Sweden-based expandable polystyrene (EPS) producer BEWiSynbra Group has acquired BEWi Drift Holding (BDH) for NOK400m ($45.1m).

The acquisition of BDH will provide BEWiSynbra with an expanded product portfolio and geographical reach.

For the deal, BEWiSynbra will pay NOK100m ($11.3m) through a directed issue of shares in the company while the remaining NOK300m ($33.8m) will be paid as a cash consideration.

BEWiSynbra Group CEO Jonas Siljeskär said: “Our strategic priorities are to continue to grow, further expand our circular activities and continue to innovate new sustainable solutions for our customers.

“With the acquisition of BDH, we further strengthen our position as a major international provider of insulation and packaging solutions, in line with our long-term strategy for growth and diversification.”

The company mainly comprises four operating subsidiaries, namely Nordic Emballasje, Norplasta, Biobe and Tommen Gram.

It has three production facilities in Norway, and sales representation in Norway, Iceland, Sweden, Denmark, Russia and Lithuania.

According to BEWiSynbra, BDH has reported approximately NOK 850m ($95.8m) revenue last year.
