EuroWindoor´s first Timber Study Tour to Finland took place from May 18th – 20th, 2016.

Frankfurt am Main, June 7th, 2016. The Timber Study Tour through the Southwest of Finland was organized in the tradition of the FEMIB study tours and gave the 27 participants from seven European countries varied insights into the Finnish window and timber industry. Furthermore, the study tour was aimed to establish new contacts and to contribute as well the improved cooperation of European companies in the sector.

The starting point of the tour was the Hotel Scandic Rosendahl in Tampere, in which the participants met after their arrival on Wednesday, May 18th, 2016. The visit of the restaurant in an observation tower about 140 m over Tampere with breath-taking view offered the participants the first opportunity to get to knowledge each other.
The participants visited on Thursday first the production of Inwido Ruovesi window manufacturer in Ruovesi. A counterpoint set the visit to the nearby Serlachius Art Museum Gösta, whose 2014-opened extension in timber construction attracted international attention. On the way back to Tampere, the participants visited the sawmill Metsä Vilppula. The ultramodern sawmill was optimized in 2013 and impresses with high performance and low level of offcuts.
On Friday, the group visited the production of Lammin Ikkunat window manufacturer on the way to Helsinki. Beside the modern production, a test equipment for developing solutions to overcome the shielding of mobile radiation by low-e coating in modern buildings was shown. Finally, the visit of a window installation of Skaala Production Oy in a building complex near the airport of Helsinki was on the itinerary.
The "Federation of the Finnish Woodworking Industries" hosted the Tour. The company visits were only possible by the close contacts of this member association of EuroWindoor AISBL.
Most of the participants were delighted about the impacts they got by this Timber Study Tour and asked for the next tour in 2018! [more information about study tours in general in the section "Study Tour" of the activity "Research and Education".] General Secretariat EuroWindoor AISBL,
