Kotkamills Logo


The history of Kotkamills Oy started when Hans Gutzeit from Norway founded Finland’s most modern steam-powered sawmill on Kotkansaari island in 1872. At the time of its inauguration on 16 November 1872, the ‘Norwegian sawmill’, as it was called, employed 60 people, most of whom came from Norway. The mill brought a Norwegian colony of around 250 people to Kotka, at the time a town of just 800 inhabitants.

New UPM Grada 2000 sets new benchmark for form pressing. A single UPM Grada component can be formed in less than one minute. Imagine that – 60 components in an hour! Best of all, form pressing with UPM Grada can be fully automated. Alternatively, it only takes one person to operate a UPM Grada form pressing unit in manual run. All this with unforeseen design opportunities.
