– From the
Middle of Nowhere
Who are we? We are a third-generation family company established in 1957. Our roots run deep in the small village of Kotkamaa in Kokkola, a city located in the Central Ostrobothnia region of Finland. Our international customers may not be familiar with our location or even with all our raw materials. We take that as a compliment.
In Finland, Ostrobothnians are generally considered to be tenacious, strong-willed and a little crazy. We fit that description, but our hearts are also in the right place and our values are strong. We take good care of our staff, work in close collaboration with local communities, and continuously improve our production processes in line with green values while preserving the traditional craft.
Our mission is to be genuinely sustainable.
Over centuries, the harsh conditions of the Nordic North have turned us into a hardy lot. The people of the Nordic North are strong, determined and resourceful: the severe conditions here have forced us to create new and innovative things in order to survive.
We are proud to be different. We may sometimes be a little too frank and our sense humour bone dry, but we greatly appreciate simplicity and authenticity. We might not speak much, but when we do, we stand by every word we say.
For a very long time, the heart of our business was to process leather sustainably. Today, another key part of our business is to make pet treats in a modern, sustainable and flexible manner. You can purchase and use any of our products with pride and in good conscience.
