EET Europarts acquires the activities in Kjaerulff1 Digital and Kjaerulff1 Development
Danish broadliner and sparepart specialist EET Europarts continue its expansionary strategy and implement its 18th acquisition since 1998 through the acquisition of the activities "Digital" and "Living" from Kjaerulff1 Digital A/S for an undisclosed amount. EET Europarts have only very limited activities within the acquired activities, so it is expected that activities and brands can develop and grow significantly in EET Europarts auspices, with an expected additional turnover of €14m in 2013. Kjaerulff1 has over the years developed three business areas: Digital, Living and Fiber Active products such as Intelligent Gateways and Smart Home Fiber Optic solutions. In order to ensure an optimal focus on the fiber division which in recent years has undergone a significant growth, the company has for strategic reasons, decided to sell the activities of the "Digital" and "Living" divisions. These two divisions develops and distributes equipment and accessories for audio / video, including digital TV receivers, CA modules, antennas, LNB heads, etc. In addition to this, the activities include also the distribution of a number of high‐end brands including Loewe product range in Denmark, Germany, Norway and Sweden, which have now been merged into local EET Europarts offices. EET Europarts will in the coming months introduce the acquired distribution activities for the remainder of the group subsidiaries in Europe and Africa. CEO Peter Lund, Kjaerulff1 Digital A/S is very pleased to have divested divisions "Digital" and "Living", as he is now able to concentrate its resources in the rapidly growing fiber area.
