Leading Scandinavian producer of quality kitchens

Headquartered in Holstebro, Denmark, TCM Group develops, produces and sells quality kitchens. The Group has a broad and innovative range of kitchens, selling its products under the well-known brands Svane, Tvis and Modulia.

TCM’s core market is Denmark with an increasing focus on the rest of the Nordic region, with an expanding network of stores across Denmark and Norway. TCM has 330 total employees, and production facilities in Tvis and Horsens.

The IK SC I Fund acquired a 47% stake in TCM in March 2016 from Axcel, with remaining shares held by management and co-investors. IK exited in December 2017, when TCM was listed on the Copenhagen Stock Exchange.

  • Leverage the strong brands to achieve organic growth in Denmark and Norway;
  • Gain selected efficiency improvements within manufacturing and sourcing; and
  • Achieve market consolidation through potential add-on acquisitions and new store establishment.
