The roots of our company go back more than 70 years to autumn 1944, when Aarne Janhunen (1911 - 1993) founded an auto electrical repair shop under his own name in Tampere, southern Finland. Workshop operations began in a small garage in the city’s downtown, but a year later the rapidly-expanding business required larger premises in nearby street.

Over the next decade the business activities of Aarne Jahnunen Oy continued to grow rapidly and in the mid-1950s the founder expanded its business activities again: this time by establishing an excavation company subsidiary. The company also opened a spare parts and accessories store in Ratinankatu street.

In the year 1966 the second generation of the family joined the business as Matti Janhunen (b. 1943) started working as a foreman in company’s diesel repairs department. The following year it was time for expansion again; all activities except the spare parts store were transferred to new Lakalaiva premises in southern Tampere, where we still are today.

During the 1980s the nature of the business shifted to its current focus on lifting and transport. The excavation business was sold in 1981 and Kuljetusliike Matti Janhunen Oy founded two years later. In the 1990s the third generation of Janhunen family started careers in the company as the current Managing Director, Jussi Janhunen (b. 1971), and automotive and transportation engineer, Ari Janhunen (b. 1976), gradually took over and in the 2000s became company shareholders.
