Allu expands into rental machinery business in Finland
Allu, the manufacturer of the Transformer and Processor ranges of attachments, has recently launched a rental division within its home market of Finland. This has enabled countless Finnish companies to enjoy the benefits of the Allu solutions, which has often led to the purchase of the attachment following highly positive experiences...
Allu Finland Oy, which has been manufacturing Allu products for more than thirty years, recently expanded its operations in the rental machinery market in its home market of Finland. This has been done in order to provide Finnish customers with the opportunity to rent a Transformer on a short term basis, thereby benefitting from the unique attributes of the Allu attachments.
Allu has previous experience in the rental equipment business in Germany, where the company has a directly owned subsidiary. In Germany, the rental business has been in operation for many years and has proven to be a viable concept among German contractors, where rental, prior to purchase, is often regularly pursued. “We wanted to provide our customers with a flexible and risk free way to get an Allu product for a short period of time,” explains Marjut Lindroos, Allu’s global marketing manager, concerning the move into equipment rental.
“For new customers, rental operations allow you to familiarize yourself with the equipment before making a purchase decision. This also gives the customer the opportunity to redeem the product at the end of the rental period, thereby enabling the customer to take a risk free test of the product and its various functions. If necessary, Allu service personnel will provide assistance with technical issues, spare parts and accessories. We are a flexible, reliable and secure partner for our customers.
“Currently, there are several different units for rent in different sizes and with different blade options. We can change the sharpening according to the customer's wishes and the mounts are also fitted according to the basic machine. We can also make demonstrations for rental attachments on the customer's site, transforming their specific material,” Marjut concludes.
