Succesfully launched last year alongside TMK Factorys birthday the TMK Machinery Days will be held even bigger this year.
This year events main partner is Jari-Pekka Hankasalmi gas station celebrating their 30th birthday (year later because of corona). With their help we are able to organize a live concert featuring Joel Hallikainen and Kristiina Brask and a firework show.

Responsible for work demonstrations are Metsäkuutio (using Ponsse Scorpion & Buffalo, TMK 300 Tree Shear & MultiGrab), Janne Leikas (using Valtra T & Kesla 316T + TMK 200 Tree Shear), Nosto- ja kuljetuspalvelu Ruuska (using crane truck & shear with a saw), chipping demonstration is done by Myllyn Mies and A-Haketus and on a plot next to the factory Versowood is having their demonstration (using Ponsse).
The event starts at 12 0’clock with TMK’s CEO Tenho Koponen giving welcome speech and presentation of exhibitors.
Demonstrations can be enjoyed throughout the day. There are going to be demos on our factory yard on 1 pm and 3:30 pm and on the plot next to the factory 2 pm and 4:30 pm.
At 6 pm the event moves from outside to inside the factory where Joel Hallikainen and Kristiina Brask are performing live and the day culminates to the fireworks show at 7:30 pm.
During the event first 500 people get Sibylla’s hot Dogs and Coca-Cola Zeros at 1 pm and first 500 people in Jari-Pekka cabinet receive cake and coffee. Now sure is a great time to be early!

The yearly video of our years story is now out for 2020!
In this video you can see what our 2020 was like, of course presented by using some TMK humour!
Friday 30th of October 2020 at TMK’s Birthdayparty we celebrated the start of our own factory and production a year ago and announced two completely new products. TMK is jumping into a new market with TMK Multigrab.
TMK Multigrab is suitable for a wide range of tasks. Demolition grab, sorting grab, root shear, stump puller, rake – you name it! You can read more about TMK Multigrab at https://tmktreeshear.com/multigrab/
The TMK Turbo evo2 cylinder, which had been under development for two years, also saw the light of day. TMK Turbo evo2 is a more advanced version of the patented TMK Turbo, which has gained great popularity around the world. The TMK Turbo evo2 increases work efficiency when the small and large cylinders work together without the delay in the previous Turbo cylinder, making the cylinder extremely fast. The Turbo evo2 is also more powerful with the enlargement of a larger cylinder.
At TMK’s Birthday Party, in addition to product announcements, we also saw amazing work shows, made live streams on Facebook, went on factory tours, got acquainted with a wide range of operations, from managing work and equipment to wood chipping, and of course ate a birthday cake. The party was attended by a lot of people and the atmosphere was quite warm, despite the slightly cold weather.
Thanks to all participants.
TMK BIRTHDAY & PRODUCT LAUNCHES
The long wait is soon over as the years first expo starts on thursday this week in Jämsä, Finland.
We participate in FinnMETKO 2020 with full power. We have the largest collection of shears and machines in our stand this year, so there is plenty to see!
We welcome you to the stand 829 on 3.-5.9.2020.
We are asking you to join to the fight against COVID-19 – with style!
We all have felt the effects of the pandemic roaming around the globe. TMK is also greatly affected by the situation, but we wanted to do something about it.
On April 1st we made an April fools joke of making a pink Tree Shear and people got excited.
So we put our heads together with Ritchie Bros. and catched two birds with one stone.
TMK 300 “Pink Edition” is now on charity auction. We will donate 50% of the selling price to WHO’s COVID-19 response fund (learn more from here: https://covid19responsefund.org/) and Ritchie Bros. will donate the buyers fee to a charity of their choosing to fight Corona virus.
Now is a unique once in a lifetime change to get yourself a pink TMK 300 shear and also help the cause at the same time. ?
We also highly encourage everyone to help fight this pandemic by donating to effective charities if possible, but at least by acting according the local recommendations to help reduce the virus from spreading. ?
TMK 300 the “Pink Edition” auction ends on wednesday 29.4.2020.
Start bidding now!
No worries: TMK Tree Shear works normally during a coronavirus pandemic.
We want to emphasize now that TMK is doing the job as usual and tree shears are delivered to customers as normal. New facilities and freight partners allow extremely fast delivery times to customers. (However, we do not supply toilet paper.)
Some of our people are already doing most of the work remotely, and they have switched to working full-time from home, but that doesn’t affect our company’s reachability. You can contact us by phone, email, website, social media channels and smoke signals.
So now is a good time to invest in a high-quality tree shear and head towards the forest. There is no danger of being exposed to the corona when you snap trees by yourself in the woods.
Its time for celebration!
The Grand Opening of the TMK factory will be celebrated on Friday, November 29, 2019. The factory doors are opened at 12h and the actual opening ceremony will begin at 12:30. Building project began in March, and since then there has been Factory project updates in social media. Next week’s Factory Project update is the 17th and the final one. Check out the videos on TMK Tree shear Facebook or Youtube! However, the picture never beats reality, so next Friday you can experience the TMK factory live in Hankasalmi: Welcome!
In the Opening we can hear greetings from Matti Mäkinen, Mayor of Hankasalmi, and Tuomo Silvasti, a friend of Tenho. The keynote speaker will be Arto Tiitinen, CEO of Isku-Yhtymä Oyj. The man behind the shears – Tenho himself – will share about the investment decision. TMK dealers from 13 different countries bring the international atmosphere in the celebration day. Overall the Factory Grand Opening will be packed with the authentic TMK family vibe.
The inaugural ceremony will be followed by a banquet of coffee, and then there are guided tours for exploring the newly rugged spaces.
Today we celebrated the factory’s topping out traditionally with pea soup and cake.
Everyone who works at the site was invited and we even got the municipal manager Matti Mäkinen and the nearby gas stations CEO Jari-Pekka Koponen to come and celebrate with us.
Next we are able to pour the concrete to the floor and after that we will get the walls up and move on the inside.
TMK hired two new employees at the start of the year to strengthen our continuosly growing market. José Fernández and Robert Kurki started working with permanent contracts in early January 2019.
José has a strong background and years of experience in export and took the challenge of being responsible for building our new South-American market. Currently José is also responsible for Spain, France, Italy and Portugal in addition to South-America.
Robert stepped in to fill the big boots left by Markus Särkkä, who continued on his path towards new challenges. Robert has previously worked with sales in telecommunications and at marketing with hotels- & restaurants in domestic market. As of now, he is responsible for our sales and resellers & importers in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherlands, Belgium and Canada.

TMK keeps growing and today we celebrated the 1500th TMK 300 shear in our factory Multimek.
TMK 300 is the product that this company has been built on, so we were very proud to hand over the 1500th shear to our Norweigan Importer Richard W. Naas from Landbruksteknikk AS.
We also wanted to recognize Ville Pietikäinen from Multimek Oy with “The most improved worker of 2018” award, for his hard work and good communication towards us in the factory!
We had the honor to have the factory workers to celebrate with us.
Here are some more pictures from the event.
