The acquisition is part of Rejlers' growth strategy and means that the company strengthens its position in the Trondheim region through a broader and more complete service offering to customers.

After the acquisition, the number of employees in Rejlers Norway amounts to more than 200, spread over 10 offices.
"We are very pleased with the acquisition of Karl Knudsen AS, a technology consultant with a good reputation that harmonizes perfectly with our strategy. It gives us a unique opportunity to strengthen our position in the region, not least in terms of the energy transition, which is a high priority for many of our customers and where we now, together with Karl Knudsen, become a stronger supplier," says Petter Arnesen, CEO of Rejlers Norway.
Karl Knudsen has extensive experience and high competence in construction engineering design and project management, including programming, investigations, planning and follow-up.
