Lassila & Tikanoja plc has on 3 January 2017 acquired the business operations of Pieksämäki-based refuse collection firm Pieksämäen Keräys Oy. The acquisition consists of transfer of waste management and recycling business operations. Pieksämäen Keräys Oy’s annual turnover is approximately EUR 200,000. 

The acquisition is part of L&T’s strategic geographical expansion and more comprehensive coverage in the Southern Savonia region. 

“Pieksämäen Keräys is an excellently handled company with a strong tradition, having been operating in Pieksamäki for 28 years. L&T wants to reinforce our current business operations in the Pieksamäki business area. In addition to a wide variety of services for the transportation sector, we also want to offer services in recycling and environmental services relating to utilisation of raw materials. This deal is a good continuation of our purchase last year of another Pieksamäki-based firm, JPM Transport Services”, says Petri Salermo, Vice President of Environmental Services at L&T. 

“It has been a pleasure to serve the residents of but now it’s time for retirement.  The sale of our business operations will not bring any major changes to customers. Work and collections will continue as normal. L&T is a reliable partner, and our customers will benefit from a broader range of services,” says Pauli Tuominen of Pieksämäen Keräys Oy.

The one employee of the company will be transferring to L&T as part of the deal.
