Kymsol is here – a new name for the experienced ISS specialist
Last year, Kymppi Group purchased all shares in Solid Vedlikehold, a family-owned industrial and offshore surface treatment specialist based in Norway. Following the merger, a new name was needed to bring the two businesses together and to reflect the international brand of Scandinavia’s leading industrial insulation and maintenance, surface treatment and scaffolding services provider. The choice of name reflects Kymppi Group’s commitment to honouring the two companies’ long-standing client relationships and ongoing service agreements. Ari Jokelainen, Chairman of the Board commented, “This acquisition marks the merger of two traditional, family-run businesses. As we move forward, our customers will benefit from our joint service offering and solid technical expertise. These are now offered under one shared brand, and we are better placed than ever before to serve our customers globally.”
Kymsol is the first company to offer a full range of insulation, scaffolding and surface treatment (ISS) services in Finland. With all three services offered by a single provider, customers stand to save time and resources while also benefitting the environment, whether they’re planning a new project or looking forward to a refurbishment. The recent changes also reflect Kymsol’s commitment to remaining an active participant in the climate debate. Jussi Yli-Niemi, Kymsol CEO, said: “Kymsol is a progressive and forward-looking business. Agility is one of our key strengths and means that we are ideally placed to respond flexibly to our customers’ needs, drawing on our comprehensive ISS service package, advanced technical solutions and the talent and expertise of our staff.
Kymsol is now one company, as reflected by our new name and brand identity. These changes send out a positive message to our customers and staff and highlight our international focus. In addition to Scandinavia and Europe, Kymsol is active in high growth markets across South America, notably Chile and Uruguay.
With nearly 50 years of experience, Kymsol is one of the leading ISS specialists in the Nordics. Today, we have a turnover of some EUR 60 million and employ more than 800 people. Our headquarters is located in Oulu Finland, and we also have offices in Norway and Chile.
