Newcomer of the Year 2021 is Levytyö Särkinen Oy. Cooperation with the company begun in the last financial year when we had received order for couple of landfill compactors from South Africa. However, there were problems accessing the required parts and we needed quickly new partner to handle the situation. Levytyö Särkinen started action and delivered the first parts with right quality on time. Eventually, customers’ machines could have been manufactured on time. This same quality has continued from the very beginning and our cooperation has further expanded.
