Swedish firm Kabe Group AB has completed its full takeover of British caravan manufacturer Coachman. Kabe, a well-known name for caravans and leisure vehicles in Sweden, already owned 21.5 per cent of shares in Coachman following a deal in July 2018, but on 19 February 2021, it completed a takeover to acquire the remaining shares.

Coachman fits in well with the Kabek Group and our strategic focus.”

In a statement, Kabe described the acquisition as one which “creates opportunities for synergy effects and enables deeper collaborations in terms of sales, product development and purchasing, as well as the exchange of production technology. The acquisition strengthens KABE's position in the premium segment and becomes a stronger international group. The current management of Coachman will continue to lead the company.”
