Sari Kemppainen, Export Assistant, Logistics
"I work in the logistics department as export assistant, meaning that I look after deliveries of new tractors to other countries.
Valtra is a trustworthy employer. The industry went through a lot of turmoil in past decades, but recently the trend has been very stable. Valtra also offers many of the benefits of a major employer.”
Pekka Mailas, Transmission Expert, Engineering Centre
Prototype technician Pekka Mailas works on future technologies everyday at Valtra’s engineering centre. Valtra’s transmission expert has also travelled around the world.
“in 1985 I spent half a year touring Eastern Africa servicing transmissions. Back then we had a tractor plant in Tanzania. In 1993 I joined the Valtra Shell Pulling Team as a mechanic, which means I get to attend tractor pulling events throughout Europe. Tractor pulling is both my job and my hobby,” Mailas admits.
“We have a great transmission team at the engineering centre. I enjoy working here.”
Mailas also appreciates the benefits of working for a major employer.
“Valtra’s health fund, financial services, stability and even employee canteen are all essential benefits that are taken care of well. The affordable and high-quality canteen is particularly appreciated on a day-to-day basis.”
Being a large company, Valtra also offers a wide range of opportunities to switch tasks, see the world and advance in your career. “Valtra is a relatively big company by itself, and it is also part of AGCO. For skilled and international people with language skills, the doors are open for a variety of tasks around the world.”
