Strukton Rail has taken over 50% of the shares of Dual Inventive Holding, taking effect from 1 January 2016. Both parties signed the agreement confirming this transaction on 4 February. The daily management of Dual Inventive and its vision and strategy will remain unchanged.
Both parties based their decision on the belief that Dual Inventive’s ambitions can best be achieved through cooperation with the market and that Strukton Rail’s ambitions can best be achieved with innovation power from the market. Dual Inventive and Strukton Rail have been working together for a long time in different fronts. Both companies focus on the international market and regularly meet in different countries including Sweden, France, Belgium, Italy, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Australia.
“We have decided to join our innovative and network forces, which makes it easier for us to offer the entire range of products and services. A good example is Australia, that demands for both maintenance expertise and the implementation of processes for safe access to the tracks.”
Lex van der Poel, managing director of Dual Inventive
