Mekonomen outsources its finance service to Itella Information AB


Taking over Mekonomen’s finance department in Sweden will strengthen Itella Information AB’s position as a partner within financial processes. Mekonomen, with over 300 stores and more than 1,500 workshops trading under the Mekonomen brands, is the leading car parts chain in the Nordic countries with its own wholesale operations. The agreement covers 21 employees at Mekonomen’s central finance department, all of whom will transfer to Itella Information this autumn with unchanged employment terms and conditions.

- We are delighted with the agreement with Mekonomen which is fully in line with our strategy, says Katarina Dahlbäck, CEO of Itella Information Sweden and Head of Sales Area Scandinavia. - Outsourcing its finance department to us will make Mekonomen’s transaction processes such as accounts receivable and payable, payroll and general ledger more efficient.

- Having already centralised our finance department, we have been seeking a partner able to take over this part of our operations. Outsourcing to Itella Information will enable us to focus entirely on our future expansion, says Mathias Lindroth, CFO of Mekonomen Detaljist AB.
