History

Making the world a better place, one package at a time, and searching for solutions to prevent climate change.

Sataplast was originally founded in Pori, Finland, in 1963 as a family-owned business. The activities expanded in ten years, and in search of better facilities the company moved to Kokemäki in 1972. The 1980’s saw more changes, when Juha and Lea Tiitola started as entrepreneurs and bought Sataplast, along with a paper manufacturing company in Hämeenkyro. Before his entrepreneurship Juha Tiitola had a long history in the plastic industry at Amerplast.

Sataplast grew and begun the manufacture of shopping bags. This was discontinued in the 2000’s, with focus continuing in the current product line; films, different kinds of bags, sacks and hoods, along with wrapper and packaging papers. In the same decade the company ownership was also shifted to the next generation, with Tiina and Jarmo Aspelin taking the reins. In the last 10 years Aspelin has grown swiftly through new investments and business acquisitions.

In 2015, an acquisition saw Hel-Pack Oy transferred to the Aspelins, further expanding the product rage. Krister moved to head the purchased company, including the third generation in line into the business. New facilities were built for Hel-Pack in Pirkkala, and the company moved in during the spring of 2017. At the end of the same year the company structure saw a change, with Muovijaloste becoming a daughter company of Sataplast. The packaging consortium, Aspelin Group, is one of the largest operators in the business. We wish to promote Finnish industry and work with our business and make the world a better place, one package at a time, while searching for solutions to prevent climate change.
