- Aamulehti has a strong position in its market area. It is a trusted friend for everyone living in the Pirkanmaa province, which makes Aamulehti a perfect vehicle for the advertiser. Our primary target is to communicate the commercial potential of Finland's second largest economic area to nationwide advertisers, Mr Lintunen says.
