The Icelandic investor Kaldbakur has acquired Optimar International AS after negotiations with the company's former shareholders, the German investment firm Franz Haniel & Cie.

Optimar, headquartered in Valderøya just outside Ålesund, is a world leader in automated fish processing systems for use aboard fishing vessels, on land, and in aquaculture. As a global company with branches in Norway, Spain, Romania, and the USA, it is known by its customers in more than 30 countries for offering innovative product development and world-class service.

Reliable long-term partner for the global fishing industry

Kaldbakur serves as the investment vehicle for the owners of the Icelandic seafood company Samherji, a leading family-owned vertically integrated company founded in 1983 that operates a fleet of fishing vessels, fish processing factories, and land-based fish farming facilities.

Through the acquisition of Optimar, Kaldbakur aims to strengthen its strategic network in the region.

Optimar is a reliable, long-term partner for the global fishing industry with strong customer relationships. "We are excited about the opportunities our partnership will bring to both Optimar and our broader portfolio", said Eiríkur S. Jóhannsson, CEO of Kaldbakur.

Haniel acquired Optimar in 2017 and has since supported the development of the company in a partnership.

Like coming home

"Kaldbakur is the perfect strategic partner for Optimar at this time and has committed to offering its deep knowledge and proven expertise to further shape the company's future. We sincerely wish both the Optimar and Kaldbakur teams much success in their new partnership," said Thessa von Hülsen, investment partner at Haniel.

Optimar CEO Georg Saint-Denis said in a comment that Optimar is very pleased with this agreement and feels that this is the right and good owner for Optimar.

"This is a bit like coming home for Optimar. The companies know each other well through a long and good collaboration and see this as a strategic turning point for Optimar."
