It was already 60 years ago when the production of forest workers’ equipment such as mittens and backpacks was started in northern Central Finland, first in Pylkönmäki. In the late 1960’s the company moved to Karstula where it is still operating. The company name “Savotta” dates back to the very beginning.
Savotta's product range still includes many products used by forest professionals, like backpacks, daypacks, map cases, sledges, shelters and big camp tents. Special products like field hospitals, hall tents and various kind of carrying systems we manufacture for the use of both the Defence Forces, the Frontier Guard and relief organisations.
Savotta products are manufactured in Finland, Estonia and in order to meet the growing demand, some production batches are made in Poland.
Savotta's products have the permission to use The Key flag sign which is a certificate of Finnish origin granted by the Association for Finnish Work.
In recognition of our quality we are granted the certificate of ISO 9001:2000 H by the Finnish Defence Forces. This certificate is renewed every year.
Savotta has also been granted ISO 14001: 2015 Environmental certification.
