Tehomet X Valmont

Tehomet and Valmont Industries Inc. joined forces in spring 2007. The acquisition expanded Tehomet’s market area and bolstered our ability to provide solutions to our customers’ unique and demanding lighting and traffic infrastructure problems worldwide.

Valmont, a world-leading manufacturer of metal poles

Established in 1946, Valmont Industries Inc. is a world-leading designer and manufacturer of metal poles. Valmont’s headquarters are in Nebraska, USA and the company is listed on the New York Stock Exchange.

In addition to poles, Valmont manufactures telecommunication and power lines for wireless communications and public utilities. Its product range also includes custom light poles and masts, irrigation equipment for agricultural use, and a variety of support structures.

Valmont serves two primary segments — agriculture and infrastructure — with seven markets we serve: Utility, Lighting and Transportation, Telecom, Solar, Coatings, Irrigation and Ag Tech:

Valmont manufactures and surface treats the tubing it requires for making poles. It is the largest company making customized hot dip galvanized products in North America.


Proud of being a Finnish company

Although Valmont acquired the majority of Tehomet’s shares, Tehomet has retained its identity as a Finnish company. The acquisition provided us with new partners from within the Group to implement a variety of different lighting projects.

Thanks to these increased resources, we can offer our Finnish customers an even broader range of custom structures, and will be able to invest even more strongly in developing the smart urban infrastructure of the future. Our sales organization was also greatly bolstered

Thanks to this partnership, we can better focus on our own strength: the manufacture of custom products.  It is important for us to be a local company from Kangasniemi that employs local talent.
