We are here for the customer

We have produced mining services since 1972.

Currently, we are operating at several mines as an integral part of production. We carry out continuous research and development to improve the mining industry and the industrial sector.

We have applied for a permit to open a Finnish iron and copper-gold mine in Kolari.

We strive to operate near the customer and provide them with customised services. Our objective is to be a partner with whom our customers want to work in the long term to ensure the prosperity of the region and the company.
