21 Grams acquires Europe Post ApS

12 maj 2016

21 Grams is excited to announce the acquisition of Europe Post, an international mail company based outside Copenhagen in Denmark. Europe Post was founded in 2010, by Lasse Agergaard, who now joins 21Grams as Vice President and responsible for the business area International Postage Solutions.

In 2015 Europe Post had a turnover of 32 MSEK.

21Grams has a complete offering of services including both software sortation technology and access to all major Nordic postal operators, enabling cost efficient mailings into the Nordic region.

The strong partner network of Europe Post will connect very well with 21Grams both for import and export opportunities, and with the merge 21Grams will be able to offer even more cost efficient services to both parties’ customers.

21 Grams sortation software platforms; PostSort, iSort and Winjet, will be configured to allow access and preparation of mail items automatically for all Europe Post destinations.

The new entity combined, 21 Grams and Europe Post, will have around 40 employees, and clients in 13 countries, becoming the biggest independent supplier of international mail in the Nordics.

“Together we can offer a broader portfolio of services to both our customers as well as increase our focus and investments in the international mail area.”
Stefan Blomqvist, CEO of 21Grams.

“21 Grams and Europe Post is a perfect match, as each company’s mission focuses on high-quality work, and viewing their relationships with clients as partnerships”
Lasse Agergaard, founder of Europe Post.

“The new 21Grams office outside Copenhagen also takes us closer to our local client base and partners in Denmark.”
Stefan Blomqvist, CEO of 21Grams.

Both companies will continue to trade as usual onwards from the existing company entities.
