Agile and forward-looking family business

Our motto,
‘Finnish expertise from the rockiest fields of Finland’, captures our philosophy and operations in a nutshell.
PEL-tuote Oy’s premises are located in Rantasalmi, nestled among the surrounding lakes and fields.

Rocky fields and rolling terrain create a demanding test environment for our products right outside our factory doors. Top-notch components and expert staff with profound understanding of the agricultural sector ensure optimal performance and reliable operation of the products.

In Finland, we sell our machines directly to farmers, except in Lapland, where sales are handled by Lakkapää Oy. Outside of Finland we cooperate with our trusted dealers. We currently export our products to more than 50 countries, with approximately half of our turnover coming from exports.

In 2017, PEL-tuote acquired a significant share in Tume-Agri Oy, which manufactures and markets agricultural machinery for sowing and soil cultivation. The products are marketed under Tume and Hankmo, which are among the oldest and best-known brands in their field in Finland, and sold to final customers in more than 20 countries in Europe and Asia. In Finland, Tume-Agri machines are sold by PEL-tuote in the eastern part of the country, while in other parts the distribution is handled directly from the Tume-Agri factory in Turenki.
