In 2005 EQT III acquired ISS Health Care, a Swedish Health Care company, and Carepartner, a leading Nordic senior care operator, to create Aleris AB.

From being a company with its main operations in Sweden, Aleris has both through organic development and through strategic focus on add-on acquisitions, become a true pan-Scandinavian company during the ownership of EQT, and achieved leadership positions in the Health Care markets in which it operates. During ownership sales more than doubled and operating profit almost tripled.
