We believe that the need for change as well as the pace of consolidation development will continue to grow both in Finland and internationally”, says CEO Jorma Maaninka at Valve Group Oy.
”We share the same values, mindset, and strategic goal for long-term growth acceleration with Arvo Sijoitusosuuskunta cooperative.
