Derome also takes over Bygg-Aktiv retail chain
On 12 April, only two weeks after the announcement of the takeover of the building-supplies trader IMAB Industrihandel, Swedish Derome Group also announced the takeover of the building-supplies retail chain Bygg-Aktiv Material (Bygga). Bygga operates twelve sites in the southern Swedish provinces of Skåne, Blekinge and Småland and last generated annual turnover of SKR400m with a work force of roughly 100.
No details of the purchase price were released. Following the completion of the takeover, the number of sites operated by Derome Byggvaror & Träteknik will rise to 35 and the work force will increase to roughly 850.
