Kesla participated in the FinnMETKO exhibition in Jämsä, Finland, from September 1st to September 3rd 2022. FinnMETKO is one of the largest forestry and heavy machinery events held in the Nordic countries, with plenty of both Finnish and international visitors.
Kesla's stand at the event exhibited a wide range of new machine innovations, offered an opportunity to meet experts, and organized activities for visitors in the form of live music and meet-and-greets.
As usual, a comprehensive fleet of existing products and new machinery was brought to Kesla's exhibition stand. All three business areas – logging equipment, tractor equipment and truck and industrial cranes – were represented at the exhibition. A particularly attention-grabbing novelty was the KESLA 325T tractor loader, as well as the new KESLA third generation RH harvester heads.
Visitors were able to test out the new KESLA 325T tractor loader under the surveillance of Kesla's experts.
Kesla's harvester heads created interest.
Apart from KESLA products and sales, Kesla's exhibition stand also housed brochures and small merchandise, such as sweets and key chains. In addition, Kesla’s stand included an exclusive Dealer Lounge, where customers, invited guests and staff could go and discuss business if needed. Invited guests had arrived from Japan, Sweden, the Czech Republic and Great Britain, among others.
Kesla had also organized activities for visitors: on Thursday September 1st, Finland's Strongest Man Mika Törrö and Youtuber Metsa-Man were present.
