BE Group acquires Hercules Rebar from NCC
BE Group has acquired the assets of Hercules Rebar facility in Norrköping from Hercules Grundläggning AB, a subsidiary within NCC. Hercules Rebar offers reinforcement in the shape of straight steel, reinforcement mesh and cut and bent reinforcement to projects all over Sweden and the turnover in 2021 amounted to approximately SEK 140 M.
“The acquisition of Hercules Rebar is strengthening BE Group’s offering within reinforcement in Sweden and means that we will be adding production and storage capacity close by our facility in Norrköping”, says Peter Andersson, President and CEO at BE Group.
The acquisition include machines, inventory, employees and rental agreement for the reinforcement facility and a multi-year cooperation agreement on reinforcement with NCC. The business is a smaller manufacturing unit which employs about 20 people, own employees and temporary workers.
“Hercules Rebar is a good business but differs from our core operations. Our assessment is that BE Group can develop the business better than we could do ourselves and also grow with more customers”, says Tomas Dädeby, Head of Division NCC Infrastructure.
The take-over takes place on May 1 at the latest and the business will be a part of BE Group Sverige AB. The acquisition is estimated to have a marginally positive impact on the underlying result for 2022.
