The total turnover of the companies last year amounted to just over 50 million euros, the company employs about 300 people. Currently, the activities of the traded companies remain unchanged.

The merger will create four clear business lines for Festivo to protect the food refrigeration chain: home cooling, commercial cooling, medical and laboratory cooling, and custom cooling. The company has three highly qualified production facilities.

"We realized that the merger would bring synergistic benefits, which we believe will significantly improve the financial performance and competitiveness of the company," Korpela says.
