SYSTRA acquires DALCO ELTEKNIK AB
SYSTRA announces the acquisition of Dalco Elteknik AB, an engineering company specialising in railway systems and one of the market leaders in railway signalling. This acquisition reinforces SYSTRA’s skills and resources, enabling the company to offer comprehensive railway system services to both the Swedish and wider Scandinavian markets.
Founded in 1987, Dalco Elteknik AB employs 52 people, working in 9 offices throughout Sweden. Specialized in railway signaling, the company’s services include design services, planning, assessment, reviewing, capacity analysis and project management. Dalco Elteknik AB has managed more than 1,200 projects, particularly for Trafikverket, the Swedish road and railway infrastructure manager, Stockholms läns landsting, the transit organiser for the Stockholm area, as well as for manufacturers.
According to Pascal Mercier, SYSTRA’s Senior Vice-President for Northern Europe:
"Today, SYSTRA is working on the Ostlänken high speed railway project, whereas Dalco Elteknik AB specialises in signalling for conventional railways. Tomorrow, together, we will have all the resources in hand to become a leader in railway engineering systems in the Swedish market. With Dalco Elteknik AB, SYSTRA also gains a platform to expand our activities throughout the Scandinavian countries."
Jan Erik Lindqvist, the founder of Dalco Elteknik AB, adds:
"SYSTRA represents an excellent opportunity for Dalco Elteknik AB employees, both technically and professionally. Since the start of our discussions, I have been impressed by SYSTRA’s concern for mutual respect and their pragmatic approach. Our two companies share a commitment to technical excellence.”
