Broadcast Solutions GmbH enters the Finnish Broadcast market by acquiring Outside Broadcast Service Business from Qualitron Oy Ab and establishing a subsidiary in Finland to grow its broadcast business in the country and service portfolio in general. Broadcast Solutions GmbH has successfully acquired Outside Broadcast Service Business from the Finnish System Integrator Qualitron Oy Ab and established a subsidiary, Broadcast Solutions Finland Oy. The newly formed subsidiary will provide OB Support and Maintenance Services to its customers in Finland and will invest further to expand its offering later this year to cover all aspects of Broadcast Services.

The Finnish Broadcast market is very innovative and well appreciated in Europe although it is relatively small in size. But also due its nature the market has become more service oriented than many others in Europe. Broadcast Solutions as an early adopter will now leverage the experience it gains from this acquisition with its customer base in Europe, Middle-East and South-East Asia, where the company has already delivered more than 100 OB-Vans in the past years.

“With this acquisition we will bring one more significant aspect, OB Support & Maintenance Service, into our offering and will develop this service even further so that all our existing and new customers can benefit from this development as well”, says Antti Laurila, the newly appointed Managing Director of Broadcast Solutions Finland Oy.

“We are sure that continuing the established OB Support & Service Business in Finland and its further development will be a show case and an excellent practical example about our future service business model to all our Streamline Family customers in the future. This concept will surely give a boost to our already field proven Streamline Family concept”.

In addition to the OB Service Business, Broadcast Solutions will bring its international experience and knowledge to use for its Finnish customers, that will help the Finnish market to get the latest innovations and best practices among the first in Europe.

Stefan Breder, CEO at Broadcast Solutions GmbH, comments: “We are very much looking forward to offering our expertise in developing OB-Vans, OB Support & Service as well as in further fields of high-class broadcast technology to the Finish broadcast market. With Finland being one of the most forward striving broadcast markets in Europe we are happy to serve our new customers and jointly encourage Finland’s leading position in the future.”

Broadcast Solutions Finland’s office will be located in the Pasila media campus in Helsinki close to all major customers in Finland e.g. YLE, MTV, Streamteam, Digita and NEP.

Juha Koskela, CEO, Streamteam Finland Oy: “Streamteam is very excited to see the well-known international system integrator, Broadcast Solutions, establishing an office in Finland and we are looking forward to starting co-operation with them”.
