Assemblin establishes ventilation operations in Bergen, Norway
Assemblin has acquired all of the shares in Ingeniørfirmaet R. Torgersen AS in Bergen, thereby further strengthening its ventilation initiative. The acquisition also entails Assemblin establishing operations in the Vestland region for the first time.
Engineering firm R. Torgersen AS was founded in 2004. Today, the company generates sales of about NOK 100 million annually and employs 14 employees at its two offices in Bergen and Førde. Customers include both private and public-sector operations throughout the Vestland region.
“Assemblin actively seeks businesses able to complement its operations geographically or technically. In our analyses, we attach great importance to profitability, a sound culture and an organisational model consistent with our own. The operations that we are now acquiring meet all of these criteria and will form a key component in our continued ventilation initiative. It is also very exciting to be establishing ourselves in a completely new region, opening many opportunities for the future,” says Torkil Skancke-Hansen, President and Business Area Manager for Assemblin Norway.
The business will continue to operate under its own brand but will form part of Assemblin Ventilasjon.
“It is an entirely natural choice for us to sell the business at this time. We have grown strongly over the past year and, to continue growing, we need more resources and more muscle. An important part in choosing Assemblin was our shared view on culture, quality and earnings. We clicked well from the very first meeting, and that’s how it continued,” says Roar Torgersen, CEO of Ingeniørfirmaet R. Torgersen AS.
