Avant 25 years in Germany

Avant Tecno Deutschland GmbH, the German sales company of Avant, was founded in 1992. On 29th September 2017, they celebrated its 25th anniversary at the company’s own premises in Eppertshausen, near Frankfurt am Main.

In addition to the employees, the event was attended by about one hundred guests, who represented clients, dealers and partners. There were also staff from the Avant factory in Finland.

Thomas Sterkel, Managing Director of Avant Tecno Deutschland GmbH, praised their new premises opened two years ago in his opening speech. The new facilities have made it possible to focus on sales and also helped Germany rise to Avant’s second largest export country during the current financial year. Risto Käkelä, Avant Tecno’s founder and CEO, and Jani Käkelä, Executive Vice President at Avant, talked about the company’s history, growth and the significance of the German market to the Group, and also shared their vision of the company’s future.


The event continued to the next day with Avant Expo open doors. A large number of Avant and Leguan Lifts products were on display. Guests could either follow the demonstrations, or if they wish, could also try out the machines.

Avant Tecno Oy is thankful to every member of the German subsidiary, for their hard work and contribution to the company’s success, and wish them more success to come. Happy 25-year anniversary!
