The BINAR-group acquires the French company Mercura S.A.S.

The BINAR group has through its French subsidiary Standby S.A. acquired Mercura S.A.S. Mercura develop, manufacture and market equipment for the emergency and commercial vehicles, and has its operation in Blois and Nantes, France.

Mercura is market leading in France within light and signalling and is thereby similar to Standby which has a corresponding position in the north part of Europe.

Mercura fits very well into our FRT-division. All together the companies will have access to a wider product range and thereby be able to provide better offers to the customers in their respective markets, says the CEO of the Binar group, Ingemar Pettersson.

Mercura and Standby AB have been cooperating within different areas for about 10 years. Both companies have resources for product development and production but have their main markets in different geographical parts of Europe. In this way we will have synergies, which give possibilities to an increased competitiveness, says the MD of Standby, Anders Wiqvist.
