More about me and my company, welcome!
My name is Jari Jaakola. I live in the city of Oulu in central Finland – in a log house, of course. We are very fond of our cosy and healthy form of living near the city’s amenities.
I am a construction engineer by education. My versatile work experience for the past 20 years consists of the construction field and work as an export manager for different building companies.
One of my long-term dreams was to establish my own export company for timber and wooden buildings. The decision was brooding in my mind for years, until I founded the Finnish Polarlog Oy in 2008. Now I have contacts with retail companies in several export countries, and the company’s operations are stable. With my own company, I can implement the needs and demands of different clientele. The versatility and pricing of the products I offer, on the other hand, benefit retail companies. The Finnish raw material and reliability provide good premises for success.
Nature provides excellent balance for my work. My hobbies include forest improvement work in my own plot of forest land. It makes me think about the development of wood from a seedling to the logging phase. I also make use of the berries and game available in the autumn to store for winter. Exercise is also important for me. My latest hobby is golf. I’ve passed the green card and my next aim is to improve my levelling.
