Dealers at Dynaset celebrate three decades in hydraulics

Dynaset's 30th anniversaryIn 2016 Dynaset celebrated its 30th anniversary with its customers, dealers and co-operation partners in Ylöjärvi, Finland. Its annual Dealer Meeting, which included technical training and information about new products, was co-located with an open house event involving factory tours, product and application demos. Dealers and other visitors were impressed with the new products and the event itself.

Dynaset was founded in 1986 by the company’s general manager Reijo Karppinen. The founder, an innovative engineer, had an idea of utilising a hydraulic system of carrier machines for powering generators, magnet generators, welders, power washers and compressors. This “Powered by Hydraulics” theme has been the main principle in Dynaset products ever since.

“Dynaset was established for producing a wide range of hydraulic equipment and applications. There was an obvious need for these products right from the beginning, at least from my engineer perspective. Already then I was confident that these products would be in demand internationally,” said Mr Karppinen on establishing Dynaset.

At the beginning of the 1990s, Karppinen started to look at new markets. Initially, Dynaset exported hydraulic equipment to Sweden and then to the rest of the Europe. It didn’t take too long to spread the word of the benefits of utilising hydraulics and the commpany soon was exporting these ground-breaking products to all over the world. At first Karppinen operated from his garage, but soon Dynaset started to grow and began manufacturing in larger facilities. The company expanded its dealer network, too, to cover all markets.
