Electros Business Transfers to Barona

The current business operations of Electros will become part of Barona on 1 April 2015. After the business transfer, employees working at Electros on 1 April 2015 will become part of the Barona working community. 

In January, Electros placed the cooperative into liquidation, with the aim of dissolving the cooperative. The reasons for launching the process were a considerable reduction in operations and the retirement of current management. 

Vesa Karjalahti, VP at Barona Manufacturing comments on the business transfer: “This is a win-win deal that provides better continuity of employment for the Electros personnel. Customers have been satisfied with the service and hereby they will be provided with at least the same level of service as before, and a significantly broader range of service-variety through Barona. At Barona Industry, the business transfer will allow us to provide more in-depth and specialized services for our customers, especially in the technology industry."
