STARK Group strengthens its presence in Finland

STARK Group’s Finnish company, STARK Suomi, is bolstering its presence and position in the country’s tenth-largest city, Pori. Here, the company is opening a new branch, marking yet another investment in the growth areas around the larger cities.

CEO of STARK Group, Søren P. Olesen says:

With the opening of the branch in Pori, we improve our offering to Finnish tradespeople, with branches extending from the northern to southern regions. The strategic location of this branch significantly strengthens our network and, at the same time, ensures a good and efficient flow for our customers,”

"Despite the seemingly challenging landscape of Finland’s construction industry, we continue with investments and ongoing improvements of our business network in order to be able to service the professional tradespeople throughout Finland.”

The new branch in Pori, which extends over approximately 8,200 square meters, marks STARK Group’s third branch opening in Finland within six months and the group’s tenth in the same period. This is a central step in the company’s growth strategy and testifies to a continued commitment to strengthening its position across markets.
