About Stairon

A pioneer in customer-specific process equipment manufacturing.

Working with industry since 1964

Stairon is an industrial service provider that solves its customers’ challenges as well as manufactures and develops process equipment for industrial companies in a variety of fields, both in Finland and abroad.

Stairon’s history stretches all the way back to the 1960s. In 1964, Valmet Paper Machines began operations at its Pansio plant, focusing on the design, manufacturing and product development of paper machine cooling systems.

In 1999, the merger of Valmet and Rauma resulted in the formation of Valmet-Rauma Plc, which changed its name to Metso Plc later that year. The Pansio plant continued operating under the name Metso Paper Turku Works.

In 2009, Metso sold all its shares in Metso Paper Turku Works to Stairon Oy, which was formed in a management buyout. Tapio Hussi, mill production manager for Metso Paper, was the majority shareholder.

In 2019, Stairon underwent a business transfer, when Tapio Hussi sold all of his shares to Stairon’s CEO Timo Kylä-Nikkilä and Stairon Group Oy, a company established by Canelco Capital, thus forming the Stairon Group.

Today, Stairon’s Pansio plant manufactures a wide range of process industry equipment and machines for operators in multiple industries.
