Bellmer acquires the project business of Vaahto Paper Technology in Finland
Bellmer has acquired Vaahto Group Plc Oyj’s paper machinery technology and project business. Vaahto’s paper machinery business is focussed on Scandinavia, Russia and China. By establishing a strong presence in Finland and Sweden and increasing resources in Russia and China, it creates a good platform for further growth. Vaahto Paper Technology Oy is acknowledged as a leading headbox specialist for medium and large paper machines. Its patent-protected know¬how will broaden Bellmer’s knowledge and reference base. Vaahto has undertaken more than 200 major rebuilds and deliveries in the last 20 years. By serving these customers through the newly-formed “Bellmer Vaahto Paper Machinery Oy” Bellmer will also reinforce its aftermarket position.

The new company will employ former Vaahto employees at 2 sites in Finland. The sales and service organization as well as the production of large headboxes will be sited in Hollola (approximately 100 km from Helsinki), while engineering and automation will be Tampere (some 120 km from Hollola).

The acquisition offers the following advan¬tages for our business partners:

1. Existing Vaahto customers will have full access to Bellmer group’s expertise.

2. Existing Vaahto customers have the reassurance of a longterm partner for spare parts.

3. Existing Bellmer customers will benefit from even stronger support in the forming section thanks to Vaahto’s patented headbox technology.
