Established in 1984, Premekon Ltd. began as an engineering company for welded steel structures, but specialised in the beginning of the 90s in the manufacture of industrial service platforms. Design is still the strength of Premekon, and this allows our clients to be provided with easy solutions, such as turnkey delivery. A large part of Premekon’s products were delivered to pulp and paper mills around the world.

Development project of structural solutions and calculation methods, the results of which facilitated optimal structural measuring and compliance demonstration.
Mikko Pölkki, Master’s thesis 2006: Development of the Production of Supporting Frame Structure
In the development project, the focus was in optimising aluminium structures’ production methods. By optimising this, the production’s lead time could be reduced and effectiveness increased.
Joonas Pekkanen, Master’s thesis 2012: Design of Supporting Modular Frame Structure
The Master’s thesis’s focus was to develop a functioning modular steel frame structure with basic solutions especially for big and uniform working platform structures.
Ville Aitta, Master’s thesis 2013: Robotic Welding of Thin Walled Tubes
The aim of the thesis was to clarify the possible uses of robotised welding in the production of industrial rails and enhancing its effectiveness.
Tuomas Liukkonen, Master’s thesis 2014: Requirements for Metals and Welded Structures in Arctic Conditions
The Master’s thesis examined the special requirements for welded structures in the Arctic regions of Norway and Russia both in terms of production and certification.
Improving the business process of the employees and the office and identifying unprofitable work. The aim was to enhance the working of the employees and reduce idle time and delays resulting from it.
