Are Industrial Service, which also works towards the process industry has its strength in the areas of electrical and automation trades. This means that the acquisition strengthens us in that we are now a complete and multidisciplinary service provider in Finland, says Roy Vardheim, Vice President of business unit Finland, Denmark and Iceland in BIS Production Partner.
