Growth is also pursued through business acquisitions, thus to spur sales, in September United Finance acquired TPL Group Oy, who had earlier introduced their subleasing concept to the market. TPL Group Oy has extremely robust expertise within the industry and existing customer contacts that can be utilized for growth.
“Previously, United Finance Oyj operated as an inhouse company, offering its services to a limited group of VIP clients, without the need to maintain a sales organization”, Marko Roivainen, the CEO of United Finance, says.
“Business acquisitions spurring our growth both domestically and internationally are also possible in the future”, Roivainen says of the future.
Timo Leinonen, the CEO of the TPL Group says that “more and more companies want to pay for the use of products, not the ownership. This rapidly advancing change in purchase-behavior has led to companies that sell widely different products offering their products to the customers using the service model in the future.”
