Systemair acquires in Russia
Systemair has acquired the assets of ventilation equipment distributor LEX in Moscow. Lex has 26 employees and had a turnover of approximately 6 MEUR in 2009.
With this purchase, Systemair strengthens its already firm position on the Russian HVAC market.
Systemair will now be able to offer their Russian distributors even better service then previously by offering them fast deliveries from a local warehouse.
"- We will now increase the availability of some products, those that distributors normally only stock in limited numbers today, and this will have a positive impact on both the sales and market share", says Systemair's CEO Gerald Engström.
