Granlund will expand its operations in Sweden and has carried out a transaction with Stockholm-based technical design company ECO Konsult i Stockholm AB. The aim is to strengthen Granlund’s company network in the building services sector in Sweden.

Granlund entered the Swedish market two years ago by opening a Granlund office focusing on data centre design in Lidköping. The transaction with ECO Konsult strengthens Granlund’s resources in Sweden and creates a great basis for further development.

“We are expanding in Sweden on the same principle as in Finland, that is, on the partner model. In practice, we combine the resources of a large company with the agile service of a small company. Following the acquisition from ECO Konsult, we will be able to expand our customer interface in Sweden significantly”, says Pekka Metsi, CEO of Granlund.

The focus of the business is on core areas similar to those in Finland. “The Swedish market also emphasises the promotion of energy efficiency and sustainable development, responsibility and improving the productivity of the sector through the use of data as spearheads. ECO is a great partner for us to promote these issues,” Metsi adds.

The transaction with Granlund Group facilitates expansion of the service offering

ECO Konsult i Stockholm AB is a technical design company founded in 2011 with 23 employees, specializing in electrical design, tele and security design, lighting design and measurements. Energy efficiency is a key objective in all services.

“The transaction with Granlund Group facilitates a significant expansion of our service offering in the local property market. We fully subscribe to Granlund’s core objectives of improving the sector’s productivity, using data and efficient energy solutions. Granlund, on the other hand, will gain a strong local customer base and a foothold to expand its operations,” Jan Strömberg, Managing Director of ECO Konsult, comments on the transaction. 

The name of the company ECO Konsult i Stockholm AB will change into Granlund Stockholm AB and it will become a subsidiary of Granlund. The personnel will continue in the company as existing employees.
