Today, the company employs more than 140 public transport professionals in scheduled and local transport, operating a modern fleet of around 100 buses.
– Thanks to the deal, we will have broader shoulders in the future to operate in a capital-intensive industry, but still cherishing the values and operating methods of the family business, states the current CEO of Lehtimäki Liikentee Mikko Lehtimäki, who is satisfied with the transaction with Vekka Group.
The completed arrangement is part of Vekka Group’s growth strategy.
– With the deal, Vekka Group is able to serve its customers even more versatile. Our geographical operating area is also growing significantly, says Vekka Group’s CEO Tomi Vasiliev.
