Pumppulohja´s history

The roots of the Pumppulohja grows deep in Lohja’s history.

History of Oy Pumppulohja Ab starts In 1946 when Lohjan Kalkkitehdas Oy bought Iskumetalli Oy, which two years later started as a licensed manufacturer of Luxor radios together with pump manufacturing.

Together with Luxor Radios ISKUMETALLI manufactured Mobila- heat line pumps in Lohja’s factory Mobila – heatline pumps. HS 25.01.1953

In 1956 product range already included ISKU pumps. Today, more than 65 years later, ISKU-Jet automatic water pumps and ISKU water ring pumps are modern, efficient and durable product. ISKU remains to be a quality conscious choice. HS 18.06.1956

In 1958, in addition to pumps and Luxor radios, ISKUMETALLI began manufacturing black and white televisions. In 1964, ISKUMETALLI was merged with the Lohja Kalkkitehdas and in 1971, home electronics got a new brand name - Finlux.

Pump manufacturing, import, maintenance, product development ...

Lohjan Kalkkitehdas Oy Iskumetalli continued the manufacture of pumps and product development. In 1980, Virkkala pump factory began manufacturing pressure vessels for use in pumping stations. In 1988, Oy Lohja Ab acquired tank manufacturer in Hanko - Oy Söderman's Konepaja Ab. Production was transferred to Virkkala in connection with the manufacture of pumps.
In 1970s Oy Pumppulohja Ab started as a distributer (agent / sale) of Weda drainage pumps. In the 1990s, Pumppulohja entered into a co-operation agreement with the manufacturer of Pumpex drainage pumps, after which we became the representative for Grindex drainage pumps. Today, a wide range of Weda drainage pumps is available once again. Oy Pumppulohja Ab has a very long tradition in the sale and maintenance of drainage pumps.

In 1965, ISKUMETALLI's advertising department was very innovative. Iskumatic heaters developed by Oy Lohja Ab were used as “an antidote to the cooling of the climate” observed at that time. Notification HS 01.09.1965

Oy PUMPPULOHJA Ab was found in 1991 through Management Buy Out transaction. The founders and majority shareholders of Oy Lohja Ab, a company that continued to manufacture pumps and pressure vessels, were Kaj Stigell and Erkki Virta. Pumppulohja's business was started in the former premises of the Virkkala’s factory area.

1993 - Own factory facilities for pumps and pressure vessels manufacturing and subsidiary in Saukkola

In 1993, Oy Pumppulohja Ab bought its own 3,500 m2 production facilities in Nummi-Pusula's Saukkola area. As production expanded, additional premises of 1,500 m² on a neighboring plot were purchased in 1995. In the same year, Oy WatMan Ab, a subsidiary operating in the water treatment industry, was found together with participation of Hannu Mäkinen and Antti Helanterä. In this way, Oy Pumppohja Ab became a highly professional water treatment operator. Operations also expanded rapidly to the treatment of domestic water, both in households and in the municipal and industrial sectors. Today, Oy Pumppulohja Ab is leading manufacturer of water equipment for luxury cruise ships. Our devices are e.g. energy efficient reverse osmosis systems and thus also environmentally friendly.
In 2004, another Management Buy Out transaction took place and Jukka Malinen, Mari Virta, Stefan Stigell, Reijo Lehtinen, Hannu Mäkinen and Antti Helanterä became new owners of the company. Gävle Tryckärl och Vatten AB was founded in 2012 and Gävle Galvan's pressure vessel business continued in Gävle.

Finnish water treatment goes international.

In 2019, Lakers Group, the leading independent water pump service company in the Nordic countries, acquired shares of Oy Pumppulohja Ab. Lakers Group is a Nordic concern, providing aftermarket services to the water and wastewater industry, maintenance, servicing, development and technical consulting related to pumps, pumping stations, electric motors and similar components.

The Lakers Group's entry as the owner of Oy Pumppulohja Ab strengthens opportunities in the Nordic market. Pumppulohja's domestic business will remain unchanged and we will increase exports to the Nordic countries and the maritime industry.

In the 20th century, the main product groups of Oy Pumppulohja Ab are: pumps, pressure vessels and water filters - targeting different sectors: from individual households to agricultural, industrial and construction, all those sectors which are seeking water treatment assistance.
