Last year was good in the Finnish metal industry but the sales started to decline towards the end of 2019. The availability of components improved and thanks to this our customers were able to increase their production. Correspondingly, Jame-Shaft increased production volumes and autumn 2019 was the best autumn period in the company’s history. In spite of the increased sales, our delivery capacity remained at very good level. Thanks to new machines and increased personnel we were able to meet the growing demand and even expand our customer base. The same positive trend continued in the first quarter of 2020, until COVID-19 started to paralyze all activities.
