Taratest Oy and Surgeon Oy have agreed on a transaction whereby 100% of Surgeon Oy’s stock will be transferred to Taratest from September 1, 2023. With the sale, Taratest continues its strong growth as a service provider for demanding construction projects. Both Surgeon’s CEO Esa Yli-Jaskari and the company’s personnel will continue in their previous positions.
Taratest, which offers geotechnical services and environmental studies for different phases of the construction life cycle, strengthens its expertise in measurement technology by acquiring the business of Surgeon Oy, a pioneering company in the field.
Surgeon is a pioneer in measuring technology for infrastructure, new construction and renovation projects. The company’s impressive reference list includes countless demanding sites, such as Hakaniemi’s Crown Bridges, Ring Road bridges, Isoisänssilta, Tammisairaila, large shopping centers in the capital region, some of the western metro stations, and 560 bridges around Finland.
Taratest Oy, which expanded from the Tampere region to the south, has grown at a considerable annual rate in recent years. The turnover of the company, which has gained experience in, among other things, national highway projects, was EUR 21.3 million in the financial period ending in December 2022. The acquisition, which is now taking place, aims to continue strong growth in Finland.
Mergero acted as an advisor on the transaction.
