Jukola, the world's biggest relay orienteering competition will take place in Lappeenranta Finland in summer 2016. Nordkalk is one of the major sponsors of the event.

The company plans also to participate in the event in big numbers. President and CEO Bertel Karlstedt challenged the personnel in all Nordkalk countries to gather together a team and start training for the competition.

The co-operation agreement between Nordkalk and the Jukola event organiser, Lappeen Riento was signed on 12 November 2014. It includes e.g. deliveries of the aggregates needed in the building of the competition centre.

- Nordkalk is a forerunner in producing lime based products, so what better suited for us than hosting the opening leg and the possibility to utilise our expertise and products in building the competition venue, says Division Director Jarkko Kaplin.
