ALTEN Finland strengthens its position in IT industry

09/05/2019

ALTEN Finland, one of the largest Technology and IT consulting companies in Finland, is now expanding its service offering in software development and software quality assurance. A new business unit will be established in the Helsinki region, in cooperation with Comiq Group Oy which ALTEN acquired earlier this year. Since 2003, Comiq has used its strong expertise in software quality assurance, DevOps and automation solution development to support the success of the most notable corporations in Finland. This new IT business unit, although located in Helsinki, will also support clients and other ALTEN offices across the country.

Due to its strong growth, ALTEN will move its 200-strong team of professionals to new facilities in the Kalasatama district in Helsinki. The new premises are located in a new office building called Rantatien Loikka, within easy reach of the city. Now ALTEN Finland operates in 10 cities and has more than 600 employees.

”I’m looking forward to the co-operation of ALTEN and Comiq. Comiq has been operating in the greater Helsinki area for 16 years, and ALTEN Group employs almost 34 000 technology and IT professionals globally. Our aim is to become one of the leading software development organizations in Finland”, says the managing director of ALTEN Finland, Juha Sillanpää.

”I am deeply honored that it was ALTEN who bought Comiq. ALTEN is an internationally known brand, and with ALTEN we will be able to support our customers with international expertise with a local presence and together grow and develop the IT business in Finland. For this purpose, Kalasatama serves as an excellent base for operations”, states the managing director of Comiq Oy, Antti Öfversten.
