Prosero acquires Tele-Projekti Oy and THV Tele – ja Hälytysvalvonta Oy in Finland
Prosero accelerates its expansion in Finland and creates a leading position in the Turku region through the latest acquisitions of Tele-Projekti Oy (“Tele-Projekti”) and THV Tele – ja Hälytysvalvonta Oy (“THV”). The companies run one of the largest alarm center operations in the Southwest, alongside providing a high-end security solutions offering.
Tele-Projekti was originally founded in 1975 by the Luoto and Packalen families and started out by providing TV – antennas and loudspeaker systems. In the 80s, the company began focusing on security and quickly became a market leader within high-end video surveillance. Subsequently, the company has broadened its offering to also include fire alarms, intruder alarms, access control and door phones. In 2000, the leadership was handed over to the next generation entrepreneurs Kimmo Luoto, Mika Packalen, and Tiina Luoto, who have been successfully running the company since. In 2003 they founded THV, which has become a leading independent alarm center with a strong expertise in alarm surveillance. Key services include intruder alarm monitoring, fire alarm transmission services, alarm indications based on video surveillance analytics, security systems administration services and call center services.
The companies have demonstrated strong bottom line performance, and over the years they have established a leading market position with strong reputation and brand recognition. Sales is primarily driven by a mix of installation projects and aftermarket maintenance, combined with contracted and recurring sales from the alarm center, which monitors alarms for thousands of customers across Finland. During the last fiscal year, the company delivered sales of close to ~6 million euros with 35 employees, operating from the company headquarters in Turku.
“We look forward to the journey that lies ahead of us and together with Prosero, we are in better position to meet future challenges. We see a lot of opportunities, especially by cooperating with other Prosero companies in Finland to expand and to further strengthen the ability to service our customers. Throughout our history, a focus on customer service has been a cornerstone to our success and is part of our identity. By joining forces with Prosero, we make sure we keep the promise to our customers to always deliver the best possible solutions and service”, says Kimmo Luoto from Tele-Projekti and THV.
”Tele-Projekti and THV have demonstrated an impressive track-record and created a leading position in the Turku region, where we have not previously had a local presence. The companies offer a unique value proposition, and their strong expertise and complementary offering will be a great addition to Prosero, and we see great growth potential to leverage our existing presence in other regions”, says Sebastian Ryman at Prosero.
