A PIECE OF OUR HISTORY
Palatec Oy (Ltd) is established in 2000, which was established from a customer-oriented perspective at that time. The company’s founder, now deceased, Mr. Jorma Laitinen, already had decades of experience and knowledge of demanding raw materials and procurement of these raw materials. Jorma worked for about 30 years as a buyer at Valmet, Sako and Patria. He had comprehensive knowledge of the raw materials used by the Defense Forces example. When he left his previous job, he began to receive inquiries from his old colleagues and acquaintances about the availability of different metals. This created a genuine need to set up a company through which Jorma was able to help and serve customers.
Over the years, business operations have expanded, and the customers and suppliers’ network has grown. As the company’s founder Jorma grew older, he asked Mr. Marko Parkkonen to join the company. In 2021, with the share transactions, the entrepreneurial couple Marko Parkkonen and Tiina Huuskonen took over Palatec’s traction.
The cornerstones of the operation are high-quality customer service, responsible operations considering environmental values and reliable deliveries at competitive price. We want to provide add value to our customers at Palatec Oy.
