Eelectron Spa Acquisition

On 15th January 2024, Investment AB Latour, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Bemsiq AB, acquired 51% of the shares in Eelectron S.P.A.

Established in 1994, Eelectron is a KNX technology specialist and has over 25 years of experience in the development of hardware and software devices for smart building, energy efficiency, and hospitality applications with a strong focus on design and technology.

The company has its head office and manufacturing in Milan (Italy) and customers around the world. Products are used at airports, hotels, hospitals, museums, administrative and office buildings, as well as in smaller commercial buildings and in private residential property.

Eelectron, as a part of onboarding Bemsiq as the new majority owner in the company, has simultaneously acquired IPAS GmbH, a German developer and manufacturer of KNX and DALI building automation devices. Together, Eelectron and IPAS have about 60 employees, an estimated annual revenue of EUR 26 million and a profit level well above Latour’s financial target.

Bemsiq has in recent years created a strong position within the building automation field device market in Europe and North America, and the investment in Eelectron expands Bemsiq’s product range with a full-service KNX product offering, with the ambition of growing the cooperation and ownership over time.

Bemsiq is continuing its buy-and-build strategy of profitable growth in the building automation field device market.
