Kuismanen (M.Sc.Eng.) will be responsible for both new and current partnerships. Tamturbo’s goal is to scale up its business operations to a global level by selling full compressor packages as private label products alongside Tamturbo-branded compressor packages. In addition to this, the company sells OEM core components and control software to other compressor manufacturers, which utilise their existing sales and maintenance channels in their respective market areas on a global scale.

 

Tamturbo made its first OEM, private label and distribution agreements in 2016, leading to the sale and marketing of compressors in five countries. Kuismanen’s duties entail establishing, developing and supporting Tamturbo’s distribution partnerships globally.

 

He is looking forward to the future challenges with enthusiasm and ambition.

 

“It’s great to be involved in building a unique story like Tamturbo. These kinds things don’t come along too often anywhere in the world, so I simply couldn’t let the opportunity pass me by. It’s an honour to be part of Tamturbo’s amazing team and help take Finnish technology to the global markets”; Kuismanen declares cheerfully.

 

Multidisciplinary expertise for international growth

 

Kuismanen joins the Tamturbo team from Robit Oyj, where he served as the director of the Down-the-Hole business area and member of the global management team. Before that, he worked for Konecranes Oyj for six years under the title General Manager, Business Factory, Group Strategy and Technology, for example.

 

According to Tamturbo’s CEO Timo Pulkki, Kuismanen’s contribution to the company is wide-ranging expertise and valuable long-term experience.

 

“The discussions I had with Kuismanen over the past months solidified the impression that he is exactly the right choice for our company in this exhilarating development phase. He brings to Tamturbo his considerable experience in handling international industry customers and developing global business. In addition to this, his ability to create new business models for traditional is impressive. This is why I’m very happy about his decision to join us in building an oil-free, energy-efficient and maintenance-free future for the global compressed air business. We warmly welcome Kuismanen to our team”, Pulkki says.

 

Tamturbo’s vision is to become an independent, medium-sized compressor manufacturer with a turnover exceeding €100 million by 2022.
