For Layer Group, the acquisition of Kaukomaalaus Oy and establishment in Finland represents a milestone and the start of growth beyond Sweden’s borders. With Kaukomaalaus in the group, Layer will have a strong foothold in the Finnish market right from the start and aim to bring other successful entrepreneurs within Finland into the group to become market leaders in the longer term.
“We are extremely proud that Kaukomaalaus Oy has chosen to join Layer Group and that the vendors want to develop the Finnish surface services market together with us, as well as becoming part owners of Layer Group as part of the deal! Kauko Turunen and the Kaukomaalaus team have created a secure, high-quality company and we are pleased that Jari Mikkonen will bring his experience and confidence in the company as he takes over as CEO. This creates a seamless transition for the organisation, with the added value of Kauko Turunen continuing in the company as a mentor and advisor. We see great potential in Finland, and together with Kaukomaalaus we have made a great start,” – says John Strand, CEO of Layer Group
“We are pleased for the opportunity to be the first Finnish company to become part of Layer Group. Together with our skilled and engaged employees, trustworthy partners, and Scandinavian know-how, we can continue to develop and grow our business and ensure that “quality has its makers”, as our motto goes” – says Kauko Turunen, founder of Kaukomaalaus Oy.
