Raksystems boosts its design expertise by acquiring Insinööritoimisto R J Heiskanen Oy
Raksystems Insinööritoimisto Oy, one of Finland’s largest real estate industry expert companies, is improving its design expertise by acquiring engineering office Insinööritoimisto R J Heiskanen Oy. Established in 1969, Insinööritoimisto R J Heiskanen Oy is currently one of Finland’s best known and most valued structural engineering firms.
The acquisition supports Raksystems’ strategy by growing its clientele and engineering service portfolio, especially in Uusimaa and other parts of southern Finland. R J Heiskanen has valuable, extensive expertise in the structural engineering of commercial and service properties, for example.
“The acquisition further boosts the investments Raksystems Insinööritoimisto Oy has made in the past few years to becoming a better known and more attractive company providing services for large properties throughout their lifecycle. The acquisition is a natural continuum of the acquisition of AEC Projektinjohto Oy two years ago. The several decades of experience, extensive clientele and recognition of R J Heiskanen, in particular, will excellently assist Raksystems in its path towards increased engineering service expertise,” says Marko Malmivaara, the Managing Director of Raksystems Insinööritoimisto Oy.
R J Heiskanen will continue its operations as part of Raksystems. Relationships with the current customers will not change. Marko Malmivaara will be the company’s new Managing Director.
“Naturally, selling a company is always sad, but this is the right decision from the strategic viewpoint. I’m glad that our buyer and cooperation partner is Raksystems, a company operating in the whole of Finland. The company’s reputation as a reliable condition inspector and the increased demand for engineering services due to the company’s huge growth in the past few years will allow us to continue and even improve our operations,” says Kari Toitturi, the Managing Director of Insinööritoimisto R J Heiskanen Oy.
