Arctic Machine to open assembly factory in Finland

Arctic Machine manufactures equipment for snow removal, anti-skid treatment, road cleaning and road maintenance.

Arctic Machine Oy, a leading Finnish road maintenance equipment manufacturer, is establishing a new assembly factory in Jyväskylä, central Finland. According to Arctic Machine’s CEO Juha Jääskelä, the new factory will increase the company’s production capacity and boost efficiency. The new factory is set to open in August 2013 and will employ about ten people.

Many of Arctic Machine’s products include high-level intelligent technologies. About half of the company’s turnover comes from exports to the Nordic countries, the Baltic region, Russia and Belarus. Arctic Machine is the market leader in Finland.

Equipment for demanding conditions

According to Arctic Machine, it is the only Nordic manufacturer of road maintenance equipment which can equip entire road maintenance units for any task from snow removal, anti-skid treatment, road cleaning or road maintenance with intelligent control systems. The vast experience the company has gathered in the variable and demanding conditions of the North, along with the high quality of Finnish road maintenance technology, has made the company a reliable partner for many international road maintenance companies.

Arctic Machine Oy is a Finnish family enterprise which was established in 1981. Through corporate acquisitions, the history of the company extends to the late 1940s.
