Systemair acquires in Brasil
Systemair AB (NASDAQ OMX Stockholm: SYSR) has signed an agreement to acquire 75% of the shares in the Brazilian company Traydus, a leading Brazilian manufacturer of custom air handling units and fan coils with 75 employees. The company is located close to Sao Paulo.
"In spite of the current political and financial challenges we see this as a very interesting opportunity to strategically establish Systemair in Brazil. Focusing on energy efficiency, Traydus is positioned in the upper technological segment of the Brazilian ventilation market and is a perfect fit for Systemair. This opens possibilities to introduce a wider range of Systemair products from other factories. With Systemair-Traydus and our existing operations in Chile and Peru, we will be able to successfully compete for projects in South America.", says Roland Kasper, CEO for Systemair.
"We will initially acquire 75%, with immediate effect, and have a binding option to acquire the remaining 25% within a period of six years.", says Roland Kasper, President and CEO for Systemair.", concludes Roland Kasper.
