Our story started in 2004 in Northern Finland where our founder Ralf Mattson established Oulun Konttivuokraus Oy. Prior to this, Ralf had been working in shipping and transportation since the 1980s with multiple other companies. Over the years, the company experienced steady growth, with our core competencies and values remaining our guiding principles.
The year 2015 marked the start of a new era with the current CEO Jesse Mattson returning to the Family business to open our first international office in Hamburg. A year later in 2016, we expanded to Sweden with the establishment of Mattson Containers AB to respond to the growing demand from Scandinavia. During the years 2015-2022, the company grew fast with building our own terminals and depots in Oulu and Vihti (Helsinki), Finland.
In 2022, Mattson Stevedoring was established as its own company, operating prior under the Finnish company Oulun Konttivuokraus Oy. With its own terminals, depots, personnel and machines, Mattson Stevedoring has grown rapidly serving international and local partners in Finland.
Over the years we have grown to serve clients worldwide and our employee count is currently over 30 persons. This has not changed the base values of our operations. We want to be real experts in our field who always find the best solution to any possible location.
