Meet our management



A family business – Entrepreneur Jukka Nummi

Stala Group was founded in 1972, starting with kitchen sinks. Soon after that larger sinks for commercial and institutional kitchens were requested by our customers and for those, a stainless steel supporting structure was required. This led to the start of our tube production, beginning in 1974. The rest of the story is well known in our specialized field all over the world.

In the year 2000, Stala Group was divided into Stala Oy (kitchen sinks) and Stalatube Oy (constructional tubes). In 2004 a management generation change was made in the company. 

I started as an entrepreneur at Stalatube and soon after that I became the managing director of the company. From the beginning of 2020 I handed over the management to Sami Packalén, our long-time SVP of Sales and Marketing. Now I serve the company as the full-time Chairman of the Board.

Family-owned operational ownership brings decision-making closer and ensures that the company stays strongly competitive.  

Thank you for your trust in Stalatube and I offer you a warm welcome to our future co-operation!

Sami Packalén - CEO with vision and drive

Sami Packalén (46), M.Sc and EMBA, started as CEO of Stalatube Oy in the beginning of 2020. Packalén transfered from the position of Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing and has long experience in the stainless steel business after working in the company since 1999.

"I have been working with Stalatube for nearly twenty years and during that time I’ve been involved in building a global brand and taking the sales to new figures. I am now excited to continue developing Stalatube as a company."

For Packalén, Stalatube’s keys to success are listening to customers, a distinctive and unique range of products and services - and working together, meaning teamwork among the entire staff.

Sami brings with him strong knowledge of the field, as well as customer insight and energetic leadership. “I want Stalatube to develop into even stronger international company, capable of serving its customers locally and deliver customer-specific solutions fast, flexibly and cost-efficiently.”
