Werksta continues to expand in Norway through the acquisition of Bilskaden Hadeland AS, which operates as a damage repair workshop in Jaren in Oppland.
Bilskaden was previously jointly owned by the largest insurance companies in Norway and was then used as a training and skills facility, until 2014 when five local contractors took over the business. Since then, Bilskaden has developed very positively. Today Bilskaden has 22 employees and sales in 2018 were approximately NOK 34.5 million. In addition, the investment in quality has also qualified the plant as Miljøfyrtårn *.
─ We are happy and proud of the nice development of Bilskaden. At the same time, we have come to the conclusion that continued success will depend on strong partnerships and the ability to invest in equipment, systems and training. Therefore, it feels just right to now hand over the business to Werksta, says Roger Nyhus, CEO of Jaren Invest AS and representative of previous owners.
Werksta now has a total of six workshops in Norway and the ambition is to continue to grow, through acquisitions and by starting new workshops.
─ Bilskaden has a very good reputation in the industry and is known for its professional expertise and high customer satisfaction. We welcome Bilskaden into Werksta and are looking forward to continuing our development together with Lene Cicilie Rud's operations manager and other staff, says Catherine Sahlgren, CEO of Werksta Nordic.
