Behind the Tiileri brand there is a story of Finnish entrepreneurship dating back for over 60 years already. In 1952 in the Seppälä village a blacksmith died, and his 5 sons remained with their mother to wonder what to live on. The knowledge of blacksmith’s work helped when the first drainage pipe machine was put together, because at that time people were still busily underdraining their fields. Luckily fields with plenty of clay to build the pipes from belonged to the boys’ and their mother’s house. The mother of the boys was known for her strict housekeeping, and she was said to be the first real managing director.
