In 1982, Tuomikoski founded a company in the field of chains; which got the name Ketjumyynti Oy. New demands created thoughts for a fully new chain model and the development of an operation idea, plus its commercial realisation. The solutions that traditional chains could provide did not satisfy him.
The birth of the toothing pitch chain and driving wheel
Already the same year, the first chain models and driving wheel models were manufactured, which were revolutionary ingenious inventions in the chain field. The fully new chain technique of operations convinced the field specialists, as well as radical staged hydro-technology appliance deliverers.
Tuomikoski had developed a new type tooth pitch chain plus driving wheel. The technique is used in the water purification process, in sludge chain scraper systems. Already in 1984, Helsinki, Lahti and Hämeenlinna's waste water plants, amongst others, desired to be the test targets and took advantage of the new light-structured, energy- and maintenance friendly, products. These waste water plants realized that the new system offers many benefits compared to traditional systems. User experience had to be achieved in Finlandís demanding climatic conditions over the different seasons.
Family enterprise and internationality
Already at the beginning of the 1990s, Ketjumyynti had established a leading position in the Finnish market, which opened up possibilities to the larger markets of Europe and the world. Tuomikoski chose, with his daughter Leena, to combine resources and internationalize. In 1992, a family enterprise, Finnchain Oy, was established in order to make the new technology known to the world. Domestic market operations were continued under the name 'Ketjumyynti'.
Pekka Tuomikoski decided to continue as the company's chairman, accompanied by his daughter Leena as managing director.
Regular participation at international fairs, increased the recognition of the company and its systems. A significant sign of Finnchain's course into the international market has been the Psyttalia waste water purification plant in Athens, Greece. Finnchain delivered 128 sludge scraper systems to the water purification plant. As a single delivery, it has been the largest ever made in Europe. The project was realised within one year and due to the excellent performance, Finnchain's business developed in the demanding export markets.
Aiming on continual product developments, Finnchain has set the following criteria on its products;
Today, a global system deliverer has been built around Tuomikoski's ideas, which is well-reputed for its innovative development work in the field, ensured by lots of patents, connected to its various systems.

For grit scrapers we supply the same reliable and patented sludge scrapers as for rectangular tanks. Customized scraper flights enduringthe abrasion of sand.
Combined Surface and Bottom Scraper
The collector chains run over four sets of wheels per tank side so that the flights clean the sludge from the tank bottom and push it to tank end for removal. On the return run the scraper flights move the scum to the opposite tank end.
