Sampo’s key market areas are the Nordic countries, Europe, North Africa, and the CIS countries. Its turnover for the financial year that ended on 31 March 2022 was EUR 52 million. Following the transaction, M&M and Sampo will jointly focus on the combine harvester and specialty harvester business in Asia, Africa, the Eurasian Economic Union countries, and Latin America.
