Stockholm – Alantra has advised Sobro and other shareholders on the sale of Vinnergi, a leading Swedish engineering consultancy and solutions provider, to Nordic private equity firm Polaris.
With a local presence throughout Sweden, Vinnergi supports its customers in developing vital infrastructure within telecommunications, electrical power, and buildings. Vinnergi is a “future integrator”, taking a holistic approach based on the needs of the customer by combining engineering consultancy services with hardware, proprietary software, and personnel resource solutions. Driven by a strong management team, dedicated and loyal employees, with CEO Pierre Wallgren at the helm, Vinnergi has shown significant growth in recent years, gaining market share in all its respective business areas. In 2023, turnover amounted to SEK 765mn, with good profitability. With positive market conditions driven by increased outsourcing, digitization, and accelerated energy transition, Vinnergi is in a favorable position for future growth.

Daniel Lilliehöök, Partner Alantra Nordics, said: “It has been a real pleasure for us at Alantra to support Sobro and Vinnergi during this process which ultimately led to a majority investment by Polaris. Pierre and his team at Vinnergi have done an amazing job in establishing Vinnergi as an innovative new player in the market for engineering solutions, serving customers within telecoms, energy and real estate who are facing both challenges and opportunities driven by trends such as digitalization, sustainability, and security. We are convinced that the new partnership with Polaris will enable Vinnergi to capitalize on a multitude of opportunities as the company continues to grow and further expand its capabilities.”
