Algol Chemicals Strengthens its Scandinavian Footprint through the Acquisition of Amixo AB

Algol Chemicals, a leading chemicals distributor in Northern Europe, strengthens its position in the Scandinavian market through the acquisition of Amixo AB. Amixo AB specializes in the distribution of Ammonia gas and has recently invested also in the production of Aqueous Ammonia solution for various industrial applications, particularly the growing environmental segment. Amixo is also involved in handling, packaging and distribution of water treatment chemicals.

The acquisition of Amixo AB significantly strengthens Algol Chemicals’ presence in the Scandinavian market. Amixo’s product portfolio including Ammonia Gas distributed in various packing formats and Aqueous Ammonia complements Algol Chemicals’ offering in the Industrials and Environmental & Energy Business Units. Furthermore, the Kumla production site offers excellent possibilities for further expansion.

Juha Jokinen, Managing Director of Algol Chemicals, says: “We are very excited about joining our forces with Amixo’s professional team, which has created a solid market position in the Scandinavian market over the past 25 years. Through joining our forces we will be in a better position to serve our Scandinavian customers through a wider product portfolio and a local production site in Kumla.”

 “At Amixo we all feel happy and confident to get Algol as the new owner, which is an important factor for an easy and successful integration between the companies.

We all look forward to working jointly with Algol with both existing and new customers”, comments Torbjörn Kjellner, Managing Director of Amixo AB.

The closing of the deal is expected to take place in the coming four weeks.
