The success story of this Sotkamo-based enterprise began in 1971. A double-sided ditcher, invented by the founder of the company, Reino Meriläinen, was the original inspiration behind the business. Unprejudiced product development made Suokone into a pioneer in its field. In the 1990s, a new success product rose alongside the traditional peat machinery, namely, the crusher. This multi-function device opened up worldwide markets to Suokone. Today, Suokone machinery is in use in all continents, and the company is regularly supplying its products to more than 20 countries. This nationally acclaimed engineering workshop has won many invention and enterprise-related prizes.
Suokone Ltd is an engineering workshop specializing in the manufacture of peat machinery and crushers. Suokone products are known for their durability and efficiency. The machinery developed for the demanding conditions of peat production and the short, but intensive production season and the skills acquired through its development have also utilised in other sectors, such as soil preparation and road management.
