The actions started in January 2019 to incorporate the Ruukki Construction’s Building System business unit have been completed, and it has now become an independent business unit. Building Systems is specialised in the design, manufacture and installation of building frame and envelope structures and bridge structures.
In accordance with its strategy, Ruukki Construction is focusing on profitable growth from its product businesses, Residential Roofing and Building Components, focusing on roofing and façade products. From now on, the project-based business of Ruukki Building Systems will be managed as an independent business in order to create suitable conditions for the development of its profitability and expertise.
The incorporation does not affect the personnel and they will continue in the new company as so-called ‘existing employees’. The business employs approximately 500 people, and it has production facilities in Peräseinäjoki, Ylivieska (Finland), Gargždai (Lithuania) and Oborniki (Poland). All the functions of the Building Systems business unit will also be transferred to the new unit.
The incorporation of the Building Systems business does not affect customer deliveries, service, or contact information, and the same contact persons continue to provide services to customers also in the future. The new unit will continue its operations under the Ruukki brand.
