Vincit strengthens its service design expertise by acquiring Linja Design

Vincit has acquired Linja Design's entire business. The company plans digital products and services especially for industry customers, such as Airbus, ABB and Ponsse.

Founder of Linja Design, Eljas Perheentupa: "Last spring, the design market went a long way, when a large number of our competitors merged with software companies. I listened to the opinions of our employees and customers, and I came to the conclusion that it is better to go with others than to stay isolated. Together with Vincit, we can offer our customers better service and scalability."

Head of Vincit California, Ville Houttu: "Our North American customers who specialize in IoT and home automation will definitely benefit from the acquisition of one of the most experienced Industrial Design focused agencies."
