Nearly 40 years of forestry contracting in Central Finland
The history of Metsä-Multia
Reijo Laaja, the father of the current entrepreneurs running Metsä-Multia Oy, began forestry contracting work right after his obligatory military service in 1967. Metsä-Multia Oy was founded in 1977 when Reijo Laaja combined his operations with another Multia-based entrepreneur, Reijo Vuorinen, who had begun his career in 1964.
The new company acquired its first Ponsse vehicle in 1987. This was also the beginning of the cooperation with Ponsse that has now continued for nearly three decades.
In 1988, Reijo Vuorinen retired from the company and left the management of Metsä-Multia Oy entirely to Reijo Laaja and his wife Eija. In 2002, a generational shift took place within the company when the entire share capital was transferred to Kai and Aki Laaja, Reijo and Eija’s sons.
Today, the company employs over 60 professionals in the field. The main operating area of Metsä-Multi Oy is Central Finland. The company’s customers include Metsä Group, Versowood, Forest Management Association Central Finland, UPM Metsä and Forest Vital Oy. Metsä-Multia took its first steps on international markets in 2007.
