The Allerød-based company BWSC has reached an agreement with the Uruguay-based company BERKES for the acquisition of the boiler supply business, which since 2017 has been within the BWSC Group. The agreement involves the acquisition by BERKES of the BWE-technology and the incorporation of highly qualified personnel for design of new-build boilers. The servicing of BWE- and other boilers and the competences of the boiler service team will remain at the core of BWSC’s service business, together with operation and maintenance.
BERKES is an acknowledged boiler manufacturer and have for some time pursued a strategy of playing a more active role on the European market. The acquisition of the BWE technology and the unique competences of the boiler supply team is an important step in fulfilling BERKES’ ambitions.
Nikolaj Holmer Nissen, CEO of BWSC comments “we believe that BERKES will be the right owner for the boiler supply business, as they see the strategic advantages in the technology and have ambitions in this field. We therefore trust and foresee, that our good colleagues in the boiler supply unit will find themselves in good hands when they in January 2022 are transferred to BERKES as part of this agreement.“
For his part, Diego Aramendía, CEO of BERKES comments "we are very happy with this purchase as a magnificent group of qualified engineers has joined the BERKES family as well as a benchmark brand, which has been in the market for many years. Our European positioning is seen reinforced with this acquisition."
