New Location in Norway: HELUKABEL Acquires Primatec
The HELUKABEL Group continues to expand internationally and, with its new subsidiary, now services all Scandinavian customers directly in their respective countries.
Expansion of the HELUKABEL group: The international supplier of cables, wires and accessories acquired a majority shareholding in the Norwegian company Primatec AS at the beginning of the year. HELUKABEL’s long-term distribution partner since 1998 has now become the 58th location of the corporate group and joins its strong international network.
Primatec is primarily known in its domestic market as a competent supplier of special cables and is recognized for its deep knowledge in the field of sensor technology. The company, based in Grimstad, south of Oslo, has its own warehouse of around 8,600 sq. ft. (800 square meters), a test laboratory, and cutting and packaging technology. "Being a part of the HELUKABEL group will make us an even stronger partner for our customers and will provide access to new markets," explains Managing Director Cato Larsen. "Primatec and HELUKABEL are united by their great expertise in all matters related to cables. We already know from many decades of cooperation that our companies are a very good fit for each other."
With the new location in Norway and existing subsidiaries in Denmark and Sweden, HELUKABEL is now present throughout Scandinavia."As a result, our customers benefit from shorter delivery times and an even greater, more comprehensive service," emphasizes Holger Weeber, Regional Sales Manager Nordic Countries. "We are very happy to welcome our new colleagues who are already very familiar with the Norwegian market, and, of course, with the HELUKABEL family."
