NORDIC RESCUE GROUP LEADS VEMA LIFT TO GROWTH, NEW FACTORY IN FINLAND

Vema Lift Oy has signed a contract for a new factory with Hannumet Oy. The completely new 9,000 m2 factory combines all current 3 operations into one major unit. The factory will be completed by the beginning of 2021. I want to thank our partner Hannumet Oy for making this project possible, says Mr. Matti Huttunen, CEO of Nordic Rescue Group.

Vema Lift Oy has made some 1,000 fire fighting and rescue platforms in Kaarina, Finland since 1987 and is a well-established brand in the industry. Now under the Nordic Rescue Group ownership, Vema Lift has taken a major step forward for growth. In addition to shorter lead times and improved efficiency the additional space enables Vema Lift to add manufacturing capacity and grow its business. The new site will also have a testing area and a show room. Vema Lift will arrange an in-house exhibition at the site during the opening ceremony. We warmly welcome our customers to visit our new plant next year!

The company employs 120 manufacturing professionals and has vast network of subcontractors. Its Group companies are Saurus Oy and Vema Lift Oy. The new entity Nordic Resscue Group will also have its office at the new Vema Lift facility in Kaarina.
