Translink Corporate Finance announces the sale of Pontech-Group a major marina and pontoon supplier in Northern Europe, to the investment company Suiris Invest. Pontech supplies complete concrete projects including pontoons, piers, breakwaters, floating houses and gangways as well as fittings and power supply units to clients such as marinas, club societies, municipalities and building & construction companies. Pontech has operations in Sweden and Germany and experienced strong growth in home and export markets over the past three years.
“The process with Anecta Translink had been going on for some time and Anecta Translink worked vigorously to finalize a transaction and ensured that potential industrial and financial buyers had been invited into the process. With Anecta Translink’s support, we have achieved our goal in finding a stable and trusted investor such as Suiris Invest,” says Thomas Wivemar CEO and founder of the Pontech Group.
The process was carried out as an international sales process where both Swedish and international players were contacted through the M&A network Translink.
Furthermore, Thomas Wivemar says: “Anecta Translink succeeded in developing relationships with several international and national buyer candidates that were not known to us. Although the final buyer was Swedish-based, I would like to stress that the strength of the Translink-offering is that local teams in Europe reach out to international stakeholders through their local networks and in local language, which is a very efficient way of working to identify and reach these buyers.”
