Finland celebrates its centenarian this year by organizing special events throughout the year in Finland and abroad. In Stockholm, a three-day event will be held 24-26 August 2017 at the Kungsträdgården, one of the central parks of the Capital. Lappset are proud of having been chosen one of the distinguished Finnish companies to take part in the event. Together with our Swedish subsidiary, Lappset Sweden, we have constructed a tailored playground for this special occasion to bring joy to children and families.
Lappset has a long and close relationship with Sweden for many reasons. When Lappset was established, its founding father Mr Antero Ikäheimo acted Honorary Consul for Sweden in Rovaniemi. After his retirement, his daughter and today Chairperson of the Board of Directors, Ms Johanna Ikäheimo continues this position of trust.
Lappset Sweden is one of the Group’s six subsidiaries, located about one-hour-drive from Stockholm in Enköping. The subsidiary takes care of marketing and sales of Lappset’s products in the Swedish market and manufactures a major part of our collection of modern and classic park furniture.
The theme of the STHLM/SUOMI event is also close to our heart; Together. We play together. We exercise together. We spend time together with our friends and family in a park or on a park bench. We create business together with our customers. Above all, we furnish outdoor and indoor spaces with playgrounds, sports areas and parks for the well-being of all ages.
