Environmentally friendly production in Rauma.
The heart of our operations is located in Rauma in Satakunta, Finland. The factory employs some 50 professionals who manufacture safe, high-quality kitchen supplies for cooking, storage, delivery and cleaning. Production moved to the current facilities in 1998, to the site of an old windscreen factory. Our factory outlet is also located next to the factory.
In addition to in-house production, our modern warehouse ensures excellent security of supply and fast deliveries to our customers.
Fredman products are made of materials that have been selected based on their environmental friendliness. In outsourcing, we prefer Finnish suppliers whenever possible. We are also constantly working on our sustainability vision that by 2030, all our products will be both recyclable and made of renewable materials.
Our production is 100% powered by green energy. We generate about 20% of our yearly energy needs in our own solar power plant. Our goal is to achieve net zero emissions at our factory by the end of 2022.
