part of. The three companies will form an integrated group offering machinery, software and labels relating to product identification.

"We are committed to creating long-term profitable development of our subsidiaries and we have the financial strength to provide the necessary resources. We are here to ensure that Nordvalls will have the required structure in place to take the company to the next level", continues Dietrich Barsch.

Nordvalls' CEO Patrik Jenemark also expresses a very positive view of the new owners.
"We are on the right path. The efficiency improvements executed during 2016 has implied that our operating profit improved substantially", comments Patrik Jenemark and continues "as a consequence of the resources provided by our new owners, we can speed up the process of investing for the future. During the first phase, we will invest in new machinery to our production facility in Kungälv."

Nordvalls with its 110 year history is through this transaction now leaving the family-owned era, and the former shareholders are pleased to hand over the company to a new financially strong owner that will continue to develop the business.
