The company operates in Pirtinniemi, and manufacturing facilities consist of four production lines. Automation and robotics are utilized widely, but manual welding is still needed in all projects. Typically, workers work as welders, welding operators, smiths, benders, and machinists. Material handling, NDT-inspection, maintenance of equipment, heat treatment, painting, and packaging are supplied by partner companies.

Daily manufacturing matters are handled together at a daily meeting. Manufacturing is developed continuously, utilizing LEAN thinking and methods. All data of quality inspections is saved in a digital database.
