Tessu is a perfect match with our existing businesses with its strategic supply position centrally in Europe and a high level of competence in commercial kitchen ventilation systems engineering and management. It will be a great addition to our business and we look forward to the synergies we can realize."- says Axel Berntsson, President & CEO Absolent Group
