"Our initial idea to go ahead with IT infrastructure outsourcing was triggered by the need to gain more resources. We didn’t, however, consider it reasonable to hire an army of people, but instead decided to partner up and purchase the availability and user support services we need. This way our own staff is free to focus on supporting our core business development", IT Manager Jorma Mursu of Huurre explains.
In 2004 Huurre acquired WR Refrigeration Ltd, the largest refrigeration contractor and service company in the UK. Its service network spans across the entire United Kingdom with the force of 500 refrigeration professionals. The acquisition nearly doubled Huurre’s net sales.
40 per cent of Huurre staff is located in the UK. The company has operations also in other Nordic Countries and Russia. The Patja service does not as yet extend outside Finland, but expandability was one important criterion for Huurre.
"We weren’t after a purely domestic player, as it is our plan to implement this solution in other countries, as well”, says Managing Director Lars Lindell of Huurre.
