Minister of Transport and Communications Anne Berner visited once again Veekmas Ltd. This time Minister Berner and Member of Parliament Hannu Hoskonen observed how gravel road rehabilitation is made correctly and cost-effectively. First in the demonstration the central ridge was cut away. The second step was to recover gravel material back to the road from the ditch bank. The final part of the demonstration included shaping the road surface with correct inclinations in both directions. The Minister was further convinced how significant a motor grader is in gravel road rehabilitation and maintenance.
Veekmas Svenska AB moves to own new premises in Bålsta. The new building is located by the side of highway E18 less than 50 km from Stockholm. The whole spare parts stock in Uddevalla is moved to Bålsta. The moving to new premises is planned to be scheduled in weeks 38 and 39 which may cause delays in spare parts order deliveries. We thus hope that our customers attempt to order urgent spare parts before or after the moving.
Our long term Technical Manager Zbigniew Kolakowski has retired from our subsidiary Veekmas Svenska AB. We want to thank him for the past years and wish him all the best in his retirement. Zbigniew’s work with the sales in Sweden will be continued by Kari Turunen – who grew up in Sweden although he has a Finnish name – in cooperation with the personnel of Veekmas Svenska and our Finnish team. We warmly welcome Kari to our Swedish team.
