Intera invests in Toivonen Yhtiöt, a demolition and waste processing specialist


Intera invests in Toivonen Yhtiöt, a Finnish demolition and waste processing specialist. The founder Antero Toivonen continues as CEO and co-owner.

Toivonen Yhtiöt is specialised in demanding demolition projects in Finland as well as waste processing from industrial, construction and retail sources in southern Finland.

”The requirements in industrial and construction waste processing are getting tighter. Companies can benefit from committing to professional recycling. The more waste is returned to use, the more energy and recycled building material is available for industries and construction companies,” Intera’s Senior Advisor Erkki Norvio explains.

“There are few established players in demolition as well as industrial and construction waste processing even though the need to solve the waste challenge is greater than ever,” Norvio points out.

”We believe that the global trends of increasing energy efficiency and recycling as well as Toivonen’s strong market position form an excellent basis for growth. Antero Toivonen and his staff have worked for 20 years to create a leading modern recycling business,” states Intera’s Partner Janne Näränen.

CEO Antero Toivonen emphasises the company’s operative strengths:
”We commit ourselves to prompt project management. Intera’s support provides us with improved growth opportunities,” Toivonen comments.
