In addition to our four subsidiaries, Europress has extensive operations in Europe, and to some extent in Israel, China, Singapore and Australia, through its network of partners. The expertise and dedication of the Finnish technology company in developing smart waste management have convinced partners and customers around the world.

Export Sales Manager Tommi Rautiainen has represented Europress around the world since spring 2019. His international travel has been replaced mostly by virtual meetings on Teams during the pandemic, but even the massive global disruption has not undermined our exports. Small deals can even turn into huge successes through the most innocent of e-mail enquiries.

Export activities highlight the need and ability of Europress designers and technical experts to address a wide range of customer demands by developing waste management technologies and tailoring waste balers and compactors to suit different markets.

Europress dealers are the best experts in their respective markets, and they are backed up by Europress specialists in product development, manufacturing and design, such as Senior Smart Specialist Ben Mårtens.

Together with Tommi Rautiainen, they are able to provide training to customers and answer technical questions. It is easy for Tommi Rautiainen to agree with the praise of customers when he hears that “Europress is smart, intelligent and capable of managing equipment remotely!”

The pandemic may not have stopped international trade altogether, but it did create its own challenges. The exceptional times have even had some positive effects.

“Companies understand the need for even more advanced circular economy solutions and want to remain competitive responsibly. They are clear about what they want and serious about finding the right suppliers,” says Tommi Rautiainen.

And how did the innocent e-mail enquiry go? A waste management operator in the Baltics approached Europress by e-mail in the first autumn of the pandemic and decided initially to order 20 devices. The customer was subsequently so impressed that they ordered many times more devices at the beginning of 2022. With such high-quality products and respect among our customers, the future certainly looks bright for Europress!
