Product development and production

Production plants

Berner’s production plants are located in Heinävesi in Eastern Finland. We employ approximately 50 people at our production plants and we are among the largest industrial employers in the municipality.

With decades of experience, we manufacture cosmetics and hygiene products, car care products, plant protection agents, washing and cleaning detergents and vinegar products. Our best-known brands include XZ, LV, Herbina, Ainu, Oxygenol, Tummeli, Lasol, Korrek, Heti and Rajamäen.

Our operations are certified pursuant to the ISO 9001 quality management certificate, the ISO 14001 environmental management certificate and the ISO 22716 certificate regarding the manufacture and storage of cosmetics and hygiene products. We want to offer Finns only the best, and keeping this promise requires that we monitor the quality of our products from product development all the way to the consumer.

At Berner, we place a high value on keeping production in Finnish hands and having the ability to employ people both directly and indirectly, also in smaller towns.

Responsible production and new products

We began manufacturing several new products last year. Production volumes were increased by significant new products introduced in segments such as windscreen washing fluids, liquid laundry detergents and household cleaning products. New products were also added to the XZ, Oxygenol and Rajamäen product families for production in Heinävesi.

Berner’s new ERP system, to be deployed in 2019, will enable more efficient and transparent supply chain management. In Heinävesi, the new system will enable us to significantly improve the efficiency of our production planning and logistics processes, among other things.
