Kilkanen Oy

From a single item to a whole product

Customers often ask us if we know how, or are we able to manufacture, one or another special item. We find it difficult to say no, because the urge to find solutions is the nature of our company. Our proven track record and production of thousands of completely diverse parts for our customers, proves that we always find a feasible and cost-efficient solution.

Some of the items we produce as individual products, some in large batches. More and more we also delivering entire assemblies.

Diverse production requires efficient preparation

Production of thousands of different products and finding solutions to customers' problems requires continuous internal development. We place a high value on productivity and our strategy is based on “Productivity as a Product”. This has encouraged us to keep investing in machines and programs, which significantly help to minimize the setup period and shorten the lead time.

Competence comes from professional expertise and a proven track record

The latest technology is of no use if there are not professionals working in the company. Our employees have both the interest and the opportunity to learn new technologies and to participate in the development as we optimize the manufacturing methods for our customers’ products. Our employees have extensive and diverse experience in machining, and genuine interest in further developing our manufacturing processes.

Quality is a result of the daily activities: manufacturing products with accurate measurements, precisely as shown in drawings, is the responsibility of each of our employee.

We are the partners of the designer

Manufacturing technologies are rapidly changing - therefore we are always ready and available to work with our customers - to determine the best possible way forward. Brainstorming the project together with the customer yields better results and optimized ways to manufacture. Product development is especially important in cases of complex or demanding parts or components.

In the midst of an energy cluster - surrounded by highly skilled experts

Vaasa is a small town, but the companies in the area are world-class operators in the energy sector. A large hub has emerged in the city and its neighbourhoods, where companies have specialized in the production technologies of its own field. The companies are engaged in close collaboration, with each focusing on its core knowhow. Each company invests in the newest technology and skills within its niche. The different companies in the energy cluster can together ensure top quality production throughout a wide range of energy related products. The energy cluster also fosters green values: environmental footprints can be substantially reduced for example from reduced needs for transportation and packaging. Kilkanen is part of Leinolat Group, where subsidiaries are part of this extensive energy network. In its production processes, Kilkanen utilizes the expertise of the Group and experts from other companies of the energy cluster.
