Over 40 years of manufacturing experience, extensive knowhow, and state-of-the-art machinery enable us to design and manufacture extremely demanding components and solutions. Tasowheel has three production plants, two in Tampere and one in Tikkakoski. The total size of our production facilities is 12 400 m². Our Tampere factories concentrate mainly on manufacturing and assembling a variety of power transmission and controlled motion solutions for leading global companies and quality control systems for the paper industry. The Tikkakoski plant focuses on multi-axis turning and milling.
Our in-house operations include, for example, turning, milling, hobbing, gear shaping, hard turning, grinding and gear grinding. We are able to offer a full production-cycle for gear manufacturing in-house except for surface treatments, for which we have reliable partners. In addition, we have a wide network of long-term partners who help us improve our capacity and services in challenging situations.
Thanks to our well-equipped production facilities with modern machinery, we have the flexibility for lower volumes as well as the capacity for large series.

Today, we strive for excellence in customer experience by serving our customers through premium quality and communications, accompanied with documentation that utilizes cutting-edge technology.
History – In motion since 1979
After careful and long consideration and encouraged by his wife Seija, Taisto Sorjonen set up a local gear manufacturing company in 1979 . Today Tasowheel is a growth-oriented internationally operating multi-industry enterprise. One thing has remained the same over the years: family ownership. Nowadays Taisto’s son Kari is leading Tasowheel, and the third generation is already working hands-on in the company and learning the business.
The different stages of Tasowheel’s journey have been marked by diverse economic cycles. Since the very early days of our operation, the company has been striving for growth through expansion, acquisitions and new businesses, as well as extending our activities from the domestic market to international environments. Today, our focus still remains on further growth at our home market and abroad.

We comply with environmental legislation and all other applicable regulations, and operate in an ethical, sustainable and socially responsible manner. Our shared goal is to protect the interest of all our stakeholders, such as employees, customers, suppliers, and the communities in which we operate.
Tasowheel invests heavily in advanced machinery, production technology and equipment to support strong growth and high productivity targets. The annual investment in new machinery is approximately 10 % of our turnover. We are a highly reliable company with an AAA credit rating, and we contribute to societal well-being by paying our taxes according the Finnish legislation.
We always operate in accordance with social norms and legislation. We take safety issues such as work safety extremely seriously, and the well-being of our employees is our top priority.
