On 3 October, Alektum AS will acquire all the shares in the family owned company Kredittgjenvinning AS. The transaction is an important part of the company’s effort to increase its presence in Norway and will double Alektum Group’s turnover in Norway.

"Norway has since long been a priority market for us, where we have grown primarily with our Swedish clients. This transaction will improve our ability to reach and grow with Norwegian clients," says Mats Augurell, CEO Alektum Group.

Kredittgjenvinning AS was founded in 1995, and today the company has around thirty employees at the Oslo office and a turnover of over NOK 30 million. Since its start, the family owned company has assisted clients with both invoicing and debt collection services, and today the company has a large client base in banking and finance.

"We are thrilled to become a part of Alektum Group and to be able to benefit from the company’s width, skills and drive. New, exciting opportunities will become available to our employees, and our client offering will become complete," says Njål Kleiberg, founder and CEO of Kredittgjenvinning AS, who will, following the acquisition, continue to work in sales and marketing at Alektum AS and be a part of the company’s management.

Work on the merger will start immediately. Both Kredittgjenvinning’s office in Oslo and Alektum’s office in Tönsberg will remain. Employees in both offices will work closely together to build the joint company and a joint culture.

"We want to merge our IT systems as far as possible and create synergies to improve our client offering even more. In the meantime the day-to-day work with our clients will continue as usual," says Rune Asheim, Country Manager for Alektum in Norway.
