Oslo (Norway) / Gothenburg (Sweden), 14 December 2016 - Triton Fund IV portfolio company Scandinavian Business Seating (SBS) has signed an agreement to purchase Malmstolen AB, a Swedish producer of ergonomic swivel chairs marketed under the Malmstolen brand.

Malmstolen AB is based in Stenungsund and has approx. SEK 60 million in sales with resellers in 10 countries around the globe. The company’s five product lines Classic, Premium, Executive, Flexible, and Industrial follows from their belief that ergonomic working tools must be designed according to the human form and the working situation.

We look forward to continue growing and developing the Malmstolen product portfolio and brand, and we see great potential for further international growth", said Thomas Hofvenstam, Investment Advisory Professional and Head of Triton Advisers (Sweden) AB, an adviser to the Triton funds.
