Norconsult acquires the Danish consultancy company LB Consult. With the acquisition, Norconsult strengthens its expertise in consulting engineering services within construction and property and its closeness to clients in East- and South Jutland.
A total of 50 employees, located across offices in Aarhus, Kolding and Grenaa, will become part of Norconsult, which is now growing to 500 employees in Denmark.
– The acquisition of LB Consult is in line with Norconsult's strategy to consolidate a stronger and more balanced position in the Nordics, which includes growth in Denmark, where we continue the good development. LB Consult primarily strengthens Norconsult's position within construction and client consultancy in the Danish market, and we look forward to welcoming 50 new co-workers to a company that develops the best expertise, works for a strong culture and local presence, says Egil Hogna, CEO of Norconsult.
Closer to the client
Thomas Bolding Rasmussen, CEO of Norconsult Denmark, is looking forward to welcoming new, talented co-workers, which gives Norconsult the opportunity to get closer to our clients geographically and in consulting.
– We are very pleased to welcome LB Consult's employees to Norconsult. They have a high professional competence and a strong culture with a focus on simplicity and closeness to the clients, which is a perfect fit with us. The acquisition allows us to get closer to our clients with new offices in Jutland, and we are also strengthening our expertise within construction and client consultancy. I am convinced that the acquisition will be a big advantage for both the employees and the business, says Thomas Bolding Rasmussen
LB Consult is also happy to become part of Norconsult. According to Lars Bager, the company's founder and CEO, the acquisition will strengthen the employees' development as there is room for interdisciplinary collaboration in a wide range of fields in Norconsult.
– It is fantastic for LB Consult and my colleagues that we will now be part of Norconsult, where we can continue the journey, we have been on for over 30 years. The employees will get unique development opportunities as Norconsult puts emphasis on professional development. This is an exciting time, and we will continue to work on exciting tasks for the private and public sector. We will now be able to offer our clients and partners more specialized consulting services, and they can be confident that we will continue to be proactive and adding value, says Lars Bager.
Six acquisitions in six years
LB Consult is the sixth acquisition for Norconsult Denmark since 2017, where the business has gone from 60 to 500 employees in the same period.
According to Thomas Bolding Rasmussen, the investment will help to ensure further growth, create synergies and strengthen competences across the organisation.
