Competitiveness from innovations

Southwest Finland hosts 85 % of Finland’s maritime industry.

The expertise of companies in the maritime and metal industries has broad application potential across other sectors. Companies are involved in, for example, repairing and renovating cruisers, and manufacturing multi-purpose vessels and offshore industry structures



The know-how is now expanding into new application areas, including temporary residential solutions for crisis areas, renovation of block buildings and floating housing. 

The maritime industry and shipping employ 8,000 people in 400 companies in the Turku region.
