Staffan Johansson, President of Beijer Tech:
Acquisitions of profitable companies with growth potential
Beijer Tech is growing profitably while also actively investing in more acquisitions. President Staffan Johansson explains that these acquisitions also include companies in new industries.
What is your short-term focus?
To keep doing what we’ve been doing, but even better. We grew by about 39 percent in 2021, and will continue to develop our existing business and make more acquisitions. It’s going to be very important to be close to our customers now that society is opening up again, in other words to safeguard our business by visiting our customers and being very focused on their needs.
You’re making acquisitions, and in new areas – tell us more.
We are looking for profitable companies that are not dependent on a single customer or supplier, with good management and attractive growth potential of course. It’s not any more complicated than that. In order to grow Beijer Tech, we also make acquisitions in new industries with attractive niche technologies, such as building automation and water treatment. At the same time, we are happy to make complementary acquisitions that fit in well with our existing businesses, primarily in the Fluid Technology business area.
