Condair Group acquires Brautek Oy in Finland
Brautek becomes part of Condair Group as of January 1st, 2023, and will change its company name to Condair.
The acquisition of Brautek in Finland continues the consistent forward integration of Condair into promising geographic markets as well as the global strengthening of "Humidification and Evaporative Cooling", and also our service business.
Condair has been represented in the Finnish market for more than 40 years and since 1987 through Brautek and its owner Jarmo Päivärinta. Jarmo has significantly shaped and built up the humidification market in Finland with Brautek. The company is well positioned and obtained an important market share over the years in commercial humidification. Brautek employs a qualified and experienced sales and support team of four employees. We are very pleased that Jarmo and all his staff will continue with Condair Finland, and they are keen to grow and develop the market in Finland under the Condair banner.
Jarmo Päivärinta, new Managing Director for Condair Oy:
"After a long-term successful distribution relationship, we find the change through this acquisition inspiring, and we look forward to strengthen our position in the Finnish market in humidification and dehumidification. The Condair brand name is well known as a product line for the market, and we believe the company name Condair Oy will now consolidate the future."
The company is situated in Espoo, a suburb of Helsinki. Helsinki, as Finland’s largest city, offers international companies a highly competitive base to expand in a fast growing region.
Brautek will continue its operations under the legal name of Condair Oy as soon as the registration process is concluded.
Jarmo Päivärinta will be responsible for sales and service in Finland in the position of Managing Director of this country organization. Finland is part of the Sales Cluster Northern Europe. The post acquisition integration project, led by Rolf Haupt und Gitte Hagelskaer, has already started.
Oliver Zimmermann, CEO of the Condair Group:
"We are warmly welcoming Jarmo Päivärinta and his experienced team into the Condair Group. We see many opportunities to further expand the humidification market in Finland and promote applications such as evaporative humidification, direct room humidification, and dehumidification more intensively. With the acquisition of Brautek, we are well prepared for this."
We are welcoming Condair Finland and especially our new colleagues as new members of Condair Group.
