The Finnish solid wood construction company Puurakentajat Group has received new growth funding from a family business Onvest and Tesi (Finnish Industry Investment Ltd). Having done so, the company receives support and space to further develop the business already growing strongly to new heights.
Wood constructon has seen dramatic growth both domestically and globally. Key drivers in the growth have been the goals and guidelines for carbon neutrality and more sustainable use of wood.
“Tesi has identified wood construction as a growth area with opportunities for high positive impacts. Using solutions based on solid wood improves sustainability of the construction value chain and increases the added value of wood in Finland. We want to support the growth of the entire wood construction ecosystem by increasing Finnish industrial investments. Puurakentajat is a pioneer in solid wood construction in Finland and is now getting new owners to support its long-term growth ambitions,” says Esa Koponen, Investment Manager at Tesi.
