Architecture. Design. Landscape.
Landscape architecture design and garden planning
Designed and manufactured in Finland, Germany and USA, UPM ProFi products have set new standards in landscape architecture, urban design and garden planning. The composite decking products have been awarded the Green Good Design award and used in several international award-winning architecture design projects.

Composite as a material
Material innovation - called UPM ProFi - was invented in 2005. The new composite offered better colour durability and stain resistance than traditional wpc deckings. Over 60% of the raw material of the new composite could be sourced from self-adhesive label waste. No recycling solution previously existed for this waste.
Award winning and recognized
The innovation behind the development of UPM ProFi as a new sustainable material has been recognized with several prestigious awards.
- Green Good Design. UPM ProFi winner in 2010. The award is a distinguished international recognition awarded to the best sustainable solutions and materials.
- Sustainable Innovation Management Prize at Germany's Best Innovator Awards. UPM was awarded the “Sustainable Innovation Management” prize at the “Best Innovator 2010” awards in Germany.
- Paysalia, France. UPM ProFi was nominated the best product by visitors in France's leading landscape exhibition Paysalia in 2009.
Green Good Design Award is Awarded by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.
Networking with local landscapers and architects
We work in a close co-operation with a network of local landscapers and landscape architects arranging WPC decking trainings and consulting in landscape architecture and urban design. We are a member of GaLaBau in Germany, UNEP in France and The Royal Institute of British Architects RIBA in UK.
