Global logistics, freight forwarding & supply chain specialist Woodland Group has acquired WBS Nordic, a logistics supplier to the print and publishing industry across the Nordic Regions.

This follows the part-acquisition of WBS UK by Woodland Group in September 2021.

Woodland Group said in a press release that “we’re pleased to announce that today the two companies added WBS Nordic to their portfolio of jointly owned companies”.

Located in Sweden, WBS Nordic has been under the ownership of Dag & Anna Hannerz since 2010.

Fredrik Tauberman, former business development manager at WBS Nordic, will step into the role of director.

David Burnham, managing director of WBS UK and director of WBS Nordic, said: “I’m excited to announce this acquisition of WBS Nordic AB, which is a key part of our joint growth strategy.

“Joining forces with Woodland Group in 2021 has enabled us to lean on the Group’s significant strength and resources, and we’re now able to further build on this by adding our own in-house team in the Nordics to further create and streamline solutions and opportunities for clients and team members alike.”

Chris Watts, group finance director at Woodland Group, added: “Taking WBS Nordic under full ownership of WBS UK and Woodland Group will allow us to establish a cohesive approach to our high level of customer service, supply chain solutions, and our continuous drive to future-proof our clients’ supply chains while creating opportunities for development and growth for all stakeholders. This acquisition further strengthens our joint companies’ ecosystem, and we look forward to continuing to grow from here.”
