Habeo Group emerges as a new significant provider of technical building services

Habeo Group Oy (Habeo) is a new provider of technical building services, offering smaller renovation and restoration jobs in addition to technical building services. The Group was established when eight successful, regionally operating companies joined Habeo. At the initial stage, the Group will be comprised of Afire Oy, ESP Group, HSK Sähkö Oy, Neloset Group, Respect Project Oy, SFT Finntekniikka Oy, Sähkö Oy Turku, and Vaasan Kylmäkone Oy. The Group operates nationwide in Finland.

The revenue of the new Group is approximately EUR 120 million in total (pro forma 2021), and the Group employs some 600 technical building services professionals. Kari Kohvakka (previous employers include Sumitomo SHI FW, Amec Foster Wheeler and Maintpartner Oy) acts as the CEO and Antti Heinola (previous employers include Kreate Group Plc, Caverion Corporation ja YIT Corporation) as the CFO of the Group’s parent company Habeo Group Oy. The Chairman of Habeo Group’s Board of Directors is Kari Kauniskangas and the Board members are Mikael Aro, Sara Damberg and Per Frankling. The establishment and financing of the new Group is supported by the international private equity firm Triton.

“Habeo Group comprises strong, regionally operating companies, which together serve the whole of Finland. We are a group of top experts who provide customers with all the technical building services and solutions they need. The core of our strategy is formed by strong local expertise and holistic technical building services knowhow close to the client. Additionally, the financial support and experience in corporate transactions provided by our owner promote the implementation of our growth strategy. With Habeo Group’s joint group functions, we also gain synergies in internal functions such as the development of financial administration, procurement, work safety and personnel,” says Kari Kohvakka, CEO of Habeo Group Oy.

Habeo Group’s services cover the following areas: heating, plumbing and sewerage, ventilation and air conditioning, electrical works, cooling and refrigeration, fire safety and automation. In addition, the company carries out smaller renovation and repair jobs that have technical building services in a key role. The foundation of the Group’s operations is formed by the companies’ shared values: entrepreneurial spirit, focus on solutions, collaboration and caring. Working at Habeo means caring not only about real estate, but about people as well. The companies will continue their local, entrepreneurially oriented operations and serve their customers under their current brands.
