Leading producer of prefabricated houses
At the time of exiting, Prevesta was one of the leading prefabricated house manufacturers in Sweden. Since inception in 1927 the company, with its strong brands Myresjöhus and SmålandsVillan, delivered more than 80,000 houses.
Today Myresjöhus and SmålandsVillan are part of Block Watne Group that is owned by Norwegian BWG Homes that also owns Hetlandhus and Kärnhem. BWG Homes is headquartered in Oslo, Norway.
The IK 2004 Fund acquired Prevesta from Skanska in March 2005. IK’s stake was then sold to Block Watne Group in May 2007.
