All operations of Forssén & Salomaa will be acquired by Papula-Nevinpat. Forssén & Salomaa will continue its business operations under the name of Forssén & Salomaa at least until the end of 2011.

“The legislative changes will make competition tighter in Finland. The company acquisition strengthens our position, also on international markets”, says Mr Markku Simmelvuo, Papula-Nevinpat’s Managing Director.
