1.12.2020

Over the last four years Vaihtolavacom has grown into a major environmental service company. 

”Vaihtolavacom revenues and profitability multiplied during our ownership tenure. The company has developed from a transportation company into a significant and efficient partner in waste logistics services, enabling customers to operate responsibly with Vaihtolavacoms digital tracking system. We are very pleased to have found Sortera to support the company’s nationwide expansion in Finland”, says Pasi Lehtinen, the managing director at Korona Invest. 

Management and key personnel have done an excellent job increasing the performance of acquired businesses, coordinating cultures, as well as developing the digital services and customer ESG reporting. The advanced digital ERP has enabled Lean management and growth has not slowed the company’s decision-making.

Vaihtolavacom Group CEO, Hannu Poutiainen, sees Sortera enabling the continued growth of the company and the utilization of best practices between countries for the benefit of the customers. “Four years ago, together with Korona we set out to grow the company systematically to a larger size and towards environmental services. We have been very pleased with Korona’s ability to make decisions flexibly and quickly to deliver growth. With Sortera we will have an excellent partner to continue our expansion according to plan, says Hannu Poutiainen.
