The origins of AS Kohimo
date back to 1953, making it one of the oldest Estonian companies in the field of steel structure manufacturing. For the last 30 years, the company has specialised in the manufacturing and installation of steel tanks and terminals for dangerous liquid storages.
The company also manufactures and installs various other metal fabrications, including those for plant buildings, towers for bulk products, and water lines.
Igor Kond, AS Kohimo’s CEO, said the new investment was not made to replace current equipment in the production hall, but to ensure future competitiveness. “Recently, demand from our customers has increased.
“To guarantee our competitiveness and our ability to respond to changing manufacturing needs, we decided to invest in new welding automation from Pemamek
— a PEMA TW5000-25 assembly and welding station with side supporting arms and a handling capacity of 25 tonnes, together with a PEMA 4x4 MD column and boom.
“We have three crucial targets with this investment: better quality for our end products; shorter delivery times; and efficiency that will decrease the man hours in our production.”
Because of the pandemic, AS Kohimo relied on a private virtual webinar provided by Pemamek during the decision-making phase.
Mr Kond said: “The private webinar and the overall support played a major role in our decision to invest in PEMA solutions. We have received a lot of support so far, and we believe that Pemamek can efficiently provide service to us in the future.
“The chance to have a private webinar for our personnel was excellent. The webinar was very visual and gave a great overview of the solution and how it works.”
