The Commission approved the proposed acquisition of Logstor, of Denmark, by a private equity investment company Triton Group (“Triton”). Logstor is active in the market for the manufacture of pre-insulated pipes used mainly for district heating and district cooling systems. Battenfeld-Cincinnati (“BC”), one of the companies ultimately controlled by Triton, is active in the production and sale of plastic processing machines including single screw extruders, a piece of machinery which is used in the production of pre-insulated pipes. The Commission found that BC’s competitors would still have a sufficient number of alternative customers and Logstor’s competitors would still have a sufficient number of alternative suppliers for both new extruders and spare parts. Therefore, the Commission concluded that the acquisition would not significantly impede effective competition in the EEA or any substantial part thereof. Source: Commission Press Release 26/08/2013.
