Before joining the Kausala-based manufacturer on 1 February 2023, Nissinen worked for several years in the research and development side of the construction equipment industry.

Seppo Jurvanen, Lekatech's senior engineering director, said Nissinen's expertise in mechanical engineering, electronics and measurements will strengthen the Lekatech product development team.

"Jyrki is responsible for the development, design and maintenance of Lekatech's products, and he will participate in product development projects as a product development team member. We welcome Jyrki to Lekatech and wish him all success in his new job!"

Being trialled at five open pit and underground mines and one quarry, Lekatech says its groundbreaking fully electric hammer is up to 70% more efficient than a conventional hydraulic hammer attachment, providing significant energy savings for mining and quarrying customers while doubling impact force.
