“Our focus on sustainability is strengthened and our position as a global company consolidated with the launch of AFRY,” explained Jonas Gustavsson, President and CEO at AFRY. “Given the exponential technological development we are facing, our services and solutions are more relevant than ever. In the last couple of years, we have experienced significant growth, and our revenue has doubled since 2015. I am happy to be a part of creating a common platform for the whole company, as well as proud of bringing our vibrant history into the future.”
With a new common brand and offer, the company hopes to strengthen its position in the core markets of Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland and Switzerland, and grow internationally within, for example, the energy and process industries.
The legal name of the company will remain ÅF Pöyry AB.
