ROIMA INTELLIGENCE EXPANDS IN SWEDEN – SPRYMER AB JOINS THE ROIMA GROUP
Roima’s international growth continues as Swedish Sprymer AB joins the Roima group and becomes Roima Sverige AB. At the same time, Roima’s board and ownership are strengthened with Swedish expertise.
Established in 2014, Sprymer is the leading Swedish manufacturing operations management solutions specialist, serving technology and food and beverage companies. Sprymer’s expertise complements the software and services developed and offered by Roima: both companies boost their customers’ profitability by optimizing and automating their processes using software and digitalization as tools.
The new bridgehead and local presence in Sweden is a key step in Roima’s expansion in Northern Europe.
“Roima now has six offices in Finland, one in the Netherlands and two in Sweden (Västerås and Linköping). We play a significant role in strenghtening industrial manufacturing in Northern Europe, and Sprymer is an ideal addition to Roima’s offering and team. We share the same vision and drive to improve the competitiveness and profitability of our customers. With Sprymer joining our forces, our know-how and capacity grow again significantly”, states Roima’s CEO Jukka Ropponen.

part of Europe’s
leading company in its field “

“It’s great to become part of Europe’s leading company in its field and to get to boost the competitiveness of our customers through an even stronger offering and with more resources”, rejoices Sprymer’s CEO and Chairman Robert Majanen, the future Director of Swedish Operations for Roima.
