“Our strategy is to pursue profitable growth in our product businesses Roofing and Building Envelopes. We’re pleased to have found a new owner who is better positioned to develop Building Systems, which is of a project-type of business,” says Sami Eronen, President of Ruukki Construction.

The business now being divested had sales of around SEK 1.5 billion in 2019 with a slightly positive operating profit.

Building Systems employs some 500 persons, who will transfer to the service of the new owner under their existing terms and conditions of employment.
