Divestments

Thule

EQT II bought the Swedish Thule Group, a world leading manufacturer of car equipment such as rooftop boxes, snow chains and trailers, in 1999.

While under EQT’s ownership Thule underwent an extensive development programme, building three factories in Poland, establishing exports to new markets, broadening the product offer and making two supplementary acquisitions, the snow chain manufacturer König S.p.A and the trailer manufacturer C&C Distributors Inc.
