Ramboll has built a clear market leadership in Finland throughout its 100-year history, offering the widest range of analytical services for environment testing. Its laboratories serve industrial companies, public municipalities as well as consulting companies. The company employs 109 staff across 4 laboratories in the southern region around Helsinki, as well as at a satellite laboratory in Tallinn, Estonia.

As the largest environment testing service provider in Finland, Ramboll has developed strong inroads with the largest customers in both the private and public sectors. The acquisition provides Eurofins with a market-leading position in environment testing, and a strong platform on which to accelerate the deployment of the Group’s capabilities in Finland, as well as a platform for entry into the Estonian market. In return, the acquired laboratories will have access to the entire portfolio of Eurofins’ testing methods, logistics, and other Group resources, which should allow it to further expand market share. The transaction should therefore benefit customers who will continue to enjoy the high quality services previously offered by Ramboll’s laboratories, complemented with an improved and wider range of analytical as well as IT services.

Comment from Lone A. Clowes, Regional Director at Ramboll Environment & Health: “While Ramboll Analytics has a strong foothold on the Finnish market, it is a very specialised service requiring dedicated development and investment strategies. We believe that the analytics business will have the best development opportunities in a company that is fully focused on the laboratory sector”.

Comment from Dr. Gilles Martin, Eurofins CEO: “The acquisition of Ramboll laboratories in Finland reflects Ramboll Group’s confidence that Eurofins has the capabilities to successfully develop these over the long term. It also reflects our commitment to further strengthen Eurofins’ position as the leading private, independent analytical testing service provider in Finland”.
