Acquisition between Greenfield and Granlund Consulting
Joint business operations will commence immediately in the Finnish and UK markets
Granlund Consulting acquired the majority of the shares in Greenfield Nordic, based in the UK, after purchasing its parent company Greenfield Consulting on 1 February 2018.
Granlund Consulting offers comprehensive property management consulting services, including property asset management, cost control, energy and environmental consulting as well as advisory services. Granlund Consulting is part of Granlund Group, with more than 800 specialists.
“Granlund represents a modern company with a clarity of purpose, a constant striving for excellence and a genuine focus on sustainable growth in its broadest sense. I eagerly look forward to expanding horizons in the UK, bringing Nordic know-how to the market and working with some great people”, says Robert Clark, Managing Director at Greenfield Nordic Ltd.
Joint business operations will commence immediately after the acquisition in the Finnish and UK markets. Miia Anttila, CEO of Granlund Consulting, brings up Greenfield’s strong international networks and years of experience in international consulting. ”Greenfield supports our internationalisation aims in Europe. It has been obvious from the very beginning of the negotiations that the synergy benefits of our cooperation are apparent. We are very like-minded companies and will start the year 2018 with enthusiasm,” she comments.
The acquisition of Greenfield will strengthen Granlund’s regional energy consulting team and objectives of applying Finnish energy expertise to international markets. “Granlund has conventionally approached changing energy networks and demand flexibility solutions from the perspective of buildings. With the acquisition, strong expertise in district heating and district cooling networks will be added to our team. In the future, we can provide our customers with even more extensive opportunities for utilising regional energy solutions,” says Ville Reinikainen, Director, Energy at Granlund Consulting.
”Decentralised energy production, bidirectional energy networks, new energy production technologies and demand flexibility provide new opportunities in the changing heating and cooling market. Combining our expertise provides us with excellent preconditions for being a trailblazer and leading expert in this market,” comments Jussi-Pekka Kuivala, Managing Director at Greenfield Consulting.
In the acquisition, Greenfield Consulting’s employees were transferred to Granlund Consulting. Robert Clark will continue as Greenfield Nordic’s CEO and the business and projects of the company will continue as previously, only with wider resources. Managing Director of Greenfield Consulting, Jussi-Pekka Kuivala will start at Granlund as head of the Heat and Cooling Network Services business. Greenfield’s founder Herkko Lehdonvirta will retire from daily business, but will support the business development at Greenfield Nordic’s board of directors.
