XL-BYGG Västerås has its origin in Ransta Snickeri AB which was founded by Ulrika’s grandfather back in 1939. Today XL-BYGG Västerås operates one store in Ransta (between Sala and Västerås) and a new store in Västerås (opened in March 2016).
Ulrika and Patrik has noted the ongoing consolidation in the industry and felt attracted to the idea of being part of a larger organisation in order to stand stronger in the market going forward.
“We have been approached by a number of firms but we were attracted by Fresks and their ambitions as well as the opportunity to reinvest and to continue being a part of the XL-BYGG chain”, says Patrik Andersson.
”We really appreciate Ulrika’s and Patrik’s spirit in combination with a state-of-the-art store in a city like Västerås” says Leif Lindholm, CEO Fresks Group.
After the acquisition Fresks Group will have a total of 23 stores with pro forma revenues of c. SEK 1.4 bn and c. 375 employees.
