NOMO ENTERS THE NORWEGIAN BEARING AND POWER TRANSMISSION MARKET

Nomo acquires the Norwegian bearing and power transmission specialist Rotek AS. By this acquisition, Nomo enters the Norwegian market for mechanical power transmission products and services.

“The establishment in Norway has been a strategic objective for many years,” says Mattias Jaginder, CEO of Nomo. “By acquiring Rotek AS, Nomo strengthens its Nordic market position even further.”

 

Rotek AS supplies bearings, power transmission, seals and related services combined with strong technical knowledge. The company is located on the Norwegian west coast in Ålesund and has an annual turnover of approximately 2,4 MEUR. Founded in 1989, Rotek AS has developed strong relationships with both customers and suppliers and has a wide product portfolio including the private label RTK.

“Rotek AS product offering combined with their strong technical knowledge, is completely in line with Nomo’s ambition to operate as a technically skilled solution provider,” says Mattias Jaginder.

 

Ola Erlandsen, former owner and founder of Rotek AS, sees new opportunities joining Nomo: “Becoming a part of the Nomo Group and Axel Johnson International, applying the Nomo business model and portfolio, will allow us to develop and strengthen our concept in the Norwegian market even further.”

The acquisition was closed July 2nd, 2018.

The company was founded in 1948 and has since developed a strong offer in bearings, transmissions and seals in the Nordic market. Nomo supplies products and services to OEM and MRO customers.
