Broadcast Solutions GmbH enters Finnish broadcast market through new acquisition
Broadcast Solutions GmbH has announced that it has successfully acquired Outside Broadcast Service Business from the Finnish systems integrator Qualitron Oy Ab and established a subsidiary, Broadcast Solutions Finland Oy. The newly formed subsidiary will provide OB Support and Maintenance Services to its customers in Finland and will invest further later this year in order to cover all aspects of broadcast services.
The Finnish broadcast market is very innovative and well appreciated in Europe, although it is relatively small in size. Broadcast Solutions says it will leverage the experience it gains from this acquisition with its customer base in Europe, Middle East and South East Asia, where the company has already delivered more than 100 OB vans in the past years.
“With this acquisition we will bring one more significant aspect, OB Support & Maintenance Service, into our offering and will develop this service even further so the all our existing and new customers can benefit from this development as well,” says Antti Laurila, the newly appointed managing director of Broadcast Solutions Finland Oy.
“We are sure that continuing the established OB Support & Service Business in Finland and its further development will be a show case and an excellent practical example about our future service business model to all our Streamline Family customers in the future. This concept will surely give a boost to our already field proven Streamline Family concept.”
Stefan Breder, CEO at Broadcast Solutions GmbH, comments: “We are very much looking forward to offering our expertise in developing OB vans, OB support and service, as well as in further fields of high class broadcast technology, to the Finish broadcast market. With Finland being one of the most forward-striving broadcast markets in Europe we are happy to serve our new customers and jointly encourage Finland’s leading position in the future.”
Broadcast Solutions Finland’s office will be located in the Pasila media campus in Helsinki close to all major customers in Finland e.g. YLE, MTV, Digita, Streamteam, Director’s Cut and NEP Finland.
Juha Koskela, CEO, Streamteam Nordic Oy, said: “Streamteam is very excited to see the well-known international system integrator, Broadcast Solutions, establishing an office in Finland and we are looking forward to starting co-operation with them.”
