Personnel contact details

We work seriously hard but never with a serious face! We help find solutions and move forward together, always with trust.

Serving our customers

We often visit our customers' sites or promote regional affairs where we can have the most impact. The best place to find us is at the office or elsewhere by making an appointment in advance, either by phone or by e-mail.  You can also submit a contact request on our website and we will contact you as you like by the next business day.

We are constantly taking care of our expertise to provide our customers with the latest information. We also provide a voice for the municipalities and companies of the region in Finland and abroad. All our own services are free of charge.
