Kauko is seeking out growth in Europe and has opened a new unit in Germany, which is focused on manufacturing and selling hospital ICT. The objective is to reach all of the industry’s operators from hospitals to medical device manufacturers.


At the same time, the company will shift its focus to mobile IT in demanding working environments.
In the future, Kauko will focus its business especially on healthcare technology; its special expertise in this field includes various care environment and mobile solutions designed for healthcare that are tailored together with the customer.
The decision was based on the position that Kauko attained within a short time-frame as one of Finland’s leading suppliers of healthcare technology both for care environment technology and mobile applications.

“Our healthcare business started up in 2012. By last year, the business had expanded many times over and now Kauko is one of the leading suppliers of mobile care environment and mobile IT solutions in Finland,” says Sami Koskela, Managing Director of Kauko Group.
