Finelcomp Oy will get new owners when CEO Esa Kivi and Juuri Partners Oy will acquire the company from its current owner Sievi Capital plc. “This is a unique way to become an entrepreneur and get strategic support for the development of operations,” explains Esa Kivi.
Finelcomp Ltd, a supplier of electricity distribution and telecommunication solutions, is the market leader in its field with about 50% market share. In addition, the company offers its customers high-quality contract manufacturing of sheet metal products.
“The funding of Juuri Partners is exactly the right kind of alternative for an operator like me. I become the majority shareholder of Finelcomp and at the same time get strategic support for the development of operations. We share a common vision for expanding the operations,” Esa Kivi adds.
“With this acquisition, Finland will gain a new significant entrepreneur. We shall work together to develop the company and to seek growth especially from exports – including from outside the Nordic countries,” explains partner Markus Einiö from Juuri Partners.
A unique new competitive edge from modularity
Finelcomp’s electrical distribution centres are widely used in small-scale construction, both in industrial and in the public sector. The company’s entire production is produced in Outokumpu, where the company is a major employer. The company’s net sales for 2017 were EUR 16.1 million.
Finelcomp is one of the few companies offering modular mechanical centre solutions. Customers can tailor a system from innovative parts, whether they need an office space or a data centre. The production is streamlined and comply with the Lean principles.
“Focusing on electric centres, especially low-voltage products, enables efficient production processes and, consequently, a cost-effective product portfolio,” Esa Kivi describes.
