Manufacturer of auto body repair systems
Autorobot Finland Oy is a Finnish family business. The company manufactures high-quality and modern dent pulling and measuring systems for vehicles. Autorobot products are used in all continents, in a total of more than 70 countries.
The history of SmartPuller’s manufacturer, Autorobot Finland, started already in 1969, when the business owner and executive director Olavi Venäläinen founded a vehicle body shop. In his own body shop, Olavi found the body shop’s work methods of that time to be difficult and laborious, and so he had an idea of a device, which would make the dent pulling work of a vehicle easier and quicker. As a result of several years of active development work, a pioneering dent pulling device was created, which raised a lot of interest among the professionals in the field. The device was innovative in many aspects. It operated hydraulically, and it took ergonomics in to account. The first Autorobot device was sold in Finland in 1977. Export to other countries began a few year later.
The development of the SmartPuller began when the repair work of collision damage in the 2010s began to focus more dominantly on small damages, particularly in Western countries. We wanted to respond to customer needs, and bring to the market a device, which would allow vehicle panel damages to be repaired quickly and effortlessly. The SmartPuller device was launched in 2015. Customers have welcomed the product well, and we have received good feedback on it. The product is easy to use, and it does not require special training.
