Expansion: Solana develops Scandinavian market
Potato breeder becomes shareholder of Danish potato propagation and trading house SCANAX Holding A/S
Solana GmbH & Co. KG takes another step on its international road to success: With the beginning of the company’s 25th anniversary year on July 1st, 2011, it acquires major share in the Danish potato multiplication and trading company SCANAX Holding A/S at the same time.
On basis of the strategic shareholdership into this leading company of the Scandinavian potato industry Solana seeks to grow its business in the Nordic markets of the Scandinavian and Baltic states and secure the access to table- and ware potato business in Europe and Northern Africa. In the medium term, SCANAX is planned to become Solana’s sales arm in the Nordic area.
„We are very happy about the future collaboration with SCANAX“, says Torsten Spill, Managing Director of Solana. „The development of our business in the Scandinavian and Baltic states is very dear to our heart. We are indebted to our employees, whose commitment only made the cooperation with SCANAX possible.“ The Danish trading company is confident, as well, upon this development: „My team and I are looking forward to the close collaboration and we are proud to become a part of the international Solana-family“, says Knud Klinkgaard Pedersen, managing partner of SCANAX Holding A/S.
