Autocirc acquires Rogaland Bildeler AS in Norway. The company’s operations are particularly focused on the dismantling of collision-damaged cars and the resale of quality-assured parts and components.
Rogaland Bildeler was established in 1999 in Eigerøy, south of Stavanger. The core of the business is a modern, environmentally friendly dismantling facility that makes it possible to reuse up to 95 percent of the car. The company handles between 2,000-2,500 cars each year, the majority of which are collision-damaged vehicles of newer year models. Rogaland Bildeleren’s stock includes over 40,000 vehicle parts for sale to both private individuals and car workshops.
Bjarte Kaldestad, Country Manager Autocirc Norway, says:
“With its well-run business, Rogaland Bildeler is a fine addition to Autocirc’s offer. Their competence, contacts and existing stock will contribute to a larger assortment of quality-assured vehicle parts for the second-hand market, both in the short and long term.”
Glenn Midttun, CEO Rogaland Bildeler AS, says:
“It feels very inspiring to continue our work forward as part of the Autocirc group. We share the same ambition to reduce the automotive industry’s climate footprint – and the reuse of parts and components plays a decisive role in the transition required to succeed.”
Rogaland Bildeler becomes Autocirc’s eighth company in Norway. The deal is part of Autocirc’s long-term strategy to acquire businesses to offer a more sustainable alternative to newly produced vehicle parts.
Autocirc works for a circle is change in the automotive industry. We make sure that used car parts get back on the roads again – or that materials and components can be useful in completely different products and contexts.
