Steel service centre, machine shop KKR Steel Oy
While most machine shops have outsourced services and built
production chains of various subcontractors, Riikonen has acted the other way
around. The company has grown to a modern service machine shop, completing even
the largest subassemblies, from the beginning till the end, using its own
efficient units in Joensuu. The over 30-year-old machine repair shop Riikonen
Oy, acting on the same site, continues as it has before, and the units of the
service machine shop have been combined in the limited company established in
2014, called KKR Steel Oy.
Teräs Riikonen is, in some ways, just like a kind of comic strip hero, eagerly performing miracles with metal - without a red magic cloak, without big words and the famous heroic deeds. An everyday hero can also be found fronting a continually expanding family business.
