Ajansähkö, founded in 1987, is one of the biggest local electricity and telecommunications contractors in Central Finland. The company’s services also include security technology and automation, which enables special services such as lighting control for demanding properties. Ajansähkö works for the region’s construction companies and property owners, and they are especially known for extensive school and hospital projects. Ajansähkö’s turnover was EUR 6.3 million in 2020 and the company employs 30 professionals in Jyväskylä.

Interesting real estate projects starting up in the Jyväskylä region
