The acquisition is final, following approval by competition authorities.

Competition authorities in Germany and Austria approved the acquisition and plans are being made for the integration of JET-Group into the VELUX Group.

„The approval of our acquisition of JET-Group means we can now move ahead with our plans to strengthen our foothold in the commercial market,“ says David Briggs, CEO of the VELUX Group.

With the acquisition of JET-Group, the VELUX Group becomes one of the leading players in the commercial market in Europe. Combined with its recent acquisitions of Wasco and Vitral, and the ongoing development of VELUX Modular Skylights, the VELUX Group will build a new commercial division to the benefit of customers.

„We now look forward to starting the integration of JET-Group into the VELUX Group. We see a lot of growth potential and possibilities to strengthen our European business to the benefit of our customers and employees,“ says Ralf Dahmer, CEO of JET-Group.

Ralf Dahmer will head the industrial flat roof segment in the VELUX Group’s commercial division.

The VELUX Group announced on October 11 its agreement to acquire JET-Group from Egeria, an independent Dutch investment company. The agreement was subject to approval by competition authorities in Germany and Austria.

The VELUX Group has been the market leader in the residential market for roof windows for more than 75 years. The VELUX Group’s first step into the commercial (non-residential) market was in 2012, when it launched VELUX Modular Skylights (VMS). Today, the strategy is to develop a leading position in this business area through organic growth and acquisitions.
