Message from the CEO

Honoured customer, valued partner,

In every industry, one operator is bound to rise up and change the industry’s established practices. Our goal is to become the reformer of the industrial insulation and scaffolding service sector.

We have built Finland’s largest company in the industry. The size of our company is not our most important achievement, but it enables us to harness our extensive experience capability to develop and resources to reach our goals.

From our customers’ perspective, the most significant development concerns digital services. Our digital site management solutions allow our customers to monitor their construction sites more closely and increase efficiency in an innovative way. And this is only the beginning of our digital journey.

We also offer our customers unique flexibility. We tailor contracts to meet the needs of each customer to ensure the best possible cooperation.

Our extensive resources and large capacity guarantee that we can adapt to different situations in an agile way. Saimaa Group employs approximately 600 experts, and our total installation capacity is 1,100 professionals, including the resources of our network. We are constantly investing in growing our scaffolding capacity.

Currently, our stock includes approximately 1.5 million scaffolding components. Our customers can utilize all group resources where they are needed the most.

When changing the industry, small development steps are just as important as great leaps. We are taking small steps forward by implementing our five subsidiaries’ best practices across the Group. This is reflected in, for example, the improvement of occupational safety. As a labour-intensive company, we report more than 3,000 safety observations every year. These observations help us to analyse and improve our practices. Digital tools play a key role in this as well.

Our continuous development work has also resulted in numerous awards and recognitions from our customer companies. One of our latest achievements regarding our safety efforts was the third victory in the service providers’ safety competition awarded by our customer.

In summer 2021, we took a significant leap forward in extending our customer service by acquiring PEPT Oy Ab. Now, we can serve our Nordic customers locally in Sweden, where PEPT operates in three locations.

Saimaa Group also offers interesting opportunities to its personnel. We strive to create a safe working environment and enable diverse career paths that suit one’s individual skills and needs. The new and innovative way of working improves both customer and employee well-being. We believe that a bold and innovative company remains strong in continuously increasing competition.
