Indutrade has signed an agreement to acquire the assets in the Swiss company Beratherm AG, with annual sales of approximately CHF 4.5 million (SEK 55 million).

Beratherm offers a wide range of chemical-technical surface treatment solutions. The product offering includes proprietary and biodegradable cleaning detergents, as well as cleaning services of individual components and complete industrial plants. The main customer segments include general industry and the chemical, food and pharmaceutical industries.

As an add-on to Ateco Tobler, the companies' combined offerings will provide good growth opportunities as they complement and strengthen each other. Ateco Tobler, acquired by Indutrade in 2011, is specialised in cleaning services and surface treatment of stainless steel for the pharmaceutical industry as well as anodizing of aluminium.

The closing takes place today and Beratherm will be included in Indutrade's Business Area Process, Energy & Water. The acquisition is Indutrade's tenth in 2024 and is expected to have a marginally positive impact on Indutrade's earnings per share.
