Håkonsen og Sukke was founded in 2008 and is one of Norway's most solid Landscaping companies with good profitability. The company employs about 90 people and is active in geography west of the Oslo Fjord with headquarters in Tønsberg.

- Håkonsen og Sukke is a company we have had on the radar for a long time, and when the time was right, a dialogue began. The company is run by skilled leaders who share our view on both leadership and culture. We see that the management of the company through Roar Håkonsen, Brede Sukke and Tommy Lier will continue to run the company in the same way as before, but with the difference that they now have colleagues in Green Landscaping Group. We welcome all employees in the company to the group, concludes Johan Nordström, CEO of Green Landscaping Group.

- Our intention was not to sell the company, but when we saw the other players that have become part of Green Landscaping Group, we became curious. Then, when we understood what the group intends to achieve by its decentralized model, we realized that the offer was the right next step for Håkonsen og Sukke. We will continue to run the company and are owners through investment in Green Landscaping Group. This gives us further inspiration to continue developing Håkonsen og Sukke and we are pleased to become colleagues with the group's other companies in Norway, says Roar Håkonsen, CEO of Håkonsen og Sukke.
