Oy Banmark Ab is a Finnish owned company operating internationally in the pulp and paper industry. In Finland Banmark also represents equipment and chemicals for several fields of industries. Banmark was founded in 1971 as a subsidiary of Bang & Co., which then in 1993 merged with the Bonsomer Company to form a new company, Bang & Bonsomer. Within 12 months of the merger of this new parent company, Banmark stepped into international business by opening a new office in Russia. By the turn of the millennium Banmark had established an office in Sweden and in the early 2000’s we expanded to Poland and China. Our office in Czech Republic was established in 2017.
Since 2009 Banmark has been a subsidiary of Transmeri Group. In late 2014 Banmark purchased the process equipment department of Oy Insalko Ab, a company which represents high quality equipment for the process, pulp and paper, food production and biogas industries. In 2017 Banmark acquired Kiertopaine Oy , which specializes in different kinds of pumps. In 2019 Banmark acquired two new daughter companies: Hämeen Öljykeskus Oy and Orat Oy. Nowadays Hämeen Öljykeskus is officially Banmark Voiteluaineet Oy (Banmark Lubricants).
