Today, Holmris and B8 signed an agreement to merge the two companies. With this merger, we are creating a Nordic leader in the professional furniture market with a total revenue of DKK 1.1 billion (nearly EUR 150 million) and a combined staff of more than 400.
The name of the new company will be HOLMRIS B8.
In recent years, HOLMRIS has seen vigorous growth in all four of its customer segments – Office, Learning, Care and Hospitality – and enters into the merger with the largest revenue. To continue down this ambitious path in both Denmark and abroad, HOLMRIS needs a strong framework for growth.
B8 currently possesses several well-implemented IT and ERP systems, modern production facilities and tried-and-tested service and environmental concepts, which will be a huge benefit for us and our customers.
CEO Henrik Holmris.
The ambition is further growth and this merger provides a solid platform for continued expansive development in both Northern Europe and selected export markets.
The merger is not final until it has been approved by the Danish Competition and Consumer Authority. This approval is expected around 1 April 2018.
