Farmer Matti Honkala started to produce wooden packages in his house alongside his other job. In three years he had to move to an old machine shelter and he changed the material from wood to metal. The first machine was bought in 1986.
Honkala then got rid of the kiln and two barns and built a new 900m2 machinery hall in 1987. At this time he incorporated his business.

To extend the machinery hall they built an office during the spring in 1998. After dismantling the cowhouse a supply hall was built in its place in autumn the same year.From the current machinery the first one to arrive was the Mazak VTC-30C in 1998.
