Stockholm (Sweden), Helsinki (Finland) – 5 March 2024 – Triton today announces its intention to combine its portfolio companies, Assemblin and Caverion, into the newly formed Assemblin Caverion Group. The combination unifies the strengths and capabilities of both entities, offering a broader range of services and providing sustainable technical solutions to an expanded customer base. Upon completion, Assemblin Caverion Group will operate across ten countries, generate an annual turnover of approximately EUR 3.8 billion/SEK 43.5 billion, and employ around 21,900 skilled employees. Upon combination, Assemblin Caverion Group will become a market leading forerunner providing the most comprehensive and cutting-edge solutions across the full lifecycle of the built environment.

This combination represents the latest milestone in Triton's track record of investing in the technical service and installation sector. With a history of nearly 20 years in the sector and a realized and current portfolio of multiple investments, including NVS, Bravida, Unica, Assemblin and Caverion, Triton continues to demonstrate its expertise in building leading companies in the sector.  

The new group will remain focused on its dedicated workforce across all the countries where Assemblin Caverion Group is present, aiming to be recognised as the industry leader and the most attractive employer among technical and advisory professionals. For customers, the combination means a trusted partner with added capabilities to meet the evolving demands of the market and focus on sustainability.

The leadership team for the new group will be comprised of executives from both Assemblin and Caverion. Assemblin CEO, Mats Johansson, will become the Group CEO of Assemblin Caverion Group. Caverion CEO, Jacob Götzsche, will become Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors of the new group. Both the Assemblin and Caverion brands will continue in their local markets within the new group.

Jacob Götzsche and Mats Johansson, representing the new top leadership team of Assemblin Caverion Group, said: “Assemblin and Caverion demonstrate a commitment to leading technical expertise, excellent customer service as well as smart and sustainable solutions. By merging these strong and people-centric cultures, we're creating a company with unique capabilities, combined strengths and shared vision.” 

Assemblin Caverion Group is positioned to leverage market trends, particularly addressing the aging building infrastructure across Europe and responding to increasing customer demand for energy efficiency, sustainability, and automation within buildings, infrastructure and industry.

The new group will become a market leader across the Swedish, Finnish and Norwegian markets. Coupled with Caverion's established presence in Northern continental Europe, Assemblin Caverion Group has solid prospects for organic growth and continued strategic M&A across all markets.

Hans Petter Hjellestad, Investment Advisory Professional at Triton, said: “We are truly excited about uniting these complementary businesses into a new group, built on the same principles that have guided our investments in the business services sector. This merger is a logical step, as Assemblin and Caverion share robust cultures and values, and also offer complementary services, capabilities and visions. We anticipate leveraging our operational expertise and sector knowledge to steer both companies towards forming a future-oriented business.”
