About Novedo

Novedo is a group of companies that acquires and develops companies led by entrepreneurs that want to both sell and move their business forward.

On that premise, Novedo acquires commercially successful companies with a positive work culture – companies with engaged employees, satisfied customers, high profit margins and a strong cash flow.

The entrepreneurs enter into a partnership with Novedo. They continue to run their companies with the same positive spirit, but with more opportunities for growth. The ability for entrepreneurs to share their experience and find strategic support makes them stronger together.

Our Entrepreneurs

Valter Eklund – VE Sten

Mikael Stjernborg, CEO Valter Eklund-bolagen

At the age of 39, Mikael Stjernborg has been CEO and a partner in the company for 15 years. During that time, he and Jonas Eklund, who is the third generation of the Eklund family, have developed the family-owned business that is now more than 80 years old. Sales have increased ten-fold due to organic growth, and the company is firmly established as a leading supplier of stone solutions for construction, buildings and interiors.

Mikael Stjernborg sees the company as a business that values its employees, customers, suppliers and the company’s history. Being part of a larger context, while also being able to run the company without any changes, is therefore important.

"

I have changed and improved everything that I can, and that has generated results. With Novedo as our partner, we can now move our business forward. The fact that they see and respect the company’s history and soul is one of the reasons why we decided to sell to them. And also why we are partnering with Novedo.

Per-Johan Dahlgren, CEO Novedo

Per-Johan Dahlgren grew up in Anderstorp in the Småland region of Sweden, and became interested in industrial activities at an early age. He also became interested in business development while working in various industries during his holidays.

And he has continued to follow that path. After completing his studies, he moved to China to build up a Swedish industry there from the ground up. That gave him entrepreneurial experience that led to a position as CEO of AQ Group and later CEO of S:t Eriks Group.

Per-Johan Dahlgren became CEO of Novedo in spring 2021 with the goal of building a strong group of companies by bringing together driven and professional entrepreneurs.

"

Successful companies have already created a strong business culture, but the company’s identity can only be understood by meeting the entrepreneur. That is the most important part of our work to find successful companies with great entrepreneurs.

    SUSTAINABILITY

    When Novedo evaluates an acquisition candidate, sustainability is always a factor. Novedo bases its sustainability assessment on the UN Sustainable Development Goals, or the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainable development. We want to be sure that the entrepreneur has concentrated their environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives on the areas in which their company has the greatest potential to contribute to the achievement of these goals within its own operations, as well as for their customers.

    Novedo has chosen to focus its own ESG initiatives on SDG 8, 9 and 11. We therefore promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all, resilient infrastructure and inclusive and sustainable industrialisation, innovation, and safe, resilient and sustainable cities and settlements.
