Lakers acquires Pumppulohja
Stockholm, 24 May 2019 – Lakers Group, the leading independent water pump service company in the Nordic region, acquires Pumppulohja, a leading pump service and manufacturing company in Finland with NOK 150 million in revenue. Lakers’ pro-forma revenues increase to over NOK 500 million.
– Pumppulohja is renowned name in the pumping industry in Finland. The company enjoys very strong loyalty from customers and is continually rated very high by customers on service and flexibility. We could not have a better platform for Lakers to expand in the Finnish market., says Carl-Johan Callenholm, co-founder and CEO of Lakers.
We now have a strong foothold in each Nordic market and this deal means that Lakers maintain a strong momentum in the buy and build strategy, says Callenholm.
Summa Equity Fund I acquired a majority stake in Lakers Group AB in October 2018. Since the acquisition, Lakers has done five additional add-on acquisitions.
Summa Equity is among the first Private Equity firms to commit to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). This acquisition is aligned with Summa Equity’s Resource Efficiency theme and SDG #6: “Ensure access of water and sanitation for all”.
– Lakers strengthens its contribution to sustainable management and availability of water and wastewater. The Nordic water and wastewater infrastructure is ageing and has large inefficiencies. Growing populations, urbanization, increased connectivity and more complex regulatory standards drive a need for further restructuring and upgrades of the infrastructure, says Johannes Lien, Partner at Summa Equity.
Pumppulohja is one of the largest manufacturers and distributors of pumps, pressure
vessels, water filters and water treatment solutions in Finland, currently employing 70 people. The company is headquartered in Saukkola, with own production facilities and warehouse operations.
To secure continuity and utilize experience, existing managing directors remain in their positions in the company.

Lakers ostaa Pumppulohjan
Tukholma, 27. toukokuuta 2019 – Pohjoismaiden johtava vesipumppualan palveluyritys Lakers Group ostaa Pumppulohjan, joka on Suomen johtava pumppualan palvelu- ja valmistusyritys 150 miljoonan NOK:n liikevaihdollaan. Kauppa nostaa Lakersin liikevaihdon 500 miljoonaan NOK:iin.
– Pumppulohja on Suomessa tunnettu nimi pumppualalla. Yritys nauttii asiakkaidensa suurta luottamusta, ja se saa asiakkailta jatkuvasti erittäin hyviä arvioita palvelustaan ja joustavuudestaan. Emme olisi voineet saada Lakersille parempaa alustaa Suomen markkinoille laajentamiselle, sanoo yksi Lakersin perustajista, toimitusjohtaja Carl-Johan Callenholm. Nyt meillä on vankka jalansija kaikilla pohjoismaisilla markkinoilla, ja tämän kaupan myötä pidämme yllä hyvää vauhtia osto- ja kehitysstrategiassamme.
Summa Equity Fund I hankki enemmistöosuuden Lakers Group AB:stä lokakuussa 2018. Tämän kaupan jälkeen Lakers on tehnyt viisi lisähankintaa.
Summa Equity on yksi ensimmäisistä pääomasijoitusyrityksistä, jotka ovat sitoutuneet YK:n kestävän kehityksen tavoitteisiin. Tämä hankinta on linjassa Summa Equityn resurssitehokkuusteeman ja kestävän kehityksen tavoitteen nro 6 kanssa: ”Puhdas vesi ja sanitaatio kaikille”.
– Lakers vahvistaa sitoutumistaan kestävään johtamiseen, vedensaantiin ja jätevesien hallintaan. Vesi- ja jätevesijärjestelmien infrastruktuuri on Pohjoismaissa ikääntyvää ja laajalti tehotonta. Kasvava väestömäärä, kaupungistuminen, suurempi liikkuvuus ja entistä monimutkaisemmat säädökset luovat tarvetta infrastruktuurin uudistamiseen ja päivittämiseen, sanoo Summa Equityn osakas Johannes Lien.
Pumppulohja on yksi Suomen suurimmista pumppujen, painesäiliöiden, vedensuodattimien ja vedenkäsittelyratkaisujen valmistajista ja jakelijoista. Se työllistää nykyisin 70 henkeä. Yrityksen pääkonttori sijaitsee Saukkolassa. Sillä on omat tuotantotilat ja varastotoiminnot.
Jatkuvuuden varmistamiseksi ja kokemuksen hyödyntämiseksi nykyinen johto pysyy tehtävissään yrityksessä.
Lakers on perustettu vuonna 2016, ja sen pääkonttori sijaitsee Oslossa. Kyseessä on pohjoismainen konserni, joka toimii vesi- ja jätevesialan jälkimarkkinoilla. Se tarjoaa pumppuja, pumppuasemia, sähkömoottoreita ja niihin liittyviä komponentteja koskevia ylläpito-, huolto- ja kehityspalveluja ja teknistä konsultaatiota. Yrityksellä on yhteensä 200 työntekijää Norjassa, Ruotsissa, Suomessa ja Tanskassa. www.lakers.no
