The story of Finland's oldest internet service provider continues

Image World has been acquired by a new owner. The story of Finland's oldest internet service provider continues under the ownership of e-Sollertis. The value of the deal will not be disclosed.

E-Sollertis is a strong and growing player in the Finnish data centre market. Sollertis offers comprehensive IT outsourcing services, relating to servers, hosting, help desk, data security, office IT and consulting.

On 6 October 2015, Sollertis acquired the business of Oy IW-Net Ltd. In the acquisition, the brand name, products, clients and product development of Image World were transferred to Sollertis. Image World was founded in 1992 by Mika Hoffren, who is also a Sollertis shareholder, allowing Image World to retain its status as the oldest internet service provider in Finland.

This will cause no changes to Image World's services, and even its location will stay the same, meaning that services will still be provided from Niiralankatu in Kuopio. For the clients, the acquisition brings more services and makes it possible to request on-site IT support everywhere in Finland.
