Our company’s roots are in the 1920s’ when young man by the name of Vilppu Alamäki started his transportation business in Oulu region.
Vilppu was a resourceful and determided young man, who managed to cope with harsh war years and would, when he saw the opportunity, expand his business. He would charter local society’s and clubs to their first day trips. There was a time when he owned a cinema and a bookshop too, in addition to his main line of business. Vilppu later sold his other businesses, but bus transportation remained at his focus. Lot has changed since Vilppu’s time, but the company still focuses on the very same principals; providind good service and being a reliable. Currently, there is already the fourth generation of the family working for the company.
