Puupietari Oy is a family owned company founded in 1997 and one of Finland’s largest wood processors for the window industry. The market area is Finland and the rest of Europe.
Puupietari began in the 1990s with a small field saw. Martti Pietarinen had the vision and the will to start making the world's most durable wood billets and start developing the related business and creating jobs. The company, founded in Liperi, Vaivio and still operating there today, employs more than 20 people and has a turnover of more than 10 million EUR.
Puupietari was the first in Finland to develop finger-jointed components for the door, window and molding industries. The earlier billets were noticed to be of lower quality, so the company wound up making finger-jointed billets. Finger-jointed billets are more consistent in quality and significantly more durable. The mission was to create billets that last as long as the objects they are installed on. The same mission continues to guide the business of the company.
With the 2015 change of generation, the management of the company was transferred from founder Martti Pietarinen to Martti's sons Heikki Pietarinen and Matti Pietarinen. Thus, the ownership of the company remained in the family, and the same business goals based on Martti's vision can be continued and developed now and in the future.
Puupietari combines strong industry experience and expertise. Continuous development and the creation of new innovations and the efficiency of production are the principles of Puupietari.
One of the basic principles of the company is the appreciation and protection of nature. Wood itself is by far a much better material than alternative materials, but the most energy-efficient alternatives are always taken into account in production. Sawdust generated during the production of the products are further processed into briquettes used by heating plants through the products of PP Energy Oy.
