TALDE PRIVATE EQUITY and OQUENDO CAPITAL has announced the sale of ROTECNA, the leading provider in Spain of equipment and solutions for the pig industry.

TALDE PRIVATE EQUITY and OQUENDO CAPITAL together with the founder, have sold Rotecna to SKIOLD Group after the successful development of the Company and the achievement of the Business Plan goals established. Rotecna’s management will continue to lead the Company, further building on its strong track record of growth through focus on customers and product innovation.

Founded in 1991 and headquartered in Agramunt, Spain, Rotecna specialises in the design, manufacture, and marketing of equipment and solutions for the pig farming industry. Enabled by its innovative DNA, the Company has played a central role in supporting the development of Spain’s pork production industry, which today has reached a globally leading status in terms of efficiency while holding the third largest pig population worldwide. Rotecna has grown consistently over the past 10 years from c. EUR 10m in revenue in 2010 to nearly EUR 50m in 2020, becoming the number one leading pig equipment provider in Spain while also entering new markets, for example Europe and Latin America.

SKIOLD, headquarted in Sæby, Denmark, has more than 140 years of experience providing seed-, feed-, and farm- equipment and solutions. SKIOLD covers the complete value chain from field to livestock, including  seed processing, grain handling, feed milling, and poultry-, cattle-, and pig farming equipment. Rotecna will become a part of SKIOLD’s existing pig business unit, nearly doubling its size in terms of revenue.

The combination of SKIOLD and Rotecna delivers clear strategic benefits to both companies, including a stronger global footprint and enhanced platform to grow in new markets, a broader product portfolio of leading technologies, and increased scale to support investments in R&D, including digital solutions. With this acquisition, SKIOLD group’s revenue is approaching EUR 200m.
