- Distributor: Fincumet Container Oy
- Location: Finland
- Supplied By: LSM
Fincumet Container Oy is Finland’s leading supplier of goods in the waste management industry. They offer waste compactor balers and sought a new waste distributor to partner with.
Fincumet Container was facing challenges with their existing baler supplier, with low margins and limited rental opportunities impacting revenue. These commercial problems were alongside a number of other supplier issues they needed to overcome. Challenges included:
- Limited rental opportunities
- Poor design caused negative customer feedback
- A limited range of options for customers
- Customer questions unanswered
- Lack of sales and marketing support
- High transport costs
These combined factors pointed to a change in baler supplier as the simplest solution for restoring Fincumet Container’s competitive edge.
Fincumet Container decided to provide customers with a new product line of waste compactors and balers. Fincumet Container built the waste compactors in their own factor, but they wanted a partner with a strong, reliable product line for waste balers. Product manager, Mikko Laisi, consulted with LSM to learn how their expertise could support Fincumet Container and determine the potential sales and revenue they would generate through working together. Fincumet Container visited LSM’s facility to test the machines and meet with engineers, and a distributor agreement was formed. In 2022 Fincumet Container selected LSM as their new supplier of baler equipment.
