Ruukki is expanding its Ruukki Express chain for professional roofers and builders through the acquisition of Plåtleverantören i Stockholm which has activities in Stockholm and Södertalje, Sweden.

The acquisition aims to improve the availability of roofing products and to develop cooperation with customers.

Ruukki Express is Ruukki's residential roofing product store and service concept serving house owners and construction professionals.

There are about 30 Ruukki Express outlets in Finland, Sweden, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Poland, Slovakia and the Netherlands.

Plåtleverantören is a privately-owned company which has been selling steel and other roofing supplies for almost 20 years and is one of the leading distributors of steel roofing products in the Stockholm region. The company has net sales of about seven million euros. 

This acquisition will strengthen our market position in Sweden and especially in the growing Stockholm region, said Area Business Unit Director Hans Andersson, who is responsible for Ruukki's residential roofing products in the Nordic countries.

In addition, it will ensure our ability to offer the best possible service and expertise to sheet metal and installation business customers.
