The KWH Group is restructuring the KWH Logistics division. Fr.o.m. 1.6.2021, KWH Freeze and KWH Logistics will become two separate and independent core divisions.
KWH Freeze has been part of KWH Logistics since 2000. Following the change, the KWH Group has 4 divisions. KWH Freeze is the largest frozen storage provider in Finland and has warehouses in Vantaa and Inkoo.
– Both divisions have grown rapidly over the past 5 years and meet the Group’s basic requirements for core division status, says CEO Kjell Antus about the background to the change.

– It feels good that our long work and success has borne fruit. This gives us the zeal to further develop our business, Peter Lång rejoices.
