QMG acquires Espit and grows in Southeast Finland

QMG acquires Espit, a versatile heating and sanitation expert that operates in Puumala, Lappeenranta and Imatra region.

Established in 2006, Espit provides a range of services in heating and sanitation contracting and maintenance in Southeastern Finland. Additionally, they have a well-stocked appliances shop in Puumala. Espit’s turnover in 2022 is approximately 3,5 million euros, and the company employs 15 professionals.

– Espit is growing systematically, and its people are known as skillful and service-minded experts, so we are very glad to welcome them to QMG. This acquisition again extends our coverage and service offering in Finland, states QMG’s Central Finland Area Director Mikko Sahikallio.

In addition to Espit, QMG has three companies in Southeastern Finland – JP Yhtiöt (heating and sanitation) and Mikkelin Sähköasennus (electrical installations) in Mikkeli as well as Quattroservices Kaakkois-Suomi (electrical installations) in Lappeenranta. Mikko Sahikallio believes the companies will achieve competitive edge through cooperation.

– Espit and the three previous companies will now evaluate cooperation opportunities for projects, where they can combine their offerings. The companies do not overlap geographically, Mikko Sahikallio says.

– Espit has always had a strong entrepreneurial spirit, and we will remain the same. QMG’s emphasis on local decision-making and responsibility in projects suits us perfectly. With the support of the group, we will target growth and larger projects in the region. I can see good opportunities in combining our offerings in heating, sanitation, ventilation and electrical contracting. Technical property services also represent a growth sector for us, Espit’s Managing Director Esa Pitkonen asserts.

The acquisition has no effect on personnel or customer contracts. Esa Pitkonen will continue as Managing Director and he will join the ownership programme of QMG’s parent company Nimlas Group.
