Hassinen Veljekset Oy, more commonly known as HAVEL, is a Finnish family business with roots in forest machinery contracting for over 50 years. Since 1989, our company has been developing and manufacturing products for various industries as well as private consumers. For over 10 years, we have manufactured heavy-duty wear-resistant tools for machine contractors under the Mechanics product line. The Mechanics product line includes stump grinders, track and chain tools, and recycled rubber products made from used truck tyres. In addition, we manufacture hose guards used for the protection of hydraulic and pneumatic hoses and electrical wires under the brand Spiral, as well as domestic boating and cabining equipment under the brand Ranturi. We have been exporting our products since the 1990s; at present, there are some twenty export destination countries, mainly in Central Europe. All of the products are still manufactured in Ilomantsi, at our own factory.
The brothers Seppo and Timo Hassinen are the driving force behind HAVEL. Even as a little boy, Seppo was keenly interested in machines and their design and construction. Since the age of ten, he dreamed of his own metal workshop. As soon as the opportunity knocked, Seppo realized this dream. The strong background in forest machinery contracting has been useful for understanding customers, and a lot of time has been invested into product development. Today, in addition to the founding brothers Seppo and Timo Hassinen, Havel is owned by Seppo’s children Mika and Suvi. The most important value and the guiding principle of the company is reliability, which is reflected in the high quality of the products, security of supply, and keeping of promises. Each product is manufactured with care, based on decades of professional experience. We continue to develop our products and strive to meet our customers’ needs and expectations. As a result of 30 years of development, we can be proud of our products and be sure of our capability to offer the customers only the best, simple functionality.
