Sonepar takeover causes specualtion

February has started with a real blockbuster for the electrical wholesale trade, arousing correspondingly great excitement in the sector.

To clarify matters it must be said that the deal between the Danish company Solar A/S and Sonepar, as already reported, only involves the sale of the German business – including GFI, which was taken over by Solar end of 2011 and has already been integrated into Solar Germany for a considerable time.

GFI-Elektro in Austria is not involved, and the company with its headquarters in Vienna and branches in Graz, Innsbruck, Klagenfurt, Linz and Wolfurt remains in the ownership of Solar A/S in Denmark.
