Entrepreneur behind the company

A man behind Lapkaara is the entrepreneur Arto Kankaala, 31. Arto originally studied to become a tradesman (University of Applied Sciences), but after graduation he started to think about entrepreneurship. Lapkaara had been established in the 90s. The company was transferred to S&A Kankaala Oy, i.e. Arto Kankaala and his wife Sara Kankaala in 2016, and the operations have been expanded ever since towards a full-service car repair shop. 

Business activities have also included setbacks, but with hard work they have also been overcome. Arto has attended several different trainings to develop his business activities. “You must not give up, I am 45 percent disabled. If I had stayed at home, things could have been worse,” says Arto Kankaala. The operation first started in Jääli, after which it was expanded to Ritaharju. Nowadays, all services have been centralized in the new premises in Ritaharju, with good transport connections.

Arto Kankaala received the North Ostrobothnia Entrepreneurs’ Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2021 award. 

“We have an absolutely great team. The customers’ feedback has been encouraging and it is great to continue developing the company. Customer service is our thing”, says Managing Director Arto Kankaala.
