Safedo Plc becomes part of the Presto Group
Presto, the leading fire safety and safety training company in the Nordic countries, strengthens its presence in Finland. Safedo Plc becomes part of Presto. Following the acquisition, the service and product selection and the safety skills training that Presto provides to its customers will increase even further.
“Our aim is to strengthen the skills related to saving lives and safe fire protection. Safedo’s advanced first aid product selection and a strong position as an expert in the first aid preparedness of Finnish workplaces allow us to expand our range of services both in Finland and the other Nordic countries”, says Presto Group’s CEO Filip Bjurström.
Safedo is the leading supplier of defibrillators in Finland. The company has its own innovative first aid point and first aid kit production line and strong expertise in first aid and safety trainings. For the time being, Safedo will continue its operations as a separate company. The previous owners of the company, Marko and Minna Parviainen, will continue to work for the company, together with the current staff.
“The first aid preparedness of workplaces is among the key safety factors. Quick action, the right first aid equipment, and first aid skills save lives. It is great that this acquisition enables us to extend our selection. We want to make our trainings available to an increasing number of operators in order to enhance the safety of their workplaces”, says Head of Presto Finland Tero Roivainen.
“Together with Presto, we will be able to offer our customers a significantly wider range of safety trainings throughout Finland. Trainings are an essential part of the risk management of companies. The prevention of accidents enhances work safety and cuts costs. As a part of the Presto Group, we will have more resources to develop our extensive first aid product selection that is offered in the Finnish and the Nordic markets”, says Safedo Plc’s CEO Marko Parviainen.
