YIT ACQUIRES MISAB SPRINKLER & VVS AB IN SWEDEN

YIT has acquired all shares in MISAB Sprinkler & VVS AB based in Uddevalla, Sweden. The company has active operations in the regions of Västra Götaland, Värmland, Halland and parts of Småland. The company’s revenue is approximately SEK 60 million i.e. EUR 6.5 million and it employs 40 people.

MISAB Sprinkler & VVS AB has more than 30 years of experience in fire protection and it is currently a complete plumbing and sprinkler system provider. The company offers complete solutions for sprinkler, plumbing, ventilation and industrial systems, from planning and installation to service and maintenance of completed projects. In order to better meet their customers’ unique requirements and to offer cost-effective delivery, MISAB also has a pre-fabrication plant for series production of piping.

The company’s operations consist of 60 percent sprinkler projects and 40 percent plumbing.

“I would firstly like to greet and welcome all of the employees from MISAB to YIT. This acquisition is in line with our strategy of strengthening our position within local markets and offering our customers total solutions in the area of building and industrial services. MISAB’s successful business strengthens us in the area of heating and sanitation, but above all it gives us the opportunity to offer sprinkler installations in western and southern Sweden, which is a good complement to our existing sprinkler business,” says Fredrik Sederholm, CEO of YIT Sverige AB.
