Our company history
The Tekniseri story began in 1985 when Tekniseri Ky was founded to serve the labelling needs of various industries. Tekniseri developed and invested in its production and in its screen-printing know-how. In 1995, the company went from a joint partnership to a limited liability company and the name changed to Tekniseri Oy. Between 1995 and 2008, Tekniseri focused on growing its business making several acquisitions. In 2008 the main owners of Tekniseri sold the company to the venture capitalists Teknoventure, who became the company’s main owners. In the 2010s, Tekniseri developed and invested in various manufacturing methods, quality and customer service. The company was restructured, and production was concentrated in Kempele and Pori, Finland. The customer service points were increased and the service offering expanded. In the 2010s, Tekniseri expanded its product portfolio by adding manufacturing of membrane-switches, electronic insulations and thick raw material cutting and printing services. At the same time, the company modernized its production processes, making them more ecological and cost-efficient. In 2010, the company expanded its operations and services geographically by opening a factory and service hub in Suzhou, China. The Chinese production grew and started to serve Asian customers, as well as many other customers internationally. In 2017 Teknoventure sold its shares to the Swedish investment company Karnell K4.
Karnell K4 and Tekniseri want to develop the company’s future in cooperation with its customers and employees.
As a manufacturer of technically demanding finished products, Tekniseri manages the whole production process. The cooperation the company began in its time with Nokia, Ericsson and ABB has opened doors to other customers and allowed Tekniseri to grow in a managed way. The company has also grown thanks to its international customers, whose share is currently growing. This has enabled good, well-functioning production and product quality, as customers have attested over the years. Today, Tekniseri supports its customers through a diverse range of production methods.
