The story of Europress:
Environmental technology since 1970s
When Europress was founded, we were living in the aftermath of the 1970s oil crisis. Matti Turunen was a young father who grew interested in the still untrendy
field of waste management. In between raising his children, he started to import and sell compactors to help manage the mountains of waste swelled by industrialisation. Through determination and perseverance, Matti managed to launch the challenging business and provide an income for his family.
Through thick and thin, Europress has pushed onwards ever since. The journey has involved the many ups and downs of the global economy. This has not discouraged Europress to focus on investment and development. In good times, controlled growth has created a solid foundation for success. Over the years, Europress has gathered a team of professionals and experts, and the power of the team has enabled us to create brand new products, innovative solutions and a comprehensive range of services. We create new things and lead the way for the operators in the field.
Today, Europress is the leading manufacturer of waste compactors and balers in Northern Europe, constantly conquering new markets with its modern products
and quality service. A healthy environment, financial stability and reliability are our core values. These values help us guarantee for customers the continuity that is needed to achieve functioning waste handling and the highest recycling targets.
