O.B.Wiik is acquired by Zurhaar & RUBB AS

The owners of O.B.Wiik and Zurhaar & RUBB AS have agreed on an acquisition of O.B.Wiik. This means that we will be part of the same group as RUBB Industries. Two strong companies are thus merging, with the goal of creating a significant and leading player in existing markets for halls, work tents, events, tarpaulins and tent-based products and solutions.

In total, we get 166 years of experience. This benefits our customers.

O.B.Wiik exists as a company
Although we will now be part of a new group, O.B.Wiik will continue to exist as a sister company under Zurhaar & Rubb AS. This means that you still meet the same, skilled employees and can relate to the same people as before. O.B.Wiik continues to be O.B.Wiik, but we now get extra support in the back.

New opportunities and better deliveries
Both companies are currently present in several countries. Through the acquisition, we will to an even greater extent be able to increase our local presence – across the globe. With approx. 400 employees in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Poland, Great Britain and the USA, we will get even closer to existing and potential customers.

With a large professional environment and more available resources, we want to create a leading group, which to an even greater extent delivers solutions according to customers’ needs.

Increased financial strength and flexibility
After a few years of difference, we are now entering a more normal year, with ambitions and goals adjusted accordingly. This acquisition means that we can expect to benefit from synergies across the companies, which gives us great faith in the future. Together, O.B.Wiik and RUBB Industries are expected to have sales of NOK 1.5 billion in 2022. The increased financial strength will also give us greater opportunities and increased potential for investments and growth in complementary markets and product groups. We believe that this makes us stronger in existing markets and gives us opportunities in new markets – for the benefit of all our customers, employees and partners!

We look forward to the future!
