Hassinen Veljekset Oy
Hassinen Veljekset Oy, more commonly known as HAVEL, is a Finnish family business with roots in forest machinery contracting for over 50 years. Since 1989, our company has developed and manufactured products for the demanding needs of various industries and contractors. Our main product is the Spiral hose guard, used for protecting hydraulic and pneumatic hoses as well as electrical wires, and it has been included in our product range already since the start of our business. Spiral hose guards made in our plastics workshop are used by the world’s leading equipment manufacturers for forestry, agricultural and mining applications. We also manufacture heavy-duty tools under the Mechanics brand for machinery contractors. We have been exporting our products since the 1990s; at present, there are some twenty export destination countries, mainly in Central Europe. All of the products are still manufactured in Ilomantsi, at our own factory.
Today, in addition to the founding brothers Seppo and Timo Hassinen, Havel is owned by Seppo’s children Mika and Suvi. The most important value and the guiding principle of the company is reliability, which is reflected in the high quality of the products, security of supply, and keeping of promises. Each product is manufactured with care, based on decades of professional experience. We continue to develop our products and strive to meet our customers’ needs and expectations. As a result of over 30 years of development, we can be proud of our products and be sure of our capability to offer the customers only the best, simple functionality.
Manufactured with the compression method, the HAVEL hose guard was our first and therefore our oldest product. Hose guards are also the main product we sell in Finland and abroad. Made from HDPE plastic, these hose guards can efficiently withstand solvents and temperature variations. HAVEL hose guards can be customised with the customer’s own logo and colour, to strengthen the brand appearance. Our largest customer groups include machinery manufacturers and hydraulics businesses.
In addition to the hose guard, various kinds of machines and equipment have been added to our product range, sold in Finland and abroad. Track tensioners have established a strong foothold among forestry machine manufacturers and operators. Our newest product group is excavator mounted stump grinders. Stumps are removed quickly and efficiently.
Since the year 1989, HAVEL has worked hard to become a reliable partner, establishing a strong position among its customers.
Hassinen Veljekset Oy was established by 1989, by the brothers Seppo and Timo Hassinen. Already back then, both had several decades of experience with forestry machinery, and at the time the company was founded, Seppo moved from the cabin of a forestry machine to a full-time position with the company, while Timo continued working on forestry machinery. The company was known under the name Hasvel at the time, manufacturing Ranturi boat racks exclusively for the domestic market, as well as hose guards, still the main product of the company. HAVEL started exporting in the mid-90s, and products are currently exported to about 20 countries, mainly in Central Europe. Over the years, HAVEL’s product range has expanded, and the company’s business operations have been divided into three segments: Spiral, Mechanics and Ranturi. In 2014, Seppo’s children Mika and Suvi, who had been working for the company for a long time, became part owners of the family company. Just like in the early days of the business, HAVEL continues to develop its products and services at their Ilomantsi factory, to meet the changing needs of their clients.
