Voimatel Oy strengthens its role in professional telecommunication network services by acquiring the businesses of Boftel Oy in Finland, Estonia, Poland and Russia on 30.6.2016. As a result, Voimatel emerges as one of the most versatile service providers in its field. After the acquisition, Voimatel is capable of offering services that span the whole network lifecycle from network design to building, assembly, network optimization as well as operation & maintenance. By combining Boftel’s advanced services with its current offerings, Voimatel is able to fulfil the growing expectations set by telecommunication operators and equipment manufacturers alike. The combined capabilities also provide an excellent match with the rising demand for telecommunications services driven by industrial internet. The acquisition elevates Voimatel among the most progressive service providers for mission-critical networks, which is a natural step for the company that in recent years grown as one of the most prominent service partners for the Finnish telecommunication operators and electric power networks.
”As our customers expect from us continuously developing professional services, Boftel’s strong capabilities and customer experience provide an excellent match with our current know-how. Together we can deliver to our customers considerably more valuable combinations of services that extend over the entire network lifecycle.”, states Sami Huusko, the CEO of Voimatel Oy. “While data communication has become critical across industries with the emergence of industrial internet, only few companies consider managing their networks and connections as a core competence. Businesses that depend on mission-critical networks, such as electric power companies, can focus on their own core business when partnering with the new Voimatel.”
“As Boftel’s clientele and service offerings have expanded during the past years, we naturally aspire to offer even more valuable services in larger scale. The combined services of Boftel and Voimatel will deliver considerable added value to our customers and partners alike”, states Janne Vartiainen, the CEO of Boftel Finland.
