Anecta Acted as Advisor in the Acquisition of Finnish Safedo by Presto

Presto, back by Private Equity firm Adelis Equity Partners, acquires 100% of the shares in Finnish Safedo

Safedo is the leading supplier of defibrillators in Finland. The company has developed its own innovative product line for first-aid stations and first-aid kits, and it has accumulated a very strong knowledge base of first aid and security training courses.

Our goal is to strengthen the knowledge of life-threatening efforts and ensure efficient work on fire protection. Safedo’s advanced range of first-aid products and its strong position as an expert in first-aid readiness in Finnish workplaces allow us to further broaden our service offering in Finland as well as the rest of Scandinavia.

– Filip Bjurström, CEO of the Presto Group

Presto, Scandinavia’s largest fire protection and safety training company, boosts its presence in Finland and extends Presto’s services and product range whilst it also broadens our range of training courses to further promote the safety knowledge of our customers. This is Presto Group’s fourth acquisition in this segment in Finland during the last 12 months and they are now the domestic market leader in Finland.

Together with Presto, we can offer our customers a much more comprehensive range of safety training courses throughout Finland. Training constitutes an integral part of risk management in all companies. Preventing accidents enhances work safety, which translates into cost savings. As part of the Presto Group, we now also have more resources to develop our extensive range of first-aid products in the Finnish and other Scandinavian markets.

– Marko Parviainen, Founder and CEO of Safedo
