The company started as a one man show by Mihkel Valdek in his own garage.
In 1995 he purchased the production building at Piiri 12A, Kelia to expand the production area from 188 m² to 300 m².

Caught up to base technology standards for current sheet metal production companies.

Participation in creating family and work-friendly work environment and organizational culture
In a silver-level organisation the management knows how to make the organisation’s culture more family-friendly.
This is done by giving the employees more autonomy and by replacing job descriptions with role descriptions.
Such a company is also characterised by inclusive management, reduced bureaucracy, lack of micro-management, etc.
