Almere, 9 November 2020. YANMAR is pleased to announce a new partnership with Hankkija OY in Finland for the entire YANMAR compact tractor range.

As a distributor, Hankkija will promote, sell and service the entire YANMAR compact tractor portfolio, including the YM & SA compact utility tractor series with Smart Assist Remote for system management and monitoring, and the YT series: the first sub-50HP tractors with extraordinary YANMAR designed and manufactured i-HMT (Vario) transmission for smooth and economical operation.

Strong player

“Our distributorship for YANMAR premium tractors is a great addition to our current machine range and aftermarket service. We always select the best partners and products to serve our customers’ need to develop and streamline their own operations. Product efficiency, longevity and overall quality are our main selection criteria. With the addition of our efficiency and expertise in the sales and after-sales network, I dare say that we are one of the strongest players on the market to meet the needs of seasonal maintenance and landscaping customers,” says Kari Kahilainen, Sales Manager at Hankkija.

Smooth onboarding

“We have found a strong partner in Hankkija to further strengthen our position in agricultural, public and landscaping sector in Finland. Hankkija Oy is a Finnish company with Finnish staff and a Finnish business culture, which clearly makes a difference for the local market. Despite the current travel restrictions, we had ample opportunity to negotiate, meet, and train offline. Thanks to Hankkija’s commitment, experience and skill level we were able to onboard them quickly and successfully as our new trusted distributor,” says Marc van der Wurf, Product Manager of YANMAR Europe B.V.

First order

Hankkija ordered the first SA and YT cabin model tractors this summer and started the introduction to their dealer network. Shortly after, the first tractor – a YT347 with cabin and loader – was sold. Hankkija belongs to the Danish Agro group. Danish Agro is the 6th largest player in Europe in the field of agricultural trade and consists of a large number of companies in the Scandinavian and Baltic regions.
