“ABRA Kulelagersenteret is a perfect fit for Nomo, working as a highly skilled technical solution provider of premium bearing brands,” says Mattias Jaginder, CEO of Nomo. “This is totally in line with our strategy to further grow in Norway after the acquisition we did three years ago of Rotek in Ålesund”.

“I see many similarities in the way Nomo operates in the market and towards customers”, says Truls Kirknes, Managing Director of ABRA Kulelagersenteret. “Becoming a part of Nomo gives us the possibility to further develop the company and to take the next step when it comes to growth.”

Established in 1962, ABRA has a leading market position and is known as a multi-brand distributor with high availability and service levels. Its offering is primarily focused on rolling bearings along with seals and other related power transmission products. The company is based in the south of Trondheim and serves mainly the Norwegian MRO market, complementing Nomo’s presence in Norway.
