Huurre Group strengthens its position in Russia

Huurre OOO is further expanding in Russia by taking over several major service contracts, e.g. the maintenance of over 100 retail supermarkets in the Moscow area. The transaction also includes the employment of several retail refrigeration specialists. With this transaction, Huurre Group strengthens its consequent strategy to be one of the leading refrigeration companies in the fast growing Russian market.

Huurre has been present in Russia since the 1980's. It has become a major supplier in the refrigeration market as cold storage and refrigeration contractor. These contracts offer a good base for expanding the business into retail refrigeration service and contracting in the future.

"The new key personnel and service contracts will be integrated into Huurre OOO's existing refrigeration & service division in Moscow. They will further strengthen the company's position by expanding its customer base", says Niclas Sacklén, Director of Business Development in Huurre Group
