Yanmar Europe B.V.
YANMAR, based in Japan with European headquarters in The Netherlands and one of the largest manufacturers of diesel engines in the world, has appointed FINMOTOR Oy as new distributor for industrial engines in Finland. With effect from February 2021, FINMOTOR will take over distributorship of Oy BRAND AB for delivery, warranty, service and spare parts of new and existing YANMAR engines.
Established in 1988 and based in Vantaa, FINMOTOR Oy is a leading company focused 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 received training on the latest engine features and specifications in 2020.
Ismo Hiltunen, CEO/Owner of FINMOTOR: “I am proud to be able to expand our existing portfolio with the high-quality, eco-friendly industrial engines of YANMAR. As global market leader, YANMAR has a long-standing reputation for reliability and continuity. I am looking forward to representing the brand on the Finnish market and building a strong and sustainable partnership."
Bert Kranenborg, Sr. Area Manager Industrial Powertrain at YANMAR: “We are pleased to have FINMOTOR on board as a trusted partner for our range of industrial engines in Finland. 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.”
With beginnings in Osaka, Japan, in 1912, YANMAR was the first ever to succeed in making a compact diesel engine of a practical size in 1933. Moving on, with diesel engines as the cornerstone of the enterprise, YANMAR has continued to expand its product range, services, and expertise to deliver total solutions as an equipment manufacturer. As a provider of small and large combustion engines, agricultural machinery and facilities, construction equipment, energy systems, marine engines, machine tools, and components — YANMAR’s global business operations span seven domains.
On land, at sea, and in the city, YANMAR’s Mission of “providing sustainable solutions focused on the challenges customers face, in food production and harnessing power, thereby enriching people’s lives for all our tomorrows,” stands testament to YANMAR’s determination to providing us with “A Sustainable Future.” For more information, visit us at https://www.yanmar.com/eu/about/
