PROJECT MANAGEMENT WITH A TWIST
Grate Finland is broadminded, entrepreneur-driven company. We are not afraid to take on challenges in our own field of expertise. Flexibility and willingness to solve our customers’ challenges is what our day-to-day business is all about.
Grate Finland’s operations are largely based on solid Finnish engineering knowledge, combined with the strong project management skills and exceptional quality of Chinese steel construction. The end result is great quantities of EN-standard adequate structures delivered promptly and punctually anywhere in the world.
REAL LIFE SUCCESS STORY
CEO Kari Salo’s years of experience in steel structure design and installation create a solid foundation for successful projects. This knowledge is combined with Petteri Viinanen’s (major shareholder) solid engineering expertise and project management know-how.
A clear and straight-forward approach, prompt decision-making and no-nonsense atmosphere are features that make Grate Finland a great place to work. Our employees can truly challenge themselves but also have fun at work.
We have developed strongly since 2011, when Kari Salo founded the company and the business started with selling gratings. Around the same time, co-operation with Sysi Ltd’s founder, Petteri Viinanen, started with the first projects, and this partnership has flourished ever since. The step up to the next level was taken in 2013, when the business experienced a remarkable growth and Grate Finland bought the whole operations of Sysi Ltd. In spring 2013, both companies moved to new and more suitable offices in Technopolis, near Helsinki Airport.
MOUNTING THE WORLD
Today, both companies operate in Asia, Central Europe, South America and naturally in Finland. We handle projects in Finnish, Swedish, English, German, Portuguese, Italian and Chinese.
So far, every company that has made the decision to start a project with Grate has been more than happy with our new way of doing things, which has led to mutually profitable and fruitful co-operation.
In the future, Grate Finland, together with its subsidiary Sysi Ltd, will conquer new challenges with its original business concept. Encouraged by our great references and solid know-how, we’re now reaching for even bigger deals and more global business.
