We want to be the leading surface layer company in Sweden and industrial paint is an interesting market niche where we are already present with Stoby Industri. Industrial paint requires a broad competence in paint and production, including technical advice and product processing, qualities that Tinter possesses. Tinter and Stoby Industri, which are already part of Layer Group, combine two of the industry's leading operations and enable both growth and development in the area of ‚Äč‚Äčindustrial paint.

- Tinter is a well-run family company with driven owners who want to stay in the company and develop it to the next level, you can say that it is a typical "Layer company". They show a fine history of development and profitability over time. Niklas, Jesper and Johan have put together a fantastic team and can show customer relationships that extend 10-20 years back in time, which says a lot about their professionalism. Together with the management of Tinter, which we came close to during the process, we look forward to making an investment in industrial paint in the same way as we did in painting, so that within a few years we are the market leader in that segment, says Jonas Danielsson, President and CEO Layer Group.

Tinter has developed a brand that is strongly associated with technical know-how, and has built strong long-term customer relationships with big customers in western Sweden. The company has long worked with optimizing its way of working and it is evident from their long customer relationships, satisfied employees and good profitability that the business is characterized by a very professional organization. Their expertise is welcomed in our group and we look forward to expanding further in industrial paint. We are convinced that Tinter will assist with best practice for future acquisitions and further contribute to a professionalization of the industry.

- When we started the process of finding new owners for Tinter, the care of staff and customers was the highest priority, together with the continued development of the company through working methods, brands and markets. In Layer Group we find a partner that can help us take Tinter to the next level. We are now building something new in industrial paint, together, says Niklas Folkesson, Jesper Folkesson and Johan Klahr.
