Mr. Jorma Verterinen started SPT-Painting Oy (former Suomen Lattiasinkous Oy) in 1990 as a small family business with a couple of employees. The initial business concept involved shot blasting concrete floors and decks. Slowly the company also began installing acrylic and epoxy floor coatings and, by the end of the 1990s the company had about ten employees, with the floor coating operation accounting for about half of its turnover.
In the first decade of the 2000s, SPT-Painting worked primarily in the Russian market. The growth there was very strong at the time and many significant projects were contracted in St Petersburg, Moscow, Tver, Saratov and Yekaterinburg, for example.
In 2012, SPT-Painting began focusing on the Finnish market and acquired the ship deck coating business from Lemminkäinen. Today, the company is a leader in the area of floor coatings, with a significant market share and 25 employees. The customer base consists primarily of medium and large construction companies, industrial companies and shipyards and their sub-contractors. SPT-Painting is contracted to coat some 200,000 square meters of floor space annually.
SPT-Painting’s strength lies in listening carefully to customers and their needs and then fulfilling those needs with high-quality products, superior workmanship and 100-percent reliability.
“Our main target is to keep our customer satisfaction at a very high level,” says Harri Vesterinen, son of the founder of the company and CEO of SPT-Painting Oy. “Our tools and installation equipment always use the latest technology.”
“SPT has worked rigorously and consistently to achieve its current position and, above all, the trust of its customers. Now and in the future, our aim is to be the floor coating company that develops the entire flooring business, adding value for customers with high-quality products and services,” says Harri Vesterinen. “I am very proud and glad to have Nordic Waterproofing as our strong owner, enabling the continued development and growth of our business!”
