Sleipner is made for moving and carrying, yet its roots are strongly in its honorable history. In 1996 an excavator operator, Ossi Kortesalmi, came up with his own smart solution for an excavator transport system. The first prototype of Sleipner was born. It was built for a 90 tonne excavator, and it was meant to last. It is still in use. Since the first years, the Sleipner product family has grown to provide solution for excavators up to 565 tonnes and drills and bulldozers up to 120 tonnes. They are all ready to face mobilization challenges in the global mining, quarrying and earthmoving industries.
With great sadness, we announce the loss of our beloved colleague Ossi Kortesalmi.
Ossi was the inventor of the Sleipner system and the founder of the company. Next year will be 25 years since the first Sleipner model was delivered to customer. Ossi continued to work with us developing new ideas until these days.
Ossi was a beloved and highly valued member of our team and he will be missed by his family, friends, colleagues and numerous partners and customers all around the world.
We at Sleipner will honour Ossi’s memory and work by continuing developing and delivering solutions to our customers which Ossi valued highly – all the mines and quarries.
