The Norwegian engineering consultancy company Arealtek AS, which offers consulting, planning and project management within the water, road and wastewater sector in Norway, will now become part of Envidan. The acquisition of Arealtek will particularly strengthen Envidan’s engineering services for the water and wastewater sector in Norway.
Founded in 2009 by Morten Bjøntegaard in Norway, Arealtek has grown from 1 to 21 employees in 12 years. A success that they are now looking forward to develop further with Envidan. Morten Bjøntegaard will continue as general manager of Arealtek and will continue to deliver cost-effective quality solutions to Norwegian customers.
Envidan, which is headquartered in Denmark and has offices in Denmark, Norway and Sweden, is co-owned by the European private equity fund Waterland. With Envidan as a platform, Waterland wants to create a market-leading player in the water sector in Northern Europe. Therefore, CEO of Envidan, Morten Fjerbæk, is also very excited that Arealtek now becomes part of Envidan.
In Envidan, the Arealtek employees will have 320 colleagues, all of whom work within the water cycle, in one way or another. This allows for unique professional advice across Scandinavia. Morten Fjerbæk explains:
“We are not the largest consulting engineering company in Denmark or the Nordic region, but if you look exclusively at services within the water cycle, we are actually among the largest, because we deal exclusively with water. This means that the professional environment we offer our staff is large and highly qualified, and helps to ensure that our customers receive top quality advice.”
Kaspar Kristiansen, Managing Director of Waterland, is also very pleased with the acquisition of Arealtek:
