Template:List of Valmet ModelsValmet (originally Valtion Metallitehtaat - State Metalworks) was formed in 1951, when the state of Finland decided to group their various factories working on war reparations to the Soviet Union under one company. Valmet and the factories fused with it produce a wide array of products including aeroplanes, auto- and locomotives, weapons manufacturing and everyday household appliances.
