Tampereen Konepajat Oy Is Investing in Procurement

Over the years, Tampereen Konepajat Oy has grown to a size range where the importance of procurement has grown. One third of the EUR 40 million turnover is from procurement related to production, products and general maintenance of operations in several locations. In order to maintain high-quality operations, Tampereen Konepajat Oy has decided to strengthen its procurement activities.

Tampereen Konepajat Oy operates e.g. in accordance with ISO9001, ISO14001 and ISO45001 certified standards.

1.2.2021 Teemu Kapulainen (46 years old), who has more than 25 years of experience in the construction industry, took up the new position of procurement director. The experience of the early years was gained from the job of a site engineer in coordinating procurement.

As experience gained, responsibility increased for procurement development tasks and later for division level procurement responsibilities. Recent years in the construction industry included product development, productization and standardization together with various partners.

“When I started at Tampereen Konepajat Oy, I entered the world of engineering works, which seems to be very interesting and versatile. The parent company operates in many industries and the group companies manufacture and develop their own products. Subcontracting services are a significant part of the parent company’s net sales, including e.g. assembly to external customers as well its own group companies. This ensures flexible manufacturing growth as sales increases. In connection with the development of procurement, there are many of the same elements and features in the construction and engineering industries that can be utilized. For this reason too, I feel that my role in the growing business environment is significant ”- Teemu Kapulainen, procurement director.
