Movitek builds growth in Northern Finland – Jukka Kivimäki appointed Managing Director
Movitek, the Oulu-based subsidiary of building technology group QMG, has appointed Jukka Kivimäki as its Managing Director.
Jukka Kivimäki will start as Movitek’s Managing Director on 14 March 2022. He was Managing Director of QMG’s subsidiary Paikallis-Sähkö from 2006 to 2019 and is now returning to the Group’s duties after a sabbatical. Movitek provides building engineering contracting and maintenance services throughout Northern Finland. The company employs 50 people and had a turnover of approximately EUR 12 million in 2021.
In addition to Movitek, QMG has five other companies in Northern Finland – HVAC contractors Kokkolan LVIS-Palvelu and Tornion Ilmastointitekniikka, electrical contractors Paikallis-Sähkö and VirtaWorks, and security technology specialist Capcon.
– We see a lot of potential in Northern Finland in both contracting and services. I warmly welcome Jukka to QMG after his break. His extensive leadership experience in demanding roles and his diverse market knowledge will strengthen Movitek as we build growth, says Heikki Kiiskilä, Regional Director of QMG Northern Finland.
In the same context, Mikko Moilanen, who has long worked as Movitek’s Managing Director, will take over the role of Head of Account Management and Contract Accounting.
– We are delighted to have Jukka as our Managing Director. The cooperation with him has always been solid and fruitful. I now want to focus on customer work and projects myself, says Mikko Moilanen.
MOVITEK TO FOCUS ON BUILDING ENGINEERING CONTRACTING AND DIVESTING ITS CONSTRUCTION BUSINESS
Movitek has been part of the QMG Group since 2017 and is known for its expertise in retail, commercial and building engineering for demanding buildings. Currently, Movitek is contracting building technology for the new University Hospital in Oulu and several business centres across the province.
At the beginning of this year, Movitek renewed its strategy. The company will divest its construction business when the projects under construction are completed and will focus entirely on building technology contracting. Building engineering always accounted for the bulk of Movitek’s turnover.
– We are increasing our competitiveness for provincial projects and contracts by increasing our cooperation with Paikallis-Sähkö and Capcon, so that we are currently able to offer strong HVAC and security contracting. We are also evaluating opportunities to buy in areas such as refrigeration, says Jukka Kivimäki.
