All indications say that the railway industry’s boom is on an upswing. The green transition and urbanisation are brightening the prospects of low-emission public transport. The Finnish sealing and gasket manufacturer FinnProfiles has decided to focus its export efforts on serving the industry that meets all the characteristics of a megatrend.
FinnProfiles has a new strategy: focusing the company’s active export efforts entirely on the rail industry and related projects. According to Jarno Halme, Business Area Manager at FinnProfiles for the rolling stock industry, this strategic decision is well-founded.
“Export requires a lot of resources, so it should not be done randomly. Everything is global and very competitive today, so you really must be able to create added value for your customers. For this reason, we focus on exports in the sector that we know best and where our company’s strengths truly stand out,” Halme says.
He lists material know-how and profile design expertise as the company’s competitive advantages. Both of these allow the company to support the customer’s own product development team to find the best-possible result.
