Our history

We have come a long way from being a scrapyard in Vyborg to our current position as Northern Europe’s leading industrial recycling company. The strongest periods of growth for our company, whose history stretches back over 100 years, were Finland’s post-war decades of industrialisation and the time of our entry into the international market from the 1970s to the 1990s. Pioneering research and development work and unparalleled expertise in high technology have also played an important role from the very beginning.
