Tehomet X Valmont
Tehomet and Valmont Industries Inc. joined forces in spring 2007. Tehomet became part of the Valmont Group’s Engineered Support Structures segment (ESS). 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 Industries Inc. is divided into four business segments:
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.
