FairCap acquires Överum from CNH

Share this item

FairCap has completed the acquisition of the Överum agricultural plough business in Sweden (“Overum AB”) from CNH Industrial N.V. Överum has been operating as a subsidiary of Kongskilde from Denmark, which is part of CNH.

Overum AB is a manufacturer of agricultural machinery, in particular ploughs, with a long heritage dating back to the 16th century. The company is headquartered in Överum (Sweden). The divesture concerns a production site in Överum, Sweden with 70 employees, intellectual property and inventory related to this product line. 

This sale of Överum is due to CNH’s commitment to fully focus its R&D, manufacturing and commercial sales efforts on their core product portfolio and the growth of their in-house tech stack.

Max Koch-Heintzeler, Managing Partner of FairCap, states: “We welcome Överum to the FairCap family and are convinced that Överum, as a stand-alone company can realize its full potential.

Ploughing has been a core agricultural tool for many centuries and will remain a necessity for soil cultivation, especially for weed control in organic farming, which does not allow the use of chemical herbicides.”

Niccolò Azzarini, Head of FairCap Italy, adds: “We are proud to have closed a complex cross border carve-out transaction involving FairCap’s Italian and German offices. Following the carve-out Överum will be able to fully focus on the manufacturing and distribution of ploughs and spare parts.”

Stefano Scalarandis, Associate Operating Partner of FairCap, concludes: “Our team will support Överum during this complex carve-out transition period and in achieving its long-term growth plans. Together with the workforce of Överum, we are committed to making Överum stronger. Improving social, environmental, and economic aspects of the business will be a key element of our future strategy.”
