In the midst of an energy cluster - surrounded by highly skilled experts

Vaasa is a small town, but the companies in the area are world-class operators in the energy sector. A large hub has emerged in the city and its neighbourhoods, where companies have specialized in the production technologies of its own field. The companies are engaged in close collaboration, with each focusing on its core knowhow. Each company invests in the newest technology and skills within its niche. The different companies in the energy cluster can together ensure top quality production throughout a wide range of energy related products. The energy cluster also fosters green values: environmental footprints can be substantially reduced for example from reduced needs for transportation and packaging.

Uwira is part of Leinolat Group, whose subsidiaries are vital parts of this network. Uwira’s manufacturing processes utilize the expertise of the Group as well as external competence found in the surrounding energy cluster.

From an Apprentice into a Master

The roots of Uwira are from the pipe production in Wärtsilä; these operations were outsourced to Uwira in 2001. We started small, but were able to operate according to the quality, safety, and delivery requirements of a global operator from the very beginning. Over the years we have invested in the skills of our employees - this means both the technical skills as well as a mind-set to think like the customer, and to anticipate future changes. We have grown into a role, where we work closely with our customers on a daily basis. Our mutual goal is to find solutions that positively affect productivity and cost levels. This makes Uwira a partner who sits on the same side of the table with the customer - looking after customer's interests.
