History

The roots of our family business go back over 70 years until the fall of 1944, when Aarne Janhunen (1911 - 1993) founded Aarne Janhunen Oy, a company specializing in auto electrical repair in Tampere, just ten days before the end of the Continuation War. The workshop started on Puutarhakatu in the center of Tampere with a space of 15 square meters, but the following year the expansion forced the company to move to larger premises on Ratinankatu.


Business started to grow rapidly in the years of reconstruction, and already in the mid-1950s Aarne Janhunen Oy expanded its business operations again by establishing Tampereen Maanrakennus Oy (a civil engineering company). In addition, the company opened a spare parts and accessories store on Ratinankatu, where the company operated for more than a quarter of a century.

In 1966, a second generation became involved, when Matti Janhunen (b. 1943) started as a foreman in the company. The following year, it was time for expansion again; with the exception of a spare parts store, the company moved to a newly completed premises in Lakalaiva, south of Tampere – the same place we operate today.


In the 1980s, the focus of business shifted to the current core business of lifting and transportation. The civil engineering business was sold in 1981 and Matti Janhunen Oy was founded two years later. At the same time, the third generation of the Janhunen-family naturally grew into the company: the current CEO, BBA Jussi Janhunen (b. 1971) and automotive and transportation technician Ari Janhunen (b. 1976). Both started working for the company in the 1990s, and at the turn of the 21st century both became shareholders in the company.
