Farmtools Oy is a growing and innovative tank supplier that manufactures and sells solutions for the storage, transportation, and warehousing of liquid fuels.
Today, Farmtools offers its expertise to professionals from various fields in the second generation. We have been a valued partner in the agricultural wholesale trade for decades. The history of tank manufacturing at our factory in Ylihärmä reaches all the way to the 1950s.
Our mission is to ensure safe storage of energy, and thus we offer various tank solutions for this purpose. Our products, selection, and services are constantly being developed further to correspond to the requirements of our customers. One of our most recent innovations is the FARMEX Cover™ for fuel oil tanks.
Farmtools Oy is a family-owned company that was established in 1980 by Pertti Ratia. A few years later, he ended up acquiring the business of Viiskone Oy, a tank manufacturer from Ylihärmä, including the company's manufacturing facilities built in the 1950s. Ever since, Farmtools has continued the tradition of Ostrobothnian tank manufacturing in Ylihärmä based on the values of the family business. The original 70-year-old factory building is still in use.
In 1992, Farmtools was the first Finnish manufacturer to launch a refurbishment service, which consist of a 10-point factory refurbishment program designed in accordance with instructions issued by TUKES for used farm tanks. The genuine and original refurbishment service is a testament to our 30 years of experience and expertise in refurbishment.
Today, the refurbishment service is called FARMEX PEUKKU™. At times like these, the importance of refurbishment is emphasized even further, as it is after all an environmentally sound and responsible solution for the safe storage of fuel oil.
