RealMachinery Oy, based at Lempäälä in Finland, has expanded with the purchase of Dae-Tek Oy, the Authorised Dealer for the Doosan Heavy and Bobcat product ranges in Finland. RealMachinery, which is the largest earthmoving machinery rental company in Finland, is retaining the Dae-Tek brand, a long-established and successful dealership for both the Doosan and Bobcat ranges with offices in Kerava, Turku and Kuopio. Both RealMachinery and Dae-Tek have stands at the Maxpo Exhibition in Helsinki from 10-12 September 2015, the country’s most important exhibition for construction machinery.
Mika Kahari, Chief Executive Officer for RealMachinery Oy, said: “We are delighted to complete the acquisition of Dae-Tek and to add the Authorised Dealership for the Doosan Heavy and Bobcat brands to our portfolio. With the majority of our rental fleet being Doosan excavators and wheel loaders, it is a perfect fit for both RealMachinery and Dae-Tek and we are excited to add the expertise and talent of all the Dae-Tek staff to play an integral role in our business going forward and helping us to achieve our expansion targets.”
Strong Growth in Finland
Franz Beckmann, Regional Director for Doosan Construction Equipment, said: “We congratulate RealMachinery on its acquisition of Dae-Tek, which we see as a very positive move for the growth of our brands in the Finnish market. Both companies have excellent reputations and have been instrumental in making Doosan Construction Equipment the market leader in Finland. We believe that the new relationship will help bring further success for the Doosan and Bobcat brands in Finland.”
With the added financial strength of the RealMachinery group, Dae-Tek customers will benefit not only from the rental services but also a much wider choice of financing, leasing and insurance solutions offered by the group.
Doosan and Bobcat customers will also be supported by the unmatched parts and servicing network at RealMachinery, with back-up available from the company’s outlets, throughout the day from 7 am to 10 pm as standard throughout Finland. Dae-Tek and RealMachinery can provide customers with a well-established on-site service network, covering everything from emergency repairs to routine maintenance.
Mika Kahari added: “Having represented the Doosan brand for over 25 years, Dae-Tek is one of the best known businesses in the Finnish construction machinery market. In recent years, we have achieved a 35% increase in sales annually and I am confident that the addition of the Dae-Tek team, combined with aggressive marketing and fleet expansion will allow us to grow even further in the Finnish market.”
The Doosan Heavy range comprises crawler and wheeled excavators, wheeled loaders, articulated dump trucks and attachments. The Bobcat range of compact equipment includes skid-steer, compact tracked and all wheel steer loaders, compact excavators, telehandlers and attachments.
