Finmotor to take over distributor duties
Yanmar has appointed Finmotor Oy as its new distributor for industrial engines in Finland. With effect from February 2021, Finmotor will take over distributorship from Oy Brand AB for delivery, warranty, service and spare parts of new and existing Yanmar engines. Oy Brand was Yanmar’s former distributor for Finland. Finmotor has taken over this distributorship.
Established in 1988 and based in Vantaa, Finmotor Oy focusses on internal combustion engine technology, lifting equipment technology and transmission. Although Finmotor is a new distributor for Yanmar engines, they are already familiar with the brand and its products through training on the latest engine features and specifications in 2020.
Ismo Hiltunen, chief executive officer and owner of Finmotor, said: “I am proud to be able to expand our existing portfolio with the high-quality, eco-friendly industrial engines of Yanmar. I am looking forward to representing the brand on the Finnish market and building a strong and sustainable partnership.”
Bert Kranenborg, Senior Area manager, Industrial Powertrain, Yanmar, said:“ We are confident that, with their experience and skills, they will be able to further develop the local OEM market and offer high-level service to existing and new customers. It is encouraging to see that despite the global COVID-19 restrictions and the current economic conditions, we find alternative ways to conduct business successfully.”
