HELMOND, THE NETHERLANDS -- Q.P.I. Group Holding has acquired printed circuit board distributor Macer Sweden for an undisclosed amount.

Macer performs bare board distribution, CAM and design engineering to Scandinavia and the Baltic states. It will continue to operate under the name Macer Sweden AB, member of the Q.P.I. Group.

“Macer is a company that has many similarities with the Q.P.I. Group," said Arjan Warnaar, CEO and owner of Q.P.I. "Q.P.I. is very impressed with the level of technical know-how in the company, particularly when it comes to CAM engineering. Geographically speaking, Macer is active in an area where the Q.P.I. Group was not yet active and, as such, Macer fits perfectly within the Q.P.I. Group. Both companies can benefit from this scaling up.”

“Macer has been successful since its foundation in 2008. We were looking for a partner to enable further growth and to strengthen the company’s base," Macer founder Mattias Andersson said. "In the Q.P.I. Group we have found a partner that will enable us to strengthen our base considerably. This strong base is essential to clients who want to do business with Macer.”

Privately held Quality Products International (Q.P.I.) was founded in 1988 by Herman Gosefoort and John De Gruyte.

The bare board distribution market has seen several changes in 2012, as NCAB acquired PD Circuits, Bare Board Group purchased the PCB fabrication operations of Hunter Technology, and various smaller distys left the scene.
