Finnish IRgA member Valopaino has been sold to Multiprint, Finland's second-largest reprographics company. The sale closed February 6. Multiprint has a staff of about 300 and offices along the west coast of Finland and in Estonia.
"They didn’t have any CAD services to offer at the Helsinki area and have been asking us about the last 20 years in case we could fill that gap. And finally they got a yes from our side," says Kirsti Paasikallio, Valopaino's president. Paasikallio added that her daughters did not express an interest in running the family-owned firm, and sales have been declining, so it was the right time to sell.
