About us

Remu Oy

REMU is a manufacturing company of innovative earthmoving attachments including screening, crushing and padding buckets. Besides material handling attachments we also manufacture pontoon undercarriages for excavators to enable dredging and excavation work in the most challenging environments.

Our operations are centred around having happy customers. To achieve that goal, we want to understand what our customer needs, what work they do and what features they need from our products.  Understanding our customers serves as a foundation for product development that is often carried out in co-operation with customers. It is no surprise that the best ideas come from the people who work with our products. We apply this understanding and in house engineering to guarantee ongoing product development to boost performance and create value for our customers.

Quality is the cornerstone of our operations, the fruit of combining precise engineering, expert welding and skilled mechanical staff with the use of best raw materials available and a constant monitoring process. We are proud to say that our products are made in Finland.

We also have plenty of “sisu”, a Finnish word meaning determination, grit, persistence and willpower.
