The loan has been provided to finance Trelleborg’s acquisition of CGS Holding a.s., a manufacturer of agricultural, industrial and speciality tires as well as engineered polymer solutions, based in the Czech Republic.

CGS Holding a.s. includes the businesses Mitas, Rubena and Savatech. The acquisition was finalised in May 2016 and is expected to further strengthen and complement Trelleborg’s position in a number of areas and markets.

Trelleborg AB is a world leader in engineered polymer solutions that seal, damp and protect critical applications in demanding environments. The group is headquartered in Trelleborg, Sweden. Following the acquisition, it has approximately 23,000 employees in 50 countries.

Fulfilment of NIB's mandate

The acquisition made Trelleborg a global leader in agricultural tires and reinforced its position in the industrial tires sector. The acquisition is further expected to generate cost and sales synergies. A total of 13 production facilities in the Czech Republic, Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, Mexico and the U.S. have been acquired, which is expected to broaden Trelleborg’s geographical reach and add new positions in complementary niches.
