Valentum advised Connecting Capital on the sale of Götessons Industri AB to Accent.
Götessons in Ulricehamn was founded in 1984 and has since developed into an international group, offering a full range of workplace solutions with a focus on office spaces.
The broad range of products include desk and floor screens, lighting, seating, wall and ceiling sound absorbers and other office accessories. Akustikmiljö in Falkenberg provides expertise in acoustics. In 2018 the turnover was SEK 300 million, with an annual average growth rate of 18 percent since 2015. In total, the group employs approximately 100 employees.
Accent has acquired the company from the current majority owner Connecting Capital and key employees. The management and Johan Götesson, son of the founder Ola Götesson, will reinvest in the company along with Accent and continue to develop the group in near collaboration.
“We are very pleased that Accent has joined our journey. We feel confident that Accent will bring experience, support and the resources we need in order to develop our international presence and stay on top with our innovative products. We look forward to a strong partnership and are very optimistic about our future growth”, says Emil Johansson, CEO at Götessons.
“We are very impressed by the strong growth we’ve seen at Götessons and are eager to start our partnership. It’s encouraging to have a motivated team joining Accent as partners. We look forward to helping with the international expansion and continuing to support Götessons’ successful product development”, says Niklas Sloutski, partner and CEO at Accent.
