As of 1 October 2020, Benders Sverige AB is to take over the paving stone, water and sewage-related businesses of Starka Betongindustrier KB. The takeover includes the two production units in Södra Sandby and Strängnäs. Both are to continue within Benders. Employees at these operations are also to be offered employment with Benders.
The deal means that Benders is extending its already wide paving stone offerings while also adding an entirely new range, namely, concrete products for water and sewage applications. Henceforth, Starka is focusing its business on the company’s successful concrete element and retaining wall operations.
“Because they complement our present products and ranges so well, we are incredibly happy to acquire these operations. The water and sewage range now completes us as concrete product suppliers. Furthermore, the production capacity we have been able to buy will prove very useful in today’s market.”Ove Bender, MD Benders Sverige AB
“With Benders buying our Södra Sandby and Strängnäs facilities, we feel reassured they will continue to develop well and that our staff are joining a family-owned company that has values similar to ours.
“Starka is now going to focus on concrete elements and retaining walls. In the autumn, to double production capacity, we’re starting major investment in the Arboga factory. After that, we’ll be further investing in our Kristianstad and Ängelholm facilities.”
