Lindström strengthens its presence in the UK
Lindström has acquired United Services, in a move which doubles the Finnish textile service company’s customer base in the UK.
After the acquisition, Lindstöm is launching new mat and hygiene services.
“Our strategy is to reach a significant position in the British market by 2020, and this acquisition is a great step forward towards this goal,” says company CEO Juha Laurio.
This is the second acquisition of its kind in the past six months for the company. Lindström bought the UK-based Enviro Wipes, an industrial towel service company, in September last year.
An increasing part of Lindström’s turnover is coming from international operations. The company employs more than 3 000 people across Europe and Asia. Its 2015 net sales were 302 million euros.
