Published on :Friday, November 26, 2021

One of the Northern Finland’s largest private wood processing company, now Pölkky Oy with the merger, the companies that made up Pölkky Group: Ulea Oy, Kitkawood Oy, Kajaaniwood Oy and Pölkky Metsä Kmo Oy, merged into one company known as Pölkky Oy. The concrete objectives of the merger included the clarification of the corporate structure, increasing administrative efficiency and leadership development. In addition, the merger aimed to improve the company’s marketing and communications, create a more unified corporate culture, and increase employee wellbeing.

The merger did not change Pölkky’s existing business operations. However, internally the effects of the merger were significant. The new Pölkky has a unified operating model and practices, clearer instructions and communication, and a simpler management system, corporate structure, and job titles. When all the areas mentioned above are clearer, cooperation with employees became more efficient.

The internal changes affected indirectly to external operations. As the operations of five different companies merged into one, there was be only one contract, one report and one invoice. This simplified greatly the cooperation between the company and its partners.
