Fimpec acquired, on 2 December 2022, the business of Espoo-based engineering company Chemitec Consulting Oy. The acquisition strengthens Fimpec’s internationalisation and expands the company’s expertise to minerals processing and battery chemicals.
Founded in 1986, Chemitec Consulting Oy is an engineering firm that provides consulting and engineering services and is specialised in chemical engineering, process design, energy industry, environmental technology and minerals processing. The company has seven employees, representing five nationalities.
“With this acquisition we reinforce Fimpec’s internationalisation. Chemitec is already a very international company, and the acquisition of its business is well-suited to our internationalisation strategy,” says Fimpec Group’s CEO, Jukka Nieminen.
“This is a highly skilled company that will also expand our operations into new areas. The acquisition brings us entirely new expertise and a foothold in minerals processing and chemical engineering, not to mention reinforces our already growing energy industry operations,” adds Fimpec’s Director of Development, Frans Jokinen.
All of Chemitec’s current customer commissions and contracts will continue as normal after the transaction is concluded. At the same time, Fimpec’s project management and engineering services will be available to Chemitec’s customers. As part of the business acquisition, six employees will transfer to Fimpec Node. Chemitec’s CEO Luis Rudolphy will be appointed to an executive position within Fimpec Group’s global sales.
“For us, this was about taking the next step. In joining Fimpec, we become part of a larger group, which opens the door to being involved in larger commissions where we can apply our expertise. This transaction offers a clear backing for international growth,” says Rudolphy.
