Netled enters into strategic cooperation with Rejlers

Netled, designing and building farming technology, outsources its project management to Rejlers, with Rejlers taking responsibility for project management in line with the EPCM model for Netled customer deliveries. As part of the deal, six employees from Netled transfer to Rejlers per July.

“Rejlers has solid experience in EPCM deliveries (engineering, procurement and construction management) and we believe that this arrangement brings added value to the end customers of the deliveries, Netled and us. Netled represents sustainable business with a much more energy efficient solution compared to traditional greenhouse farming. During the years, Rejlers has successfully taken over several outsourced operations and this supports our growth,” says Aki Hakkarainen, leading Rejlers’ Industry division in Finland.

“For Netled, the partnership enables a focus on providing comprehensive solutions for vertical farming. Additionally, the agreement allows for faster business scalability as project delivery capacity significantly increases. By delivering commercial projects together with the strong project expertise of Rejlers, we can concentrate on production solutions that directly serve retail chains and other food supply channels. These solutions consist of not only high-quality project delivery, but also superior Vera technology and skilled farm operations. Netled also focuses on developing vertical farming solutions for new crops and integration solutions for higher value-added markets,” says Niko Kivioja, CEO at Netled.

Netled is specialized in solutions for vertical farming or growing crops in vertical layers. Six persons will transfer from Netled to Rejlers Finland Industry division on July 3, 2023 as old employees.

“We warmly welcome our new Rejlers colleagues,” says Aki Hakkarainen.
