Combine harvesters from Pori to the world with 60 years of experience

30.1.2017

This year marks the 60th anniversary of Sampo Rosenlew's combine harvester production. So far, the company has delivered more than 50,000 combine harvesters to approximately 50 countries. Its key market areas are the Nordic countries, Europe, North Africa and the CIS countries.

Forestry machines were included in production alongside combine harvesters some 20 years ago. Sampo Rosenlew specializes in forest thinning solutions. Thinning has important economic and forest management benefits when carried out using machines specifically designed and manufactured for the purpose. Forest owners in Europe have already understood this for a long time, and now the trend can also be seen in Russia and North America.

Cooperation with the world's largest agricultural machine manufacturers allows the family company to grow globally. AGCO acts as an important strategic partner and is responsible for the distribution of combine harvesters in Finland and the other Nordic countries. Deere & Company, in turn, sells combine harvesters to Western and Central Europe.

 


Pioneer in customer-oriented product development

Sampo Rosenlew is capable of addressing global demand flexibly. The company has assembly plants in North Africa and Kazakhstan, where the frames imported from Finland are turned into a complete combine harvester using local workforce. Exporting knowhow will, of course, be followed by subcontractor networks specific to the target country in order to address component and spare part needs.

The need for food production steers global markets. In future, growth can be expected in the developing countries that have faced climate change, a natural catastrophe or war and in where securing food production requires light-weight but efficient solutions. New needs will also arise as a consequence of climate change. Testing products in real-life conditions is an important part of targeting sales efforts.
