Instalco expands further in Östergötland

Instalco continues to grow in Östergötland via its acquisition of Motala Ströms Installation AB. MSI has its headquarters in Motala and its main business is electrical and plumbing installations and services.

MSI was established in 1941 and today, it has grown into a company with many areas of operations, from electricity and plumbing to contract work and trade in alarm systems, telecommunications and hardware. For the 2017/18 business year, sales were approximately SEK 97 million.

“The acquisition of MSI is another important step in our expansion in the Östergötland region and our business area, West.

They are also a great fit and nice addition to our other companies in the region,” says Klas Larsson, Business Area Manager of Instalco West.

The company consists of the following four subsidiaries, all of which are part of the acquisition: MSI El, MSI Rör, MSI Järn och Larm och Larm & Teleteknik i Motala AB.
