We can design boat canopies and cushions with high-tech 3D programming and with 3D-scanning. We digitalize the patterns and have the ability to cut them automatically with our cutting machines.

Our headquarters are in Kuopio where we operate in modern facilities of over 2,700 m2. We also have factories in Poland and Portugal to serve our customers Europe-wide. VA-Varuste Poland is located in Suwałki, with a new 2,400 m2 factory opened in 2017. Our newest factory was opened in late 2021 in Portugal. VA-Varuste Portugal has premises covering about 2,000 m2 in Monçao. We already employ almost 200 textile professionals.
Efficient production
We make the products from start to finish in our own facilities – for example, our own metal department takes care of the canopy arches. Our highly efficient production ensures high-quality products and competitive prices.
