Pintos is Nordic’s leading provider of reinforcement solutions. The Finnish company, founded in 1956, counts on its flexible deliveries and smart production. From a single piece of concrete casting accessories to consultative overall reinforcement solutions, Pintos delivers high-quality services for its customers.
Pintos offers intelligent reinforcement and fastening solutions for building companies, the concrete industry as well as retailers. The requirements set for the building industry continuously evolve, due to which Pintos focuses on evolving along with them towards more responsible, safe and versatile building solutions.
One of the core values of Pintos is to deliver its customer promises and secure delivery reliability now and in the future. A long-term commitment to serving excellence has created a solid foundation for the business.
“We have a long-term approach to our business. Instead of living a month at a time, we focus on long-term anticipation in the market,” explains Jaakko Reunanen, Development Manager at Pintos.
To speed up its continuous development, Pintos realized it would need a modern integration platform that would allow utilizing data in a more advanced and efficient manner. In addition, the automation opportunities were attractive for the future.
For these reasons, low-code Frends iPaaS seemed like an ideal solution. Its hyper-automation capabilities – allowing the use of different automation techniques like RPA, AI, and BPA, would ensure cost-efficiency and flexibility for any future development scenario.
“At the moment, we are happy with the integration capabilities provided by Frends iPaaS. However, in the future, we are looking to automate routine tasks, for which the technology offers versatility,” says Reunanen.
"The pilot phase proved how good of a product Frends iPaaS is. First, the technology works well and, secondly, the experts of Frends have profound integration knowledge."

Pintos places great importance on its production, manufacturing, and storage capacity to deliver products to customers always on time, for precise individual needs and large scale projects. To gain better control and visibility over each of these processes and business functions, Pintos turned to the Frends Integration Platform.
Pintos has invested in data-driven processes that equip it with the right business insights to reduce lead time: shortening delivery and manufacturing times. As many of the products are manufactured due to customer demand, the automated order and manufacturing processes must run smoothly at all times.
“Data and integrations play a significant role in our sales and operational efficiency. Our previous choice of technology did not provide us with the necessary capabilities for service offering development and internal integrations, so we chose to proceed with Frends iPaaS,” says Reunanen.
Pintos and Frends started their cooperation in August 2022 with a five-month pilot phase.
“The pilot phase proved how good of a product Frends iPaaS is. First, the technology works well and, secondly, the experts of Frends have profound integration knowledge,” says Reunanen.
With the help of Frends, Pintos can ensure reliable data flow and integrations to deliver to its customers. As a result, data monitoring has improved, and incidents are easier to locate. In addition, Frends experts proactively detect and solve any potential problems.
“Frends iPaaS strengthens the competitiveness of Pintos and creates new business opportunities. Furthermore, we are satisfied with the support and the peace of mind we have received when working with the extremely competent experts of Frends,” sums Reunanen.
