Mechanical Engineering


The industry’s enterprises employ 125,000 people in Finland, making it the largest employer in the technology industry. The sector has a turnover of EUR 24.4 billion.


Successful industry products include cruise liners, engines for ships and power plants, pulp and paper machines, rock and mineral processing equipment, lifts, hoists and cranes, forestry and agricultural machinery, and of course the orange-handled Fiskars scissors.


Companies in this sector know how to apply new technologies rapidly to customer-driven products and production processes. It is increasingly popular for companies to form cooperation networks that produce total solutions tailor-made to meet the customers’ individual needs. This allows each company to focus on their core competence, and success creates more jobs in subcontractor companies, too.
