In the last few years, Stala has developed its selection and created innovative solutions for home interior design. The company holds as very strong market position in the Nordic countries, is the market leader in Finland, and its greatest growth potential is in the international market. Stala’s operations have always been guided by design, functionality and quality, which concerns the products, customer relations and operations. The Lahti factory manufactures sustainably products equipped with markings that prove their Finnish origin (Design from Finland and Key Flag). Earlier in the year, the patterned StalaTex™ stainless steel surfaces were awarded the internationally recognised Green GOOD DESIGN 2021 Award.
