Major investments for fast-growing machinery professional Adolf Lahti
Adolf Lahti has made several large investments recently such as a Sennebogen 875 which is being operated in Mussalo, a Mantsinen 300 and twelve different Volvo machines to seven of the company’s locations. The Volvo machines are the company’s largest single machinery investment so far.
According to Adolf Lahti’s Regional Director Pekka Pöllänen, more investments are being planned as we speak.
– Investing in modern equipment is very important for us. Having a customer-oriented approach in our services and being able to provide tailored and efficient logistic solutions for our customers is at the core of our business, says Pöllänen.
Adolf Lahti is a growing company in the industrial services sector with a comprehensive range of machinery. The company provides a wide array of services from material handling and factory services to different earthmoving and maintenance services and planning of logistical processes. In 2009 when the company became a part of KWH Logistics it had 9 machines and sales of one million euro – this year it is expected to have sales of 20 million euro and over 200 machines. Thanks to hard work and a committed staff, Adolf Lahti is today a preferred partner on in-plant logistics and machinery rental for the forest industry.
As a group, KWH Logistics made investments for 29 MEUR in 2018. Investments are an important part of the group’s strategy, as making the logistic chains smarter often means making large investments in machines and facilities. This is possible thanks to our solid owner, the KWH Group.
Adolf Lahti will continue to invest and offer expert knowledge and modern equipment for most of the work involved in bulk handling, heavy internal transportation, factory services, workshop services and maintenance.
– Our aim is to keep growing and investing. Thanks to our strong owner, we are able to make even larger investments that improve the logistic chains of our customers. Finding competent people is also very important for us. We’re always looking for motivated people who are willing to develop themselves and we welcome open applications, says Pekka Pöllänen.
