Peikko Canada Inc. was founded in late fall 2007 with the objective of sales & marketing of various products of Peikko Group in North America. During the past two years Peikko’s team in Canada has successfully started the activities and a decision was made to further improve customer service by extending the service range to manufacturing.
During spring 2010 Peikko Canada Inc. will start the manufacturing of connection items sold predominantly to precast factories in North America, as well as applications in the area of wind tower foundations. The manufacturing operations include e.g. threading and welding technologies. The operations will take place in the existing facility currently used for warehousing in Quebec City, Canada.
In addition to the above production activities Peikko Canada Inc. has made an agreement with a Canadian steel fabricator for the subcontracting of Peikko’s Deltabeam product line for the North American market. Therefore, for the coming projects Deltabeams will be also made in America.
“For Peikko it is a must to provide excellent delivery times and this many times means regional manufacturing capability. Our decentralized but tightly controlled manufacturing strategy will also mean better service to our North American customers. The manufacturing activities now started should be seen only as a starting point – increases will be made gradually to the scope and the scale of them as the market opens up for Peikko’s products” states Topi Paananen, CEO of Peikko Group Corporation.
