Opening ceremony for the Jetta-Talo Corporation’s sawmill Jet-Puu held in Perho

Minister Jyri Häkämies was the guest speaker at the opening ceremony. In his speech Häkämies emphasised our strong tradition in wood construction and how favourable it is for the environment. Häkämies said in his speech that there are too few endeavours like this one which demonstrate a willingness to realise modernisation rather than putting it off until better economic times.

Construction of the new sawmill was a significant strategic decision for the corporation. It enables us to ensure the availability of high-quality timber for our own plant at a stable price. We also offer the region timber processing possibilities and local employment for 25 people at the sawmill. This year, Jet-Puu and Jetta-Talo employ about 140 people in the area.
