The digitalisation and security expert organisation Loihde is simplifying its group structure to promote the offering of even more extensive service packages to its customers and to make internal operations more efficient.
“In the last couple of years, we have cooperated more and more closely, both within our businesses and on a group level. Together we can offer our customers very extensive services, and our network model with its different companies enables the sharp positioning of each company. The mergers that take place now simplify and crystallise our operations by reducing overlapping functions. However, the network model continues to be our central idea, and we are always developing it further”, says Samu Konttinen, CEO of the Loihde Group.
“Loihde’s services focus on enabling business continuity for our customers by ensuring that there are adequate digital capabilities to support business operations and that security has been comprehensively taken care of”, Samu Konttinen describes.
Comprehensive security seamlessly from one company
In our security business, all other companies of the business area will merge with Loihde Trust Ltd at the turn of the year. The companies in question are Loihde Trust Spellpoint Ltd that provides IAM solutions, Loihde Trust Tansec Ltd that provides alarm transmission services, Turvakolmio Group Oy that provides security technology and locking services and its subsidiary Turvakolmio Recycling Oy that provides digital solutions for the circular economy.
“The companies have cooperated up to now as well, and a deepened cooperation is a natural step for us, through which we are able to offer customers comprehensive security solutions more seamlessly than ever before, in accordance with our One Security concept”, says Loihde Trust Ltd’s Managing Director Marko Järvinen.
Loihde Advisory and Loihde Analytics join forces
In the digital development business, Loihde Advisory Ltd that provides digital business strategy and change management consulting and Loihde Analytics Ltd that is an expert on business intelligence and analytics solutions will merge. More than 200 experts in data, digitalisation and AI work for the companies in Finland and Sweden. Digital service provider Loihde Factor Ltd remains a separate company, but the companies continue to cooperate closely in the future.
The person in charge of the new business unit is Loihde Advisory’s current Managing Director Tomi Bergman.
“It is our goal to be our customers’ best partner when it comes to enabling business continuity. This means having a strong offering in one place in both data and digital service development, everything from strategy clarification to change management, design, implementation and continuous services”, says Tomi Bergman.
Loihde Advisory and Loihde Analytics will join forces gradually. During the remainder of the year, there will be a transfer to joint operations, and the legal merger will take place in the spring of 2023. The search for a new name is on. “The name Loihde was the result of an internal naming contest, and we will use the creativeness of our employees this time as well”, says Tomi Bergman.
