PALFINGER expands dealer network in Finland
PALFINGER Platforms is expanding its dealer network in Finland to include four modern, central locations. Additional mobile service mechanics across the country are also on hand to assist customers and ensure fast response times together with a high level of availability. The expansion of the location network is possible thanks to the merger of CarloMas and the new PALFINGER partner RealMachinery. This partnership sees PALFINGER Platforms take another step towards achieving market leadership in Finland.
RealMachinery – an experienced partner
RealMachinery was founded in 2010. Alongside its many years of experience with cranes and access platforms, RealMachinery recently acquired the business of CarloMas as well. Kaarlo Halinen, former General Manager of CarloMas, will be on hand to assist the new owner as a specialist in access platforms and a Finnish market expert. The partnership with PALFINGER Platforms is in the best interests of RealMachinery, which plans to further expand its business areas for cranes and access platforms from 2016. The company will also invest heavily in training and qualification for its employees and partners. RealMachinery considers itself a full-service dealer and offers maintenance and repair services across Finland for its products.
