Höljäkkä is the largest of Scanpole’s production facilities. The size of the production area is 27 hectares, and in addition, the company owns 120 hectares of land in the area. The impregnation plant is located in the village of Höljäkkä, about 20 km from Nurmes in Eastern Finland, surrounded by wide Finnish forests.

The Mononens obtained Höljäkkä through an acquisition from Enso-Gutzeit (known today as Stora-Enso) at first partially in 1991, and fully in 1994. Iivari Mononen’s sons Juhani, Pauli and Arvi were behind the acquisition that was carried out based on an idea of Arvi Mononen. For a long time, the production plant operated under the name Höljäkkä Oy, until it was changed to Scanpole Oy in connection with business acquisitions in the early 2010s.

Before acquiring Höljäkkä, Iivari Mononen Oy manufactured and sold pole blanks to impregnation plants, mainly in the UK. With the new production plant, the market expanded further in Finland and also internationally.

In the 2000s, more than half of the company’s turnover came from countries in the Middle East and North Africa. ”We had a management group meeting in February 2011, where I told the other participants what a fine year we had ahead with order books nearly full,” recalls Scanpole Oy’s Business Director Petri Rajasuo. After just a month, the Arab Spring had affected the order base so that more than 70% of the deals already agreed were cancelled. We were facing a completely new situation.”

Around the same time the company had acquired production facilities in Norway and Sweden. Due to changes in business, the production facility in Sweden was closed down, along with the Kolho production facility in Vilppula, Finland. In 2015, the company acquired a production facility in Wales.

Today, Scanpole Oy has domestic markets in Finland, Sweden, Norway and the UK, which account for more than half of the volume of operations.

Scanpole obtains raw material for pressure-treated poles from forests both in Finland (2/3) and Norway (1/3). Almost 100% of its products are made of pine due to its excellent impregnation properties. In addition, the company supplies more robust poles, made of Douglas fir obtained from Central Europe, to Norway for use in transmission networks or power lines.

It can be impregnated according to American standards, says Rajasuo. These are very large poles that are naturally not found in Nordic forests. “The diameter of Douglas fir poles can be 52 cm at the butt and 35 cm at the top of tree, and they can be up to 24 metres long.

Breakaway poles are also produced at the Höljäkkä plant, by applying a special method.  They are light poles with a fabricated section at the butt that reduces the pole’s impact resistance. The idea is that the pole breaks from a point above ground if it is hit by a car, for example. It is intended to dissipate the vehicle’s impact energy without harm to the passengers. This type of breakaway safety pole is generally used along all roads in Finland with a speed limit over 60 km/h.

Although it specialises in poles, Scanpole also manufactures impregnated wood for infrastructure building, such as railway sleepers, and supplies large wooden road bridge structures for subcontractors, along with materials for various individual projects that require weatherproof wood. Bridges with wooden structures are mainly made in Norway. In addition, the company produces various types of support beams for pole lines and fencing poles.

Fencing poles are an increasingly important product group for the company. They are exported particularly to the UK, but there is also a market for them in the Nordic countries. Pressure-treated fencing poles are used in agriculture and for improving road safety, such as in game fences.

Scanpoles production plant in Höljäkkä produces 160,000–200,000 wooden poles each year. The raw material comes from nearby regions in North Karelia, Kainuu and North Savo. The Höljäkkä production plant has about 30 employees in production and four in the office.

The production plant applies flexible shift work: “We work in day shifts, in two or three shifts. Most of the time the impregnation plant operates on a 3/7 basis, i.e. we work around the clock seven days a week,” says production manager Jarmo Kemppainen, describing the industry that is affected by seasonal variation.

During seasonal peaks, the Höljäkkä production plant has also produced impregnated wood for PrimaTimber Oy, which belongs to the same group.

We aim to achieve carbon-neutrality throughout the entire group by 2035. Over the last two years, we have carefully analysed and calculated the carbon footprint of our operations, including the activities of subcontractors. 

We have already started planning and taking measures in order to reduce our environmental impact. All of our companies have switched to greener electricity, our machinery is being modernised, and we are continuously optimising our transport solutions. Careful calculations enable us to make changes where it matters most, not forgetting small deeds.

We want to continue, step by step, towards greater carbon-neutrality and want our calculations to be accurate. For us it is important to make sure that our actions have a real impact.
