Are Oy and LAK Real Estate Oyj have signed a continuation agreement for property maintenance services and technical management. The agreement entered into force in the beginning of May and marks a continuation of the companies’ close cooperation, started in 2013, in which Are provides services for the properties in the airport area. The agreement covers 13 properties, from hangars to freight terminals and office facilities.


Are’s customer-oriented maintenance operations and strong technical expertise made it possible to establish the agreement through negotiations.


“Our operating environment requires agile operations when it comes to property maintenance. Our cooperation with Are covers basic and technical maintenance. The properties covered in the agreement are managed full-time by two of Are’s skilled maintenance employees. It is important for us to work with skilled and service-oriented employees whose work is dedicated specifically to LAK’s properties. We aim to procure resources rather than fill a specific, detailed job description. This means that maintenance work can be carried out flexibly, enabling us to serve our customers as well as possible. Our confidence in Are’s employees makes it possible for our small organisation to concentrate on our core expertise,” says Mikko Jokipii, Property Manager at LAK Real Estate.


“This agreement has been possible above all thanks to our skilled team at the site. It is great to be able to continue cooperation based on such a strong relationship of trust,” says Janne Kokkonen, Business Unit Manager at Are.
