Bergman & Beving acquires patent portfolio
Bergman & Beving, through its subsidiary ESSVE Produkter AB, has today acquired all shares in Atricon AB which has an interesting patent portfolio within lightweight wall mounting. The turnover, mainly consisting of license revenues, amounts to approximately MSEK 2 on an annual basis.
The patented products provide, among other things, the opportunity to nail most types of drywalls, which provide great time savings and better ergonomics. The products also provide significant environmental benefits.
“With these products, we strengthen our position in the fastening market, and broaden our offer in lightweight wall mounting. The products also complement our ambitions to grow internationally”, says Morten Bredesen, Head of ESSVE.
Closing is taking effect immediately and the acquisition is expected to have a marginal positive effect on Bergman & Beving's earnings per share during the current fiscal year.
