About us

Pilaster Oy has developed a futureproof building service that is patented in more than 35 countries.

Pilaster is also involved in the development of future energy solutions and sustainability models in cooperation with, among others, VTT Technical Research Centre Of Finland’s and Smart & Clean Foundation’s Renovation Leap project, VTT’s and Smart & Clean Foundation’s Good Indoor Air service project, the City of Turku’s sustainable energy project, the Business Finland Smart Otaniemi project and Nordic Smart Building.

Pilaster Oy received The Strongest in Finland certificate in 2018 for being a powerful influence in the Finnish economy now and in the future, and is supported by Business Finland, the Centres for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (ELY Centres) and Finnvera.

The Pilaster building service system was developed in cooperation with experienced marine, mechanical and electrical engineers and construction professionals.

Pilaster has also partnered with companies specializing in sustainable development and the use of renewable energy sources.

The development of the Pilaster system focuses on three main objectives:

– Meet national and municipal targets for climate change, energy efficiency, increased use of renewable energy and emissions reduction.

– Modernize building service technology and improve indoor air quality

– Improve modern renovation techniques and quality: Even today, most building renovations rely on conventional repair and construction methods. This can often lead to delays, higher costs, poor quality and a negative impact on living comfort.

The question is, how can we do things differently?

Managing Director Janne Kantola

The idea behind the Pilaster system came to Pilaster’s managing director Janne Kantola when he encountered first-hand the hassle and nuisance of a conventional building renovation. He and his family were forced to leave their home for three months due to unbearable dust and noise. Instead of accepting defeat, Janne turned this experience into a better way to renovate in the 21st century.

The name of the company is an architectural element in classical architecture used to give the appearance of a supporting column.
