We want to be involved in this development and contribute our expertise. Our strength lies in in-depth process knowledge and diverse experience in implementing various projects of all types and sizes,” states the newly appointed Business Unit Director, Sami Ström.

He further elaborates that Fimpec is capable of offering a wide range of services to the industry, starting from conceptual and feasibility studies to detail engineering as well as construction management and supervision services during project execution. The expertise of the new business unit is complemented extensively by the services of Fimpec Engineering and Fimpec PMO.

Fimpec already possesses expertise and experience related to the battery value chain and the mining industry. This expertise has been accumulated through engineering and project management projects in the mining industry. Several experts of the topic joined Fimpec as a result of the Chemitec acquisition in 2022.

“In addition, we have started recruitment, and we also have the expertise of our extensive network of partners. Our ambition is to grow strongly and quickly because the demand for services in this area is high, and we are able to meet it,” states Ström.
