Klokkerholm Karrosseridele has been acquired by the PE fund Capidea

Clearwater Advisor

Klokkerholm Karrosseridele was founded in 1969 by Arne Andersen and has in the years grown organically and through acquisitions of Europarts (2005) and Nordjysk Reservedelslager (2009). In the last 10 years the company has implemented a management ownership, where current CEO Søren Juhl and Chairman Benny Balle Jensen joined the company.

The company consisted, until its sale to Capidea, of the family Andersen, Søren Juhl and Benny Balle Jensen. Earlier this year, the owners decided to explore ways to complete the ownership succession, so that the family could resign from the ownership group.

Capidea is, due to the transaction, the majority shareholder in Klokkerholm Karrosseridele, while Chairman Benny Balle Jensen and CEO Søren Juhl continue as joint owners.
