“We are so happy to get this opportunity to be part of the Fidelix Group. We believe that Fidelix is an ideal partner to support our growth plan in Sweden and we see also an attractive opportunity to extend our offering to residential building owners in Finland and other new markets. We will be even stronger together in digitalization of buildings in the Nordics.” says Björn Fagerdahl, CEO EcoGuard.

EcoGuard has today a turnover of 100 MSEK and about 50 employees. The acquisition has no impact on the employees of EcoGuard or Fidelix.
