On December 20, Soltech Energy Sweden AB (publ) acquired 70 percent of the shares in Falu Plåtslageri AB (Falu Plåtslageri) and Tak & Bygg in Falun AB (Takab) with access on January 5, 2022. The companies have sales of approximately SEK 15 million and SEK 25 million, respectively, with profitability and has a total of about 30 employees based in Falun. Going forward together with Soltech, the plan is to integrate solar energy into the product range and increase both sales and earnings.

Soltech has an offensive growth strategy with acquisitions in the solar, roof, facade and electrical engineering industries. Together, these companies will create synergy effects and build a strong hub with cross-border expertise that can offer complete solutions. The solar energy group is now acquiring two reputable companies in Falun, which strengthens Soltech’s presence in Mellansverige and not least in Dalarna.
– It feels great that Soltech is now also to be found in the heart of Dalarna. Takab and Falu Plåtslageri are well-run companies with a good reputation and their will to integrate solar energy in their solutions inspires. I would like to warmly welcome Jon Onsbacke and all employees to the Group, says Stefan Ölander, CEO of Soltech Energy.
Two companies with a solid history
Takab was founded in 2004 and has since had a successful journey. In 2017, Takab’s owner acquired Falu Plåtslageri, a classic sheet metal manufacturer, founded as early as 1952. Since then, the companies have been run by the same owner, Jon Onsbacke. Both companies have great ambitions to add solar energy to their offerings as they now become part of Soltech.
– This is a fantastic day for both Takab and Falu Plåtslageri. We are highly motivated to become part of the Soltech Group and to be able to continue to offer high-quality roofing, adding on solar energy solutions in the future. This will strengthen us, create new opportunities and we are looking forward to getting to know our new sister companies, says Jon Onsbacke, CEO of Falu Plåtslageri and Takab.
