Ramboll acquires three Finnish firms to boost its health and safety offering

3 November 2017 | By GCR Staff 0 Comments

Danish engineering group Ramboll has bought three Finnish firms to strengthen its position in the country.

Two of the acquisitions, TPA Andersson and Suomen Sisäilmakeskus, offer consultancy services related to indoor air quality. Ramboll says the demand for consultancy services in the air quality sector will grow, enabling it to provide cleanliness planning and management services to clients such as hospitals.

The third acquisition is ENW Management, a Finnish health and safety service provider. This deal will give Ramboll a cloud-based platform called Lawly through which companies can handle their regulatory obligations.  

Ramboll says in a statement: “The operations of small and large companies alike extend nowadays beyond borders of individual countries and the volume of regulatory obligations imposed by environmental and occupational health and safety requirements is on the increase.”

The acquisitions will bring more than 40 experts to Ramboll, and the company’s employee headcount in Finland will go up to 2,300.

Kari Onniselkä, Ramboll country director for Finland, said: “Growth and renewal play a significant role in our strategy. These acquisitions enhance our expertise and reinforce our foothold in the new markets in Finland.

“We want to play an active role in offering user-oriented and more efficient services to benefit our clients and society as a whole. Lawly will expand our digital service offering in the environmental and health business sector.”
