EMC Talotekniikka Oy is increasing and reinforcing its expertise in energy efficiency technologies for  buildings by  acquiring Arealtec Oy.

Arealtec Oy will continue operating as an independent enterprise under Managing Director Kari Kumpulainen, a founder-proprietor of the company. The other previous owners, Vesa KallinenJarkko Turunen, Jari Husu, Timo Jääskeläinen and Timo Ruoho, and the rest of the company’s staff will continue working for the company as before.

Kari Kumpulainen believes that EMC Talotekniikka Oy will provide new and stimulating business opportunities for Arealtec Oy to respond to the growing need of building owners to implement challenging comprehensive energy management and conservation projects:

“Now we are getting expertise for these projects, especially for technical solutions and pricing in other fields of building technology. We shall continue to assist our current customers with the same reliable quality and service-mindedness as we have always done.”

Vesa Kallinen says that collaboration with EMC Talotekniikka will provide fresh challenges for Arealtec Oy and for its capable and motivated staff.

“Once this collaboration gets going, there will be scope for growth in other branches of building technology that can benefit from the automation that is the core competence of Arealtec Oy. And naturally the benefit will be mutual.”

EMC Talotekniikka Oy Managing Director Kimmo Liukkonen feels that this is a vital business acquisition, because the importance of automation for controlling, monitoring and using buildings is growing all the time due to stricter energy  requirements.

“This deal brings more expertise into our group, enabling us to provide our customers with an even greater range of technical and financial know-how.”
