Our family-owned company, Puupietari Oy, was founded in 1997. We are one of the largest wood processing companies in the window industry in Finland and we also deliver our products across Europe.
We began operating in the 1990s with a small field saw. Martti Pietarinen had the vision and the will to start producing the most durable wood billets in the world, develop the industry and create jobs. The company was founded in the small eastern Finnish village of Vaivio where we still operate today. We currently employ more than 20 people and our annual turnover is over 10 million EUR.
We were the first in Finland to develop finger-jointed components for the door, window and molding industries. We realised that finger-jointed billets are more consistent in quality and significantly more durable than the traditional billets. Our mission was to create billets that have a long life. This same mission continues to drive our business operations today.
In 2015, the founder, Martti Pietarinen, transferred the management of the company to his sons, Heikki and Matti Pietarinen. Martti’s vision and business goals continue to be the basis for our present and future operations. Our core principles are enhanced by a comprehensive knowledge of the industry, expertise and new design and development innovations together with effective production.
Another of our core principles is the appreciation and protection of nature. Wood itself is by far a more ecological material than other alternatives. The most energy-efficient alternatives for use with wood are always researched and considered for production. For example, our PP Energy Oy products utilise the sawdust generated during product manufacture for production of briquettes used by heating plants.
