European market leader in pre-cast concrete

Consolis (formerly Bonna Sabla) is the largest precast concrete based solution provider and manufacturer of structural prefabricated concrete elements in Europe. The companies belonging to Consolis Group have over 100 production plants in 20 countries with leading positions in their respective markets.

Consolis Group is headquartered in Brussels, Belgium. In October 2005 Bonna Sabla was acquired by the IK 2004 Fund, in addition to the former Consolis, which was acquired from IK 1994. The new Consolis was formed by combining Consolis Oy Ab and French Bonna Sabla in November 2005. It was then sold to LBO France in March 2007.

Our Value Creation Strategy

During our ownership, we worked alongside the management team to:

  • Improve profitability in mature markets, by systematic development of new markets for pre-cast concrete expansion overseas, particularly in the Mediterranean, Eastern Europe, Indonesia and the Indochinese peninsula.
