The mobile crane business of company Espoon Nosturikeskus Oy Pohjanväre has been sold to Sjöman Helsingin Nosturit Oy on 30.5.2018. In the same context Sjöman is selling their personnel lifts to Pohjanväre.

This mutual transaction aims to remove competitive conditions between the two companies and to develop both companies sales activities in future cooperation.

The purchase strengthens Sjöman’s position in crane business especially in the western Uusimaa -area. In the future Pohjanväre will focus their business on rental and servicing of personnel lifts as well as other construction equipment.

Both companies have operated as pioneers in their branch. Due to the history, the business culture and concept in serving their customers is very similar in both companies. By this transaction and future cooperation, the companies seek for common base for long term developing of their operations in a customer oriented way.

“We want to focus on the business area, which during the past years has grown most in a natural way. We, however want to ensure, that our crane customers will also in the future get skilled and personal service through us. Sjöman was a natural choice as a partner for us”, states the Managing Director and entrepreneur of Pohjanväre-companies Jari Pohjanväre.

”In this transaction one plus one is more than two” says the Managing Director and entrepreneur of Sjöman Helsingin Nosturit Oy Jan Sjöman.
