Our story

The Sofinn group of companies was founded in 1976. The purpose of the group was the introduction of Finnish High Tech in Western Europe. Main fields of activity:

1976: Sofinn SA equipment for the pharmaceutical and biotech industry. The company introduced a new type of water still for the pharmaceutical industry which with time became the world leader in its own field. The company also became one of the leading suppliers of sterilisation equipment. The UK and French companies further developed their own technology for the storage and distribution of water for injection. The activity required a thorough understanding of all technical aspects as well as the corresponding requirements of the US FDA.

1976-2002: Complete production lines for the wood based panel and parquet industries. The activity concentrated on France and French speaking Africa and was built up during a time period of 25 years. When devested in 2002 to the Raute corporation of Finland, Raute was by far the leading supplier of such equipment in France.

1976-1983: Equipment for the glass industry as well as its production. The main activity was first the building up of the sales of laminated windscreens in France on a number of European markets. The group became an important windscreen wholesaler in Germany. The latter successfully devested to the Finnish company Tamglass in 1983.

1982-2000: Complete lines for sawmills. The co-operation with the Veisto Group resulted in the introduction of a new type of high productivity Hew saw in France.
