Adaptive Industrial Loops
The MEX Finland ecosystem integrates product design, manufacturing and end-user processes into continuous learning and feedback loops to develop new offerings and business models leveraging digitalization and an ecosystem way of working. Backed by Business Finland, the objective is to support the growth and internationalization of the participating ecosystem members.
What we do
MEX Finland is a mission-driven ecosystem established to relentlessly pursue digital and sustainability transformation in the engineering and manufacturing of industrial equipment and related advanced manufacturing services. The ecosystem’s core is the mechanical engineering sector, which includes globally cutting-edge applications embracing new technologies and one of the highest added value exports for Finland. The ecosystem aims to support the growth and internationalization of manufacturing companies in Finland. The formation of the ecosystem was possible thanks to the support of Business Finland.
Undisputed leadership in advanced industrial equipment and processes
Our vision for 2030
Through the AIL initiative, MEX Finland has attained global leadership in adaptive industrial loops, i.e. seamless integration of product design, manufacturing, and end-user value creation processes, and launched new offerings worth €3 billion in export revenues.
MEX Finland drives transformation through three perspectives
Company-driven offering development initiatives, wherein a company has a need to test and verify some new technology, product, service, or process in a real-world context, and is interested in joining MEX Finland to speed up its development efforts and benefit from the collaboration with other participants in forming a development project.
Systemic competence development where a systematic innovation development challenge has been identified and a system-wide approach is needed to resolve the issues. Systemic projects also have a knowledge acquisition and positioning role for Finnish competences and ecosystems.
Collaboration with institutions to provide the members with access to new knowledge from leading global experts. MEX Finland also seeks to expand the membership-base in order to engage relevant new capabilities that support addressing new opportunities as well as marketing and communication to stakeholders.
Spearhead offering development and piloting
The MEX Finland ecosystem continually launches new offerings in the international markets based on successful piloting in Finland.
A key performance indicator for MEX Finland is the new export revenue created thanks to the company-specific initiatives supported by MEX Finland.
MEX Finland is recognized as a leading authority for mechanical engineering both academically and business wise, working closely with mechanical engineering companies and universities domestically and internationally.
Strengthening mechanical engineering's image
MEX Finland revitalizes education and competence-building for attractive career building and raises awareness for investment opportunities.
Based on its early success, MEX Finland is committed to continuing as a market-driven community supporting its members.
The MEX Finland ecosystem welcomes progressive organizations from business, government, and research who have an interest in contributing to the transformation of manufacturing solutions.
