Pordrän’s financials are expected to be consolidated into Vestum from April 2022, provided that the indicative timetable for the completion of the acquisition can be followed.
Comments from Conny Ryk, CEO of Vestum:
Today we welcome Pordrän – a market-leading niche company within moisture protection – to Vestum! For almost 60 years, Pordrän has supplied high-quality products for moisture protection and is today one of the market's strongest brands with a nationwide network of resellers. Pordrän possesses unique technical competence and, with its long industry experience and modern production facility, is well positioned to achieve high growth. Pordrän benefits from underlying market trends such as stricter building regulations, increased need for energy efficiency and increased environmental awareness. We are very much looking forward to continuing to develop Pordrän together with the previous owners, says Conny Ryk, CEO of Vestum.
