Peikko Group continues its expansion in Europe and has established a new sales and technical support team in Minsk, Belarus. Peikko BelRus FLLC will serve customers in the pre-cast industry as well as to develop the sales of Deltabeam frame concept with Belarusian construction companies.
During 2010 Peikko has already supplied concrete connections and Deltabeams to major projects in Belarus. One of the biggest projects where Peikko has been involved has been the shopping mall "LIDO Minsk" via a Lithuanian partner. The decision to establish a sales and technical support team in Minsk was a natural continuation to serve the existing customers locally and find new customers and partnerships. At the beginning the operations include sales and technical support; however, there are already plans for warehousing and other activities.
"Peikko is ready to introduce modern and sophisticated construction products to market which is growing in demand for volume and quality of construction. Peikko is also the first one in our field to have local presence in the country. We are happy to have already experienced personnel to join our local Belarusian team and to take care for our new projects in the area", says Topi Paananen, CEO of Peikko Group Corporation
