Levanto Oy has acquired 100% shareholding in the Norwegian Constec Scan-Diamant A/S company.
In 2014 Levanto Oy acquired the Norwegian company Scan-Diamant A/S, as well as 60% of the shares of Constec A/S company. With the acquisition Constec owner of that time, Finn Sande, retired and his daughter May-Britt Sande continued in the company with a 40% stake. Scan-Diamant A/S and Constec A/S merged along the acquisitions and continued operating under the name Constec Scan-Diamant A/S.
In December 2016 Levanto Oy bought May-Britt Sande’s 40% stake and thus owns 100% of Constec Scan-Diamant A/S’s shares. The purchase is part of a strategy to further strengthen Levanto’s position in the stone and construction markets in the Nordics.
Levanto Oy’s head office and production are located in Kauniainen, Finland. In Sweden, a subsidiary Levanto Diamond Tools AB operates in Gothenburg and Stockholm. Constec Scan-Diamant A/S has offices in Oslo and Røros and Levanto Canada Inc., established in September 2016, operates in Quebec, Canada.
