Was looking for a good match
KaideKanerva is a family business with 40 employees and main office, production and warehouse located in Mäntsälä.
- For quite some time we have been considering our alternatives for how we should continue the business. We are very pleased that Saferoad, a company with long experience in the field of road safety and whose personnel and operating methods we know, was selected as the best option among several buyer candidates. We hope that the developments that we are working on for the benefit of customers and traffic safety will continue in Saferoad, enabling an even safer environment for road users, says Matti Kanerva the founder of KaideKanerva.
