Layer Group establishes in Blekinge and Kalmar counties

With its strong position, especially in Blekinge, Wahlqvist Måleri is a sought-after player in our group. Geographically, it is a very good strategic acquisition as we now occupy an area where we previously had a limited foothold. At the same time, it is a high-quality and fine company that becomes part of our group.

The company was founded in Karlskrona in 2004 and today it has over 40 employees spread across their locations in Karlskrona, Nybro, Ronneby and Sölvesborg. They offer services in traditional painting to municipalities, real estate companies and private property owners.

In Wahlqvist Måleri, we get a company that can help create synergies for our group, both geographically and through their way of work. They have an interesting process thinking and advanced positions in digitization, which can add value to our group.

- It is very gratifying that we are now establishing in Blekinge and Kalmar counties, and breaking new ground with Wahlqvist Måleri feels inspiring. It is a painting company with modern workflows that shows good results thanks to investments in its employees and a digitalized work environment. Jörgen Wahlqvist, CEO of Wahlqvist Måleri, is both committed and driven and will be a great asset in our group of driven entrepreneurs, says Jonas Danielsson, CEO of Layer Group.

- We are happy to be part of Layer Group and be part of their development. I look forward to working together with the strong corporate group that Layer Group forms and at the same time to continue to work with a focus on our customers and talented employees. Wahlqvist is the local company with the strength you get from belonging to a larger group. A security for both employees and customers, says Jörgen Wahlqvist, CEO of Wahlqvist Måleri.
