New strategy for Ursviken Group, New CEO for Pivatic

01/08/2021

The Board of Directors has initiated a number of actions to boost the development of the Ursviken Group. The aim of the strategy is to make the best possible use of the strengths and potential of the two industrial entities of the Group, Ursviken Technology and Pivatic, and to strengthen our competitive position in the markets.

As a concrete step in this strategy, Mr. Jan Tapanainen has been nominated as CEO of Pivatic Oy. He will report directly to the board of the Ursviken Group. Mr. Tapanainen has over 17 years of international experience in the sheet metal machine tools industry. Last five years he has worked with companies subcontracting and manufacturing industrial products.

Mr. Mika Virtanen and the management team of Pivatic as well as Mr. Jamie Sims of Ursviken Inc will report to Mr. Tapanainen. Mr. Tomas Johansson will focus on his role as CEO of Ursviken Technology AB.

During autumn 2020, the strategies of Ursviken and Pivatic have been updated and both companies are looking for significant growth after the Covid-19 epidemic. According to the new strategy, Pivatic is developing new innovative solutions for selected business segments to offer their customers fast return on their investments, ensuring first-class customer satisfaction with strong project management and product lifetime aftersales services. In the new strategy, the company will increase attention to personnel development to support the growth of the coming years and will focus on improve efficient deliveries of the systems.

These changes became effective on 4th of January, 2021.


Hallitus on käynnistänyt useita toimia Ursviken-konsernin kehityksen edistämiseksi. Strategian tavoitteena on hyödyntää konsernin kahden teollisen yksikön, Ursviken Technologyn ja Pivaticin, vahvuuksia ja potentiaalia parhaalla mahdollisella tavalla sekä vahvistaa kilpailuasemaamme markkinoilla.

Konkreettisena askeleena tässä strategiassa, Jan Tapanainen on nimitetty Pivatic Oy: n toimitusjohtajaksi. Hän raportoi suoraan Ursviken-konsernin hallitukselle. Jan Tapanaisella on yli 17 vuoden kansainvälinen kokemus ohutlevytyöstökoneista ja -järjestelmistä. Viimeisen viiden vuoden ajan hän on toiminut johtavissa asemissa sopimusvalmistus- ja omia tuotteita valmistamissa teollisissa yrityksissä.

Pivatic Oy:n General Manager Mika Virtanen ja johtoryhmä sekä yhdysvaltalaisen Ursviken Inc.:n General Manager Jamie Sims raportoivat jatkossa Jan Tapanaiselle. Tomas Johansson keskittyy rooliinsa Ursviken Technology AB:n toimitusjohtajana.

Syksyn 2020 aikana Pivaticin ja Ursvikenin strategiat on päivitetty, ja yhtiöt hakevat tulevina vuosina merkittävää kasvua Covid-19-epidemian jälkeen. Pivaticin uudistetun strategian mukaisesti yhtiö kehittää uusia, innovatiivisia ratkaisuja valituille liiketoimintasegmenteille tarjotakseen asiakkailleen sijoitetun pääoman nopean tuoton. Pivatic varmistaa ensiluokkaisen asiakastyytyväisyyden vahvalla projektinhallinnalla ja tuotteiden elinkaaren aikaisilla palveluilla. Uudistetussa strategiassa yhtiö lisää panostuksiaan henkilöstön kehittämiseen tukeakseen seuraavien vuosien kasvua sekä keskittyy parantamaan projektien tehokasta valmistusta, kokoonpanoa ja toimituksia.

Muutokset astuivat voimaan 4. tammikuuta 2021.

Thank you EuroBLECH 2022

We would like to thank all visitors that we met at the EuroBLECH 2022 exhibition! We were pleased to notice remarkable interest in Pivatic sheet and coil punching solutions, bending solutions, and the integration possibilities with our partners Remmert, Samesor, Eagle, Ursviken, and RAS.

For you who we discussed further detail, we will get back to you within the coming days.

Eagle and Pivatic deepen their collaboration in coil-fed fiber laser cutting solutions  

Eagle is a Polish manufacturer specializing in state-of-the-art fiber laser cutting machines and automation systems, and Pivatic; a Finnish producer of tailored high-performance coil and blank punching, bending systems, and automation solutions.
The two European high-techs have been cooperating during the past two years to develop more efficient coil-fed cutting solutions, but 2022 has marked a milestone. Earlier this year, they delivered the first of these game-changing systems and have another delivery lined up for Europe.

EuroBLECH in Hannover, Germany on the 25 – 28 October

Meet us at EuroBLECH 2022 – Stand E136, Hall 11! We will be showcasing a fully automated servo-electric coil punching, cutting and pressing line on the stand. Highly efficient and indexable Thick Turret punching combined with a separate cutting station and a press tool station of 1200 kN punching force allows jobs like hole group, embossing, corner notching and trimming to be flexibly produced. Energy consumption for the full line is between 12-18 kWh, depending on the use of the big press, which is 60-70% less compared to traditional systems. This supports Pivatic’s low-energy product solutions well toward global sustainable development.

The line is bought by a German manufacturer who will receive the line after the exhibition with two coil cars, a turning drum, and a stacking device that are not present at EuroBLECH. The line is made in custom blue line color.
