We are Sulotek Ltd
Our business started from a desire to do things differently, in a new but competitive way. Ilkka Rämänen, who heads our product development team, has long experience in America from the time computer controlled manufacturing was introduced in American engineering industry.
When he returned to Finland to retire, he met Santeri Sulo, the founder of Sulotek, who wanted to develop hot wire cutting and versify the use of polystyrene and enhance its recycling and reuse.
Their ways of thinking were similar, the product development team got a new member and after a couple of years and some experiments the team produced a completely new kind of hot wire cutting method based on unique CNC software and a CNC hot wire cutting robot with multiple wires.
Bold, curious, humble and cooperative, we still continue on the road laid out by that idea. We started as a corporation in 2010 and very soon started manufacturing. By the end of 2014, we introduced our next generation large-scale cutter. We network efficiently with the product development units, experts and manufacturers of various sectors.
The business idea of Sulotek Ltd is to utilize the constantly evolving possibilities of CNC programming in hot wire cutting, while meeting the market demands of today and tomorrow as the leading supplier of this special niche.
The unique, completely new and versatile variable software for CNC cutting and its application, the 3D cutting robots, developed by our company, are the basis of our financially profitable business. Thanks to this software and production line, ever since 2011, Sulotek Ltd has focused on meeting the needs of businesses and organizations with its versatile polystyrene material and using different finishing techniques. We offer solutions for creating packaging and advertizing material, product enlargements, props, interior decoration elements, ship interiors, precision insulation just to mention a few. We benefit our customers with cost-efficient, novel solutions by combining the experience and engineering competence of our cooperation network to expert engineers of many fields and the knowhow of our clients. We are able to produce astounding unique pieces and to launch serial production at short notice.
The values of a small, flexible company spring from its owners, the key figures in the company, its cooperating network, clients, and life in general.
We believe in the ability and desire of inspired networks to do things better tomorrow than today, and to approach issues from new angles with an open mind.
