KFS Finland strengthens its position with a new acquisition
KFS, the joint venture company between Keller PLC and Kreate Oy in Finland, has acquired the drilled piling specialist, Sotkamon Porapaalu Oy.
“Integrating Sotkamon in our business will enable us to offer a broader range of solutions to our customers,” says Teuvo Kulmala, Managing Director, KFS. “With our design input and the financial strength of our shareholders, it means we can, more than ever, meet the demands of the largest and most technically-complex projects.”
For the last twenty years’ Sotkamon has built an enviable track record in piling, and in large diameter ‘down-the-hole hammer’ (DTHH) drilling in particular, building a reputation for high quality and reliable execution. The company has been particularly active in developing innovative drilling methods and has several associated patents.
KFS has been growing steadily over the last five years and is now a recognised force in geotechnical contracting in the Nordic region.
