Indutrade has signed an agreement to acquire all shares in the Danish company C.H. Rustfri Danmark ApS and the Norwegian company C.H. Rustfri Norge AS, with annual aggregated sales of approximately DKK 40 million (SEK 60 million).

C.H. Rustfri specialises in process and assembly installations of pipes, process equipment, and vessels, mainly to the Nordic food and beverage industry. The company assists customers, from the design and engineering phase of planning for an optimised production plant, to on-site installation and assembly. This includes the sale of material and equipment used in the manufacturing process.

C.H. Rustfri was founded in 2007 and has 36 employees. As an add-on to CKJ Steel, the companies' combined offerings will provide growth opportunities and diversify the end-markets and geographical presence of the combined entity. CKJ Steel, acquired by Indutrade in 2021, is a leading engineering and manufacturing company, offering process equipment as well as engineering services, to the Danish pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.

The closing takes place today and C.H. Rustfri will be included in Indutrade's Business Area Life Science. The acquisition is Indutrade's ninth in 2024 and is expected to have a marginally positive impact on Indutrade's earnings per share.
