History

During more than 95 years Componenta has gone a long journey. The company was established in 1918 in Helsinki, Finland, by "one man" Mr. Matti Lehtonen, who was the great grandfather of the current President and CEO.

In the very beginning Mr. Matti Lehtonen, the owner of the iron foundry, stated that the main factors creating success will be high quality of the products, competitive prices, quick deliveries and good customer service based on understanding and fulfilling the needs of the customers. The mentioned issues still form the basis for Componenta's competitiveness.

Today Componenta is the major cast component supplier in Europe. Our goal is to be the preferred casting solutions provider, locally.
