Our Values

Ferroplan’s History

Over four decades, Ferroplan Oy has evolved into an international company, generating employment opportunities in Finland and offering specialized conveyor solutions worldwide. Founded in 1983 under the name of its owner, Pentti Patosalmi, the company initially operated as an industrial equipment designer. Starting in his garage, Patosalmi manufactured turntables and hot water tank heads, laying the groundwork for the company’s operations.

By 1986, the company had relocated to the former Orimattila cultural hall and hired its first permanent employee. Two years later, in 1988, the company was rebranded as Ferroplan, transitioning to a limited partnership. While initially producing conveyor rollers and parts for paper machines, conveyors soon became the primary focus.

In 1991, Ferroplan moved to the Sampola industrial area in Orimattila, establishing its own 1,000 m² facility with office space. In 1994, the company became a limited liability company and commenced a vigorous investment in product development. Recognized for its success, Ferroplan Oy was named the company of the year in Orimattila in 1996.

In 2005, Ferroplan’s sister company, SIA Ferroplan, was established in Jelgava, Latvia, expanding the company’s operations into international markets. That same year, Ferroplan Oy’s turnover exceeded five million euros for the first time.

In 2012, the company continued its successful growth trajectory, reaching a turnover of nine million euros.

By 2013, Ferroplan employed approximately 50 staff members, and production facilities had expanded to a total of 4,200 square meters. In 2018, the design and construction of the FerroPower energy production facility began, opening new opportunities for the company, particularly in the environmental sector. In 2022, the facility obtained environmental permits, paving the way for market introduction. In 2023, Ferroplan’s turnover exceeded 15 million euros, highlighted by an approximately 8-million-euro conveyor delivery to Metsä Group. Additionally, in 2024, Ferroplan GmbH was established in Munich, Germany, reinforcing the company’s position in international markets and supporting its vision for global expansion.
