Cibes Lift Group acquires Swedish lift company
Cibes Lift Group acquires Swedish lift company Hiss i Skåne, a company specializing in lift modernization, installation and maintenance.
The acquisition of Hiss i Skåne will strengthen the position of Cibes in the South of Sweden. Hiss i Skåne specializes in modernization, installation and maintenance of conventional lifts and low-speed lifts. At present, Hiss i Skåne has service assignments for approximately 2200 lifts.
"We know that excellent customer and aftersales services are crucial to ensuring a continuous good growth in Sweden, and the region of Skåne is important to us. Given that we have worked closely with Hiss i Skåne for several years, we know that they offer our customers and lift users first-class service and support", says Daniel Söderblom, Country Manager for Cibes in Sweden and Norway.
Strengthen position in southern Sweden
Hiss i Skåne was founded in 2006 by Urban Strandberg, Stefan Laffrenzen and Anders Claus and has quickly grown to become the largest privately-owned lift company in the region of Skåne.
"The acquisition of Hiss i Skåne is perfectly in line with our growth strategy and will both strengthen our position in southern Sweden and broaden our operations and expertise in service and aftersales. Furthermore, Hiss i Skåne will benefit from Cibes’ strength in product development, marketing and sales", says Per Lidström, CEO of Cibes Lift Group.
Hiss i Skåne has close to 30 employees and the company office is in Malmö. The acquisition makes Hiss i Skåne a wholly owned company within the Cibes Lift Group.
