Leading electronics and tech supplier

ELFA markets, sells and distributes electronic components and other technical products to primarily business customers in northern Europe.

Headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden and serving over 51,000 customers and 130,000 catalogues distributed annually, ELFA is a leading distributor in the Nordic countries, Poland, the Baltic countries and Russia.

Elfa was acquired by the IK 2004 Fund in August 2006, and then sold on to Daetwyler in April 2008.
