About Storskogen

Storskogen is a privately owned company founded in 2012, with a mission to acquire and operate well-managed and profitable companies with leading positions in their respective markets.
Storskogen is divided into three business areas, consisting of 57 business units with over 3,200 employees, more than two-thirds of which are located outside metropolitan regions.

We believe in nurturing the qualities that have made the companies we acquire successful and it is not our intention to divest them. Business owners who sell their life's work to Storskogen can be confident that Storskogen, as a new owner, will contribute its expertise and provide support for the company's continued development and success.

A business owner who sells their company should rest assured that Storskogen, as a new owner, will be committed to the company and support it in the best way possible.”

Daniel Kaplan, CEO

Long-term strategy
and value creation

Anyone who has started a company is aware that it rarely becomes successful overnight. In addition, every company is unique and is affected by varying and sometimes complex factors.
Perseverance and a long-term perspective are therefore often required to create value over time. With this in mind, we have adopted the following philosophy:

  • We do not set any limits on our ownership horizon
  • We prioritise long-term results over short-term gains
  • We strive to run companies with a sustainable business model
  • We have a strong focus on professionalism and business ethics

Entrepreneurship and skills

Storskogen has adopted a proven ownership model whereby acquired companies adhere to the group's principles for financial management and control but retain responsibility for operational business decisions. The companies continue to be responsible for their own strategy, skills and results. To take away responsibility is to diminish the entrepreneurial spirit and drive that form the core of Storskogen's ownership model.

Our range of expertise stems from the array of industries and operations within the group, enabling us to act as a sounding board for the CEOs in various decision-making processes, and to assist our companies with planned management changes.

Through active governance, Storskogen ensures that the companies have functioning business plans and budgets. Acquired companies are integrated into the group's financial management, which provides both parties with effective tools to monitor results from operational activities.

Sustainability

A long-term ambition goes hand in hand with a sustainable perspective and at Storskogen it starts already in the acquisition process when Storskogen analyses companies. A sustainable perspective permeates a number of areas, from efficient resource consumption to creating competitive advantages to safeguarding employees and their skills development.
