Autocirc acquires Norwegian Delehuset AS. The company specializes in dismantling, quality assurance and sales of used truck parts. Through the acquisition, Autocirc strengthens its presence in Norway and becomes an even more complete supplier of spare parts to the automotive industry.
Delehuset has its operations in Kongsvinger, east of Oslo. Here there is a dismantling hall for trucks and a warehouse with over 20,000 truck parts for immediate delivery. Delehuset has built an organization with both the competence and the contacts required for the purchase of attractive objects. The trucks are dismantled by experienced mechanics, and each part is carefully examined to ensure quality before they are sold on to customers, mainly in Norway and Sweden.
Bjarte Kaldestad, Country Manager Autocirc Norway:
“Autocirc’s business model is based on connecting businesses that together can increase the supply of used spare parts to the automotive industry. Delehuset’s competence, their focus on trucks of newer year models and specifically Scania trucks will be an important reinforcement of our offer going forward.”
Magnar Skjæret, CEO of Delehuset AS, says:
“By becoming part of Autocirc, we also become an even clearer part of the solution to one of the great challenges of our time. We really look forward to continuing to work for a more sustainable car industry together with Autocirc and contributing to the group’s circular business model.”
Delehuset will be Autocirc’s ninth 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 circular transition within 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. Autocirc was founded in 2019 and is growing rapidly. Today, the group has 43 companies with over 750 employees and operations in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Great Britain.
