Kaptas history

Kaptas's founders Pertti Tykkyläinen and Kari Sinkkonen have in common their twenty-year careers in automation, the most valuable expertise of Perlos, a company specialised in telecom and medical business.

The importance of making production more effective as well as automation expertise had been internalised by the internationally experienced men who established Kaptas Oy in 2007. Already in 2010, a new plant was constructed in Ylämylly, Liperi. The plant was extended in 2014. Ylämylly industrial zone includes a total of 2,150 square meters of production space.

In the end of 2012, Kaptas published a unique concept for pharmaceutical industry production. The concept revolutionised the competitiveness, product development and production of the pharmaceutical industry in the early stages, when quick market access is decisive. With the concept created by Kaptas, production lines can be constructed and developed as the customer's volumes increase.
