“EET has been on an amazing journey in the last few years, delivering ever-higher value to both customers and vendors, which has resulted in solid growth rates with increased profitability,” said Drewsen. “We are continuing this journey with a new ambitious international partner in Pamplona.”
Martin Schwab, co-managing partner at Pamplona, added: “We are partnering with Søren and his team to take part in the next chapter of EET’s growth. The company has developed into a leading technology components and solutions distribution player across Europe, and represents a highly attractive platform with numerous organic and inorganic growth levers.”
