On August 1st, 2018, Jernbro Industrial Services AB received a new owner when it was acquired by affiliates of Aksiom Partners Fund I, LP (“Aksiom”).
Aksiom was formed in 2017 and invests in medium-sized European companies that offer and supply advanced technical services for customers in the industrial and energy sectors, and that have a high growth potential.
In conjunction with the acquisition, Mikael Jansson (born 1961) has been appointed as the new President and CEO. Mikael brings solid experience gained from the development of technology service companies active in the industrial, property and energy segments. Mikael has previously held CEO positions at companies including Fortum, Dalkia Industripartner, Autotank and VKG. For the past six years, Mikael has been CEO and Group Manager of Veolia’s Nordic operations.
“Jernbro has recently completed restructuring work, and is now ready for growth with a primary focus on the industrial and energy segments in Sweden and the other Nordic countries”, says Mikael Jansson.
“A strong foundation is now being built upon which we can base our future development: Aksiom as a new growth-oriented owner with ambitious objectives, and a Jernbro in good condition – providing the platform for our building work with regard to geographical coverage, competence within maintenance-technology, customer portfolio and a wide range of services within projects and maintenance. I see good opportunities for future growth – particularly in the area of services, which clearly contributes to improving the competitiveness of the industry – and I am very proud to have been entrusted with the role of leading Jernbro further towards new objectives”, concludes Mikael.
