The Kiwa building services business to be acquired supports Caverion's sustainable growth strategy and will expand our managed services offering for our customers nationwide. I am looking forward to warmly welcoming the new Caverion employees to our team," says Ville Tamminen, Head of Finland and Baltics division at Caverion.
