Meet The Member – Valaistus MK Oy

Who are you?
My name is Juhana Haukioja, entrepreneur and owner at Valaistus MK Oy.  

What is your company specialized in?
Valaistus MK Oy offers hands on service for interior designers and architects to choose the best lighting solutions for any space. We represent several European lighting manufacturers and do bespoke product tailoring to fullfill the demanding needs of public spaces, offices, maritime industry, hotels, and restaurants.

Tell us about your clients and other key shareholders or partners?
Since 2003 interior architects and designers have used Valaistus MK’s services to help design cost-effective yet still high-quality lighting solutions in thousands of hotel rooms, suites, restaurants, and cabins. We have delivered lighting fixtures all around the world no matter where the project takes place. With our trusted partners we can do even the most demanding, completely custom lighting solutions without restriction to certain material types.

What services or products do you offer to other YardMate members?
First of all we offer more competitive pricing for any type of luminaires. As we know from the bigger projects every euro matters in the competition and our job is to make sure that you are not losing the project because of too expensive light fixtures. Via co-operation we can specify high-quality yet cost effective products to fulfill the needs required.

Our motto is “Don’t spend money to the basic stuff but focus on the most meaningful eyecatchers that you will be remembered by.”

What are your expectations for YardMate?
We expect to find long-term, trustful partnerships from the YardMate’s Members and to win and sometimes lose projects together in the industry.

What are your future needs regarding personnel?
We have everything ready to go and we have our own subcontractor networks if required when necessary.

What are your future needs regarding sub-contractors and partners?
We need to meet the interior architects and designers as early as possible to help them in their work also in the future projects we need to co-operate with electrical design and installation companies to do the correct solutions starting from the design table. That’s how the most cost-effective solutions are made of.

Anything else you wish to say to us?
Have a great day and let’s make brighter tomorrow together 💡
