About Pegroco

Pegroco is an investment company that invests in smaller and medium sized, unlisted companies, predominantly in Sweden. We primarily seek companies with an established market position and preferably those that have a need for a major change. This need can be structural or business oriented. It can for example be when management wants to buy out the operation from the owners, or when the entrepreneur owner wants to expand the company into new business opportunities but lacks resources. Or it can simply be when the founder/owner wants to sell after many years of hard work.

We are active owners and we focus on investments where we can contribute to building value in the company by using our collective operational, industrial and financial experience, and our strong business network.

Pegroco also offers professional services, Pegroco Advisory, which includes services within capital procurement, company transactions and business development.

We have during our ten years in operation made over twenty investments. Our investments during 2016 were in the measuring technology company Mantex AB in April , in the drilling and blasting company Norrbottens Bergteknik AB in May, in the lift service company RC Hisservice AB in November, and in December in the auto maintenance company Mechanum and in the acquisition of KL Ventures II AB.We have then continued to build around Norrbottens Bergteknik by acquiring three of Norway’s leading companies within drilling and blasting, Vestfold Fjellborring AS and Norsk Fjellspregning AS in 2017 and Songdalen Fjellsprenging AS in 2018.

We ended 2017 by acquiring the Sarlin industrial furnaces operations. The company is the market leader in Sweden within industrial furnaces for heat treatment of metals and counts among its customers many of Sweden’s large industrial companies. Going forward the company will operate under the namne Nordic Furnaces.

In July 2018 we made a complementary acquisition within our hub-company in lift services, Nordic Lift, when we acquired Hissteknik i Göteborg AB.
