Nordic Rescue Group is specialized in rescue vehicles for professional rescuers operating in demanding environments. The company employs 120 manufacturing professionals and has a vast network of subcontractors. Its group companies are Saurus Oy and Vema Lift Oy. Previously both brands have had their own customer bases and operated parallel to each other under the previous ownership. In the new arrangement the companies are working in close co-operation as one entity in product development and marketing. This is to provide customers with a wider range of vehicles and services as well as a substantial increase of manufacturing capacity for larger series of vehicles.
Vema Lift Oy (established in 1989, based in Kaarina) manufactures firefighting and rescue platforms with nearly 1,000 delivered units all over the world. Nordic Rescue Group invests in international growth at Vema Lift by building a completely new 9,200sqm factory in Kaarina, Finland. The plant will start operation at the beginning of 2021. With the new modern facility Vema can shorten its lead times and has more generic capacity. Vema will organize an in-house exhibition in 2021 to introduce the plant and the new product range.
Saurus (established in 1982, based in Jyväskylä) is a well-known brand in Finnish rescue-vehicle production with nearly 2,000 vehicles delivered both in Finland and abroad. Saurus has a strong market position in Finland and the Nordic Countries and the company will further improve its service to these key customers. In addition to its domestic growth the company is seeking further growth with exports in the international market. Saurus is restructuring its manufacturing capabilities in Säynätsalo, Finland for shorter lead times, capacity for larger series of vehicles and maintenance capacity.
