Ola Tengroth, President of Lesjöfors:
Acquisition of Alcomex creates sales synergies
Development of the company’s own sales platform as well as initiatives to leverage the synergies created by the acquisition of Alcomex. These are two areas that President Ola Tengroth highlights in his status report on Lesjöfors.
What is your short-term focus?
We are continuing the process of improving cooperation at Lesjöfors so that we can sell our entire range in all of our markets, So the development of our sales platform is important. Sustainability and digitization are other focus areas where we will be investing more. In addition, we are going to significantly accelerate the pace of acquisitions in 2022.
What opportunities have been created by the Alcomex acquisition?
Above all, a new niche of door springs has opened up to us, allowing us to expand our offering to include a new product segment. There are also sales synergies for Alcomex, which has begun selling Lesjöfors’s standard range of industrial springs in its markets. The companies are also a good match in terms of geography: Alcomex is strong in markets where we have not had a presence in the past. Moreover, we see that there are synergies on the purchasing side, for example when it comes to raw materials.
