The acquisition of Duka Poland and the Duka trademark by the family-owned trading house Bergendahls was finalised yesterday. Bergendahls strengthens its position on one of the most dynamic markets in Europe. Besides the 24 stores now acquired the group already operates 10 Glitter stores in the country.

Bergendahl Home Deco acquired Granit from CG Duka Retail AB in February. The background for now taking a further step by also acquiring the profitable Duka Poland, as well as the Duka trademark rights globally, excluding the Swedish retail business, is the ambition to become a leading player within home interior design.

Keystone Advisers acted as advisor to the seller CG Duka Retail AB in the transaction.
