Arotfenno Oy is one of the largest car dismantlers in Finland. The company was founded back in 1986 and was registered under its current name in 1993. Since 2012, the company has been operating in modern premises in Leppävirta, with approximately 100,000 items in stock. The customer base consists of insurance companies, workshops and private individuals who are served by 15 competent employees.

Kari Saastamoinen, VVD of Arotfenno Oy said:

“With our industry experience, we know how much can be saved, both financially and environmentally, through reused spare parts. Together with Autocirc, we become part of a larger context and get increased opportunities to provide even better and more versatile service to our customers.”

A business that brings great environmental benefits

Autocirc’s model for a circular economy in the auto parts industry implies significant environmental values. The group contributes to increased access to reused vehicle parts and gives the customer a good and more sustainable alternative to newly produced ones. A key part of the strategy is to acquire companies that strengthen the offer and accelerate the circular transition.

Johan Livered, CEO, of Autocirc AB, commented:

“Optimization and reuse of vehicle parts is our contribution to the development of the circular economy. To make our offer as attractive as possible, we need companies like Arotfenno Oy in the group. They will be a strong addition with their long experience, solid expert knowledge and the environmental thinking that permeates the entire operation.”
