Scanpole's factory in Finland is located in the village of Höljäkkä, Eastern Finland, near the city of Nurmes. The factory has been in operation for more than 60 years. The impregnation plant was established for the production of sleepers, but impregnated poles soon became the main product. At the moment, 34 professionals work at the Höljäkkä impregnation plant.

Most of the poles impregnated in Höljäkkä are procured from the regions of North Karelia, North Savo and Kainuu. Scanpole's own procurement specialists are responsible for procurement. When poles are purchased from nearby areas, their transport distance is short.

The manufacture of poles begins with the debarking, after which they are sorted according to various standards and customer requirements. The poles are then toddled and allowed to dry in the open air. Some of the poles are dried in our kilns.

Dried poles are peeled to make the surface smooth and even. Poles are checked for dimensions, moisture content and quality. Marking, drilling and any other fabrication required by the customer are also performed at this stage.

The machined poles are impregnated, after which they are ready for delivery to customers.

Scanpolen Suomen tehdas sijaitsee Höljäkän kylässä, Itä-Suomessa, lähellä Nurmeksen kaupunkia. Tehdas on ollut toiminnassa yli 60 vuotta. Kyllästämö perustettiin ratapölkkyjen tuotantoa varten, mutta nopeasti päätuotteeksi nousivat kyllästetyt pylväät. Tällä hetkellä Höljäkän kyllästämöllä työskentelee 34 ammattilaista.

Suurin osa Höljäkässä kyllästettävistä pylväistä hankitaan Pohjois-Karjalan, Pohjois-Savon ja Kainuun alueilta. Hankinnasta vastaavat Scanpolen omat hankintaesimiehet ja he myös leimaavat raakapylväät leimikoilla. Kun pylväät hankitaan lähialueilta, jää niiden kuljetusmatka lyhyeksi.

Pylväiden valmistus alkaa puiden kuorinnalla, jonka jälkeen ne lajitellaan eri standardien ja asiakasvaatimusten mukaisesti. Tämän jälkeen pylväät taapeloidaan ja niiden annetaan kuivua ulkoilmassa. Osa pylväistä kuivataan kuivaamoissamme.

Kuivuneet pylväät sorvataan pinnaltaan tasaiseksi. Työstövaiheessa tarkastetaan pylvään mitat, kosteus ja laatu. Samalla tehdään asiakkaan vaatimusten mukaiset merkinnät, poraukset ja muut tarvittavat työstöt.

Työstetyt pylväät kyllästetään Höljäkässä, jonka jälkeen ne ovat valmiita toimitettavaksi asiakkaille.
