Mantsinen began as a logistic services provider for the forestry industries of Finland and in Russia. This business is still an important part of the Mantsinen operation and the company handles about 25 million tons of round wood and other bulk materials every year. Over the years Mantsinen has loaded and unloaded over 10 million rail cars and trucks – an achievement few companies in Finland can match.
This operational background gave Mantsinen a strong end user perspective when the company begun production of hydraulic material handlers in the late 1990s. Since then, several applications have been found in ports, industrial environments and terminals. Mantsinen material handling machines transport coal and other dry bulk, scrap metal as well as finished metal products. Round wood and the finished forestry products and other materials handled by Mantsinen. New applications are generated continuously to meet customer demands.
Today, Mantsinen is an international company with a strong local perspective. Operations are divided into two business units – material handlers and logistic services. Logistic services are provided in both Finland and Russia – we aim to be the most respected partner for outsourcing operations at wood, scrap yards or terminals. Material handlers are manufactured at Ylämylly, North-Karelia, Finland and are delivered worldwide thanks to our extensive partner network.
Mantsinen remains a family-owned company. Veli Mantsinen continues as the Chairman of the Board and the next generation has committed to continue the family legacy. Mia Mantsinen is currently Vice President of Material Handling Machinery unit with Mikko Mantsinen as Service Manager of Logistic Services unit. Alongside their operational roles both Mia and Mikko are on the board of directors.
