Amer Sports moves to new location
Amer Sports Corporation’s Headquarters and Amer Sports Finland have moved. The new premises are located in the Vallila Paja Quarters, Aleksis Kiven katu 17 A, 00510 Helsinki. The former industrial site combines both existing and new construction in the unique Vallila district.
Built in 1919, the protected red brick building was originally used for building railroad cars and has now been renovated for office use, supervised by the National Board of Antiquities of Finland. After the renovation the building has 5,300 m2, fully occupied by Amer Sports. The aim is to achieve BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Methodology) environmental certification of Very Good rating for the building, the criteria of which has been taken into consideration in the reconstruction phase. The Very Good rating has not yet been achieved in any reconstruction project in Finland.

The Vallila Paja quarters provide us with a unique and dynamic environment, which ideally reflects Amer Sports’ business in sports equipment, outdoor, apparel and footwear”, said Päivi Antola, Director, Corporate Communications at Amer Sports. “The new premises have been designed to meet our needs, enabling increasingly efficient operations.”
