Peikko has extended its commitment to the Australian market by moving to a larger facility of 2,000 m2 located in Yatala, near Brisbane. The new premises allow Peikko to upscale its local manufacturing capability and hold greater levels of stock for its customers. Peikko is also in the process of recruiting for several new roles across Australia in order to even better meet customers’ needs and continue expanding its business and offerings to the Australian market.

Furthermore, Peikko Australia has implemented a change in its leadership: effective 17 June 2021 Mr. Reuben Hanson has been appointed as Managing Director of Peikko Australia Pty Ltd., with a full responsibility for the leadership and development of Peikko’s Australian business.

“We see a clear potential in the Australian market for both precast and cast-in-situ business. Peikko’s innovative offering meets the growing need of the local market for a more efficient and sustainable construction process. The expanded production capability will help serving local customers in a more responsive way”, says Topi Paananen, CEO of Peikko Group Corporation.

“We are pleased about the new leadership with Reuben Hanson and wish him all the best in his new challenge. Reuben will play a key role in meeting the company’s growth goals of becoming the forerunner in the Australian market for precast and cast-in-situ Connections, Deltabeam composite beams and Wind turbine foundation businesses”, comments Michal Horak, Vice President, APAC.
