The market for outsourcing of maintenance services picked up, and we signed outsourcing agreements for many new sites.
We provide industrial services mainly in Finland and Sweden. Our services include project deliveries of technical systems and processes for industry, as well as their service and maintenance. We also deliver prefabricates worldwide.
Highlights of 2013
In recent years, industrial investments have decreased and seasonal fluctuations of demand have increased. Tight competition continued in the market in 2013, particularly in project deliveries.
- We expanded our ServiFlex service range. Our customers can now include approximately 50 different industrial services in one service agreement.
- We invested in occupational safety: occupational safety observation, identification of risks and elimination of dangerous working methods.
- The organisation of Industrial Services changed as of the beginning of 2014: in Sweden, mechanical industrial installation and maintenance were included as part of the new company Caverion Industria Sverige AB. Electric automation services for industry were included as part of Caverion Finland. This unifies our service structure in Finland and Sweden and strengthens Caverion’s services for industry in Sweden.
