Oy Woikoski Ab has heightened its position in the welding industry following a collaboration with welding service provider and fellow Finnish corporation ProWeld Finland Oy.
Under the cooperation, Finland’s oldest industrial gas business will be able to offer all gases, consumables, machines, services and technical support related to the welding industry.
Financial details of the agreement were not revealed, but the goal of the collaboration is to provide benefits and added value to Woikoski’s customers in the developing welding sector.
It is understood that this alliance will greatly contribute to increasing the sales of the German EWM welding machines and consumables, and welding services on the whole, across Finland.
Woikoski’s Sales Director, Jussi Rissanen, enthused, “There is no other company in Finland that can offer such a comprehensive range of services and products to the welding industry. We want to make the acquisition of machines, accessories and services simple and cost-efficient, and now we can do this by offering one-stop shop services.”
A press release signified, “Woikoski strives to be a full-service partner for the welding industry, and the new collaboration presents a major step towards reaching this goal. Thanks to the collaboration with ProWeld, Woikoski’s expertise in welding technology rises to a new level.”
Oy Woikoski Ab, Finland’s oldest industrial and medical gas supplier, could slash employment and close offices after it announced the beginning of co-operation negotiations following unstable market conditions.
Haun Welding Supply Inc., a US-based welding equipment merchant, has expanded its presence in the state of New York after acquiring two firms in the region.
