Eiffage expands in the Netherlands with two acquisitions

French civil engineer Eiffiage has expanded its presence in the Netherlands by acquiring majority stakes in two Dutch companies.

Kropman, the Dutch subsidiary of Eiffage Énergie Systèmes, has acquired 70% of Harwig, a 190-employee company that designs and manufactures electrical installations. Last year, Harwig generated €26.7m in revenue and Kropman is betting that its investment will bolster its position in the electrical and fire safety market.

The company also purchased a 65% stake in Eltra, which designs and makes automation systems and electric controls. Eltra has 60 employees and generated €11.4m of revenue in 2021.

With Eltra’s acquisition, Eiffage Énergie Systèmes hopes to bring its outsourced manufacture of technology systems in-house.
