Currently, the company employs about 130 people, but there are plans to employ a total of 400 people in the future. Around the world, there are 9.5 thousand people working in this Finnish concern. It specialises in the construction of transshipping equipment, marketing hoisting and hauling equipment, as well as services connected with loading and unloading.
