Coor Service Management secures new assignment from Kemira in tender

Coor Service Management has signed a three-year agreement with Kemira to deliver FM services to Kemira in the Industry Park of Sweden industrial estate in Helsingborg. This agreement means Coor advancing its positioning in production services and maintenance, as well as its presence in southern Sweden.

Kemira Kemi has its head office and production in Helsingborg. The company manufactures chemical products for the paper and pulp industries, and for water treatment. Kemira Kemi is part of the global Kemira Oyj group.

Coor was successful in a competitive tender, securing a three-year contract. This agreement involves Coor delivering FM services to Kemira in the Industry Park of Sweden industrial estate in Helsingborg. The agreement has a total value of some SEK 500 m.

"We're really proud and pleased to be entrusted by Kemira," commented Staffan Ebenfelt, President of Coor Service Management in Sweden, "this new assignment means Coor continuing to grow in the production services and maintenance segments, which are a priority for Coor, and also increases our presence in southern Sweden."

Until now, Kemira has run FM operations through a wholly owned subsidiary, Industry Park of Sweden AB (IPOS), which Coor is acquiring from Kemira. IPOS has some 130 employees, who will transfer to Coor in the acquisition.

"This divestment of our FM operation is part of a long-term plan and a natural consequence of an external provider becoming active in the industrial estate," responded Lennart Albertsson, President of Kemira Kemi, "with Coor, Kemira gains a complete provider, with the right prospects of continuing IPOS's development and making the industrial estate attractive for new business start-ups."

Some of the services Coor will be providing are production maintenance, project management and design, accounting, HR, storage services, procurement, analytical services, quality and environment, plus IT.
