Dinolift & Rotator – 40 years of partnership

Current year is for Dinolift and its Finnish dealer Rotator Oy a great milestone in their 40 years successful partnership. In the late 70’ the market for drainage machines was declining and Dinolift – those days named Kurpan Konepaja – was starting the production of aerial work platforms called DINO. At the same time also Rotator was looking for new business opportunities and the innovative entrepreneurs Mauno Kurppa and Toni Virkkunen found out they had same ideas of working at height. Cooperation between the companies started and the rest is Finnish aerial work platform history.

Sharing common goals and working very closely together have been characteristic for the partnership of Dinolift and Rotator from the very beginning. Safe and reliable machines together with the professional after sales services play an important role for both companies and has provided the basis for the successful long-term partnership. Another key factor is the desire to further develop the products based on the customer feedback as well as the shared interest on innovations. To mark these common visions and the successful cooperation Dinolift has made a donation for the development of future battery technology.

University of Turku strengthens the research of engineering and this summer it was granted the right to expand its educational range with Master’s Degree Programmes in Mechanical Engineering and Material Technology. “Dinolift Oy wants to support the University of Turku in its role to increase the vitality and attractiveness of the region by donating 4000 euros to create a new professorship of battery technology”, says Veli-Matti Savo, Commercial Director of Dinolift. “Our strategic goal is to be the world’s best manufacturer of lightweight MEWPs and we will need lots of expertise and new knowledge in developing further our product family.”

Mika Hannula, Director of Turku Science Park and Professor of University of Turku: ”Dinolift’s donation is a great evidence of the strong willingness of the companies in Turku business region to further strengthen the research and education of engineering.”
