Derome, Sweden’s largest family owned wood industry focused company, acquires Woody Anderstorp and joins the construction trade on January 1, 2020. The purchase price was not disclosed.
Upon Derome’s entry, the construction trade will change its name to Derome and the range will be expanded with hardware. The plant will also turn to professional customers in the future. All employees are offered the opportunity to work and the customers automatically get an agreement with Derome.
According to the announcement, it is the starting point for Derome’s investment in Småland and follows a rapid geographical expansion along the entire coast from Bohuslän to Blekinge.
Woody Anderstorp was founded in 2012 by Per Enocson, Victor Svensson and Junic AB. With a focus on customer service and quality products, the development has been very fast. In 2019, sales are expected to amount to just over 50 million with 7 employees.
Woody Anderstorp is interesting for Derome, because of both the geographical location and the competence, focus and culture that exist at the company.
“This is the starting shot for Derome’s investment in Småland. Our goal is for the construction trade in Anderstorp to grow and we will also evaluate the opportunity to establish ourselves in more locations.
Smaland with its strong market is interesting for Derome. We are already a major supplier of roof trusses in the region and buy forest raw material from here to our sawmill in Kinnared. Therefore, it is natural for us to also establish construction and hardware trade in the region, says .
The construction trade in Anderstorp is a fine company. The owners run it with the same values as Derome. They are down-to-earth and of high quality, they focus on professional customers and see as their main task to simplify customers’ everyday lives.”Johan Winroth, CEO of Derome Byggvaror & Träteknik
