The Ambassador of Finland, Mrs. Paivi Luostarinen, recently visited the Norfolk premises of Avant Tecno UK to officially open its new showroom.

Finnish company Avant manufactures a wide range of compact, 4-wheel drive machines which can be fitted with a choice of some 200 different attachments to undertake tasks from cutting grass and digging holes to handling loose materials and stacking pallets.

Commenting on the event, managing director Raimo Ala-Korpi said: “The new facility is another step in our expansion plans for the UK and will enable us to showcase our range of compact tool carriers and attachments to their best advantage and allow us to further improve our regular dealer, hire partner and operator training sessions.”
