Arntzen de Besche has assisted Castik Capital with the acquisition of Element Logic

We have assisted Castik Capital with the agreement to acquire a majority stake in the Norwegian company Element Logic. Castik will jointly own the company alongside Element Logic's founders, Dag-Adler Blakstad and Kjell Blakseth, the company's management team and employees.

Element Logic with solid growth and NOK 1 billion turnover  

Element Logic is a leading  integrator for automated warehouse solutions both in Norway and in Europe. Today, the company employs 170 specialists who design, implement and deliver a wide range of automated and static warehouse automation solutions for customers in a range of industries across Europe. The company was the world's first AutoStore partner, and during 2020 they have implemented more AutoStore facilities than any other company. The result was a turnover of more than NOK 1 billion in the previous year.  

- There are an incredible number of exciting opportunities ahead that open up further when we add support from Castik, along with our expertise, experience and ambitions," dag-Adler Blakseth, co-founder and CEO of Element Logic, said in a press release from Castik Capital. 

Castik will contribute to further expansion  

As a majority owner, Castik wants to contribute to continued expansion in Europe, while exploring opportunities to expand the company's services and software capabilities, partly through selective mergers and acquisitions. 

- We are very excited about the opportunity to partner with Dag-Adler and the rest of the Element Logic team and contribute to continued growth for the company. Element Logic has achieved fantastic growth in recent years in a market for warehouse automation that is still in its infancy, Castik Capital partner Michael Phillips said in the press release.
