“The acquisition of JokiLaakeri is fully in line with our strategic objective to take the leading position as technical solution provider within the fields of bearings, power transmissions, seals and related services in the Nordic market. JokiLaakeri becoming a part of Nomo is a great fit in terms of employees, products and geography”, says Mattias Jaginder, CEO of Nomo.
