“We at Rinnekoti are glad to see the cooperation starting. Transferring the Rinnekoti professionals to Are’s services benefits us as well. They are familiar with our properties and requirements, but they also bring new expertise from their experience at a larger employer. We expect high quality and reliable maintenance services from our cooperation”, says Lea Nevalainen, Director of Administration at Rinnekoti.
