We all want to change the world. But when you talk about blasting, count us in.

Finexplo was established in July 2009 by Kalliotekniikka Consulting Engineers, who invited von Hertzen Consulting to join the group. Good relationships with a number of larger contractors ensured participation in a number of large underground projects including the Helsinki Metro extension and large underground parking facilities in both Helsinki and Tampere.

In 2016 von Hertzen Consulting bought out the Kalliotekniikka shareholding, leading to a 100 % ownership and has thereafter during 2017 invited new shareholders into the company. 2017 and 2018 has been a year of focusing on establishing closer relationships with existing suppliers, as well as bringing in new products, services and focus on inventory management.
