Our history

Our history


It all began in 1948...

That was the year when an old farm with a hen house was leased for the purposes of paint making in Tuomarila, Espoo (Finland). The hen house was renovated and came to house a laboratory. Production started after this, with the strength of one man and a pan mill.

Teknos's first product was the caseine paint Tuomo, named after the locality of Tuomarila. 

Our company's beginnings have been noted in the design of our logo, which sports both a cockerel and a paintbrush.
