Livingstone’s industrial team has advised the owners of Beneli on its sale to Volati. Livingstone was the exclusive financial advisor to Beneli.
Beneli is a profitable family company in Helsingborg, founded in 1991. The company develops, manufactures, and sells self-adhesive labels for both consumer goods and industrial products. The company also has a unique position within medical labels placed on the skin for monitoring and diagnostics in health care. Beneli reported sales of SEK 156 million (USD 16 million) in 2019 and has approximately 60 employees.
Volati is a Swedish industrial group, formed in 2003, organized in four business areas: Trading, Consumer, Akademibokhandeln and Industry. Volati has operations in 16 countries, over 2,000 employees and annual sales of approximately SEK 7 billion. The acquisition is an add-on acquisition for the Industry business area and the Ettiketto business unit.
“Beneli is an exciting company in an interesting niche with great opportunities. Volati becomes a good owner because of its long-term perspective in owning and developing companies,” says Henrik Lilliehöök at Livingstone.
