Finnish move from Chicago Pneumatic
By Lindsay Gale16 September 2015
CE Rental OY has been appointed by Chicago Pneumatic as its authorised dealer in Finland in a move that is intended to target the Finnish rental sector. With nearly 20 years’ experience in the Finnish rental industry and a wide service network covering the whole country, the company will support Chicago Pneumatic by distributing its range of RX hydraulic breakers, RC compactors, compaction plates and hand held hydraulic tools to customers seeking short or long-term hire options.
“We had been looking for prime products to widen our offering for a long time, and decided on Chicago Pneumatic, because it offers high quality, durable and competitively priced construction equipment”, said Kari Halmela, product manager at CE Rental OY. He added: “We have been offering Chicago Pneumatic products for about six months now, which have been very well received so far; with customer feedback being nothing but positive.”
CE Rental is a subsidiary of Mateko Oy, which imports, sells and distributes ground construction equipment. Its operations cover from repair and maintenance to spare parts and user instruction via its four workshops in Espoo, Pirkkala, Oulu and Seinäjoki, and a country-wide service network. Founded in 1996, the company has a turnover of 22 million euros and a team of 30 employees.
