Sale of Koteko to Prevas

Nygren Nordén Advisory was an advisor to the sellers of Koteko in the sale to Prevas.

Prevas has signed an agreement to acquire 100 percent of Koteko AB. Koteko is an engineering company with a good reputation in advanced industrial process automation. Koteko also owns 80 percent of Koteko Installation AB, which is a fast-growing company in industrial installation and service. All in all, Koteko can deliver complete solutions from concept to commissioned plant.

The business comprises a total of 28 people native to Västerås with a turnover in 2021 of SEK 68 million. Koteko was founded in 1994 and has a strong position in industries facing major and important change, such as the energy and steel industry.

– It will be great fun to welcome these recognized skilled employees, says Magnus Welén, regional manager at Prevas in Mälardalen. Koteko complements Preva’s existing business in advanced automation. Together, we become a Nordic leader in advanced industrial automation with the capacity to support customers from idea to a commissioned solution for both discrete manufacturing and the process industry.

Koteko Installation AB can continue to develop well within Prevas. Koteko AB, which has had periodic profitability challenges, can under Preva’s auspices get a stable base for good and sustainable profitability.

Koteko offers engineering services and complete system deliveries combined with a broad service and installation offer. The company’s long and solid experience in the energy and process industry is based on the understanding of the importance of having a functioning facility and constantly optimizing processes to minimize resource use and increase profitability.

It feels very good that we can continue our journey to develop the business and at the same time find ourselves in an environment where there are new opportunities.
