Reaching for the top in access platforms
Established in Turku, Finland, in 1972, Jalo & Jalo is a family company specialising in access platforms. Our recent growth and M&As have made us the Nordics’ largest company renting truck-mounted lifts.
We operate nationwide in Finland, through eight branches. We also have a Swedish subsidiary, Stockholms Höjdliftar, which operates out of Stockholm. Our company employs 85 access platform professionals and our fleet includes 175 different access platforms from small scissor lifts to large truck-mounted lifts.
A decade of strong growth
Jalo & Jalo began its expansion in 2012 when we acquired the access platform rental company Ristokari Oy. The acquisition broadened our product offering by 120 different access platforms. In 2014, we expanded to central Finland through the acquisition of Kymppinostot Oy in Jyväskylä.
We acquired the access platform business of Havator Oy, the largest corporate acquisition at the time for our company, in 2015. Our next significant acquisition took place in 2017 when we took on the 30–80-metre truck-mounted lift business of Janneniska Oy. As a continuation of this acquisition, we bought all of Janneniska Oy’s and Bladefence Oy’s over 80-metre truck-mounted lifts in 2021.
We began our global expansion in 2020 when we bought Sweden’s largest truck-mounted lift company Stockholms Höjdliftar AB.
Our vision is to be the Nordic leader in access platforms.
We will attain our vision through high-quality services and products, which enable us to have a positive impact on our customers’ and partners’ businesses.
In order to serve our customers to the best of our ability, we need to know them and their needs as well as possible. We know where our services are needed and we work tirelessly to bring new and better products and services to our customers.
We serve our customers in all matters related to access platforms, but our core expertise lies in renting truck-mounted lifts with a driver. Access platforms supplied without a driver are also part of our core business, such as boom lifts, scissor lifts and trailer-mounted MEWPs.
