Sampo-Rosenlew Oy is a manufacturer of combine harvesters and forestry machinery base in Pori, Finland. The company was founded as the W. Rosenlew Ltd.. Rosenlew produced home appliances as well as industrial and agricultural machinery, and was an early manufacturer of binders and threshing machinery before moving into combine manufacture in 1957.

Rosenlew was taken over by Electrolux and several divisions were shut down or sold off. One of the divisions, Överum, had sold combines in conjunction with Aktiv, and was later sold to Kongskilde. Aktiv had become part of Electrolux and took over Volvo BM's combine business when Volvo BM was sold to Valmet. Aktiv became part of Sampo in 1981.

By 1982, Massey Ferguson had signed an supply agreement for Sampo to build MF combines. It continues as AGCO now owns 10% of the company.

In 1991 the Combine division was subject to a Management Buyout by Timo Prihti and renamed as Sampo-Rosenlew Ltd. (Sampo was a brand name used on the companies threshing machines from the 1920s).

A joint venture was established in Estonia in 1993, and another in 1996 for Romania. The joint venture JSV Sampo Rostov was formed along with RostSelMash in the mid-2000s. Same Deutz-Fahr bought 10% of the company in 2003 and began marketing Sampo-produced combines under the Deutz-Fahr brand. In 2006, an agreement was signed with Uzel to supply them combines in Turkey, and there is now some assembly happening in Turkey. In 2011, AGCO purchased 10% of the company. There is also some assembly happening in Iran.

Other brands have been built using Sampo technology, including combines for/by Terrion, Terrion Sampo, IH-Sampo, Bizon, Braud, Deutz-Fahr, Massey-Ferguson and Uzel.
