Finland's vast forests cover approximately 80% of its land mass and have understandably become an integral part of its culture. The Finnish people take huge pride in their heritage which they hold dear and safeguard it by managing and sustaining their forests with great care.

Our suppliers, IkiHirsi Oy, are based in Kemijarvi, a town north of the Arctic Circle, literally in the middle of the best pine wood forests in Europe. Traditionally in Finland, the Finns lived in log houses which were handcrafted by skilled carpenters whose knowledge and expertise was passed down from generation to generation by father to son. This tradition is maintained by IkiHirsi who still supply hand made products for those clients who seek something that little bit different.

In the 1960's, a modernisation programme was commenced under which the first specialist machine was installed enabling the manufacture of machine made log houses. This development supported and complemented their traditional Finnish log building skills. IkiHirsi's huge investment in technology has continued down the years leading to a new factory being opened in February 2005. It contains the latest computer controlled, high precision machinery which ensures that all the logs are sawn, planed, turned and finished to a high standard and delivered on time.

So, the traditional woodworking skills of the Finns are now supported by and blended with modern technology enabling IkiHirsi to supply countries throughout the world with their high quality products.
