Lumon expands its operations as consumer sales launch in Poland
“We have been in the market in Poland already for around 20 years. We completed some of our first projects there with a partner, and after our operations continued largely through resellers. In the past year, we have focused on project sales, but are now expanding to launch consumer sales in the Warsaw -area,” says CEO of Lumon Group, Jussi Kinnunen.
“The process of establishing the business unit is currently underway, with recruitments beginning already this year. Our goal is to build our own independent sales and installation units, in the same way as in other areas where we have consumer -focused sales,” continues Business Director of CE -Countries, Antti Vänskä.
“The market in Poland is similar to the one in Spain, which is currently one of our most successful export countries. Around 85% of residents and homeowners are living in apartment buildings in the Warsaw -area. Due to limited space, residents are eager to maximize the use of their balconies, to enable the possibility for more room for life,” Vänskä explains.

“It’s an easy choice for a developer as a value add-on”
Lumon’s glazing systems add value to any balcony by turning unprotected outdoor spaces into places with protection from the weather, providing more room for life. For developers and architects, glazing provides an easy opportunity to implement a value add-on.
Celebrating 30 years of better homes in Spain
When Lumon first embarked on its mission to change the way outdoor living is experienced in a small town in Finland, it was hard to imagine that some decades later, a 30M euro modern production facility for balcony glazing would be constructed in the heart of Andalusia. The decision of this extensive investment followed years of rapid growth in the Spanish market for Lumon, now celebrating its 30-year anniversary.
German visitors were impressed by Lumon’s impact on Finnish urban construction
Lumon first started its B2B sales operations in Germany in the mid 90’s, officially establishing a sister organization Lumon Deutschland GmbH in 2004. Lumon has continued to make its mark in the German cityscapes, with prominent growth especially in recent years. This growth is for example marked by the soon-completion of one of Lumon’s most significant projects in Germany, Roots, which will serve as a landmark in the city of Hamburg by the River Elbe.
