“Ovenia has excellent expertise and has established a leading market position in recent years. As we know the company very well for a long time, it will be natural for us as the new majority owner to continue the systematic development of the company together with the management. We believe Ovenia’s strategy, now as an independent company from both the property owners and the facility service providers, will realize Ovenia’s growth potential in full,” says Ilkka Hietala, partner at Vaaka Partners.

“The investment by Vaaka Partners is a demonstration of confidence in Ovenia and its skilled personnel. We will continue to operate in accordance with our strategy in close co-operation with the new owner. The advances in the company’s operations implemented in recent years have proven to be very well-suited to the markets’ needs. We will continue to actively develop the company in accordance with customers’ needs”, says Mika Valtonen, CEO at Ovenia Ltd.
