Lithuania is a small European state on the shore of the Baltic Sea, similar in size to Ireland. It is neighbored by Latvia, Belarus, Poland and Russia. Its language, Lithuanian, is the oldest living Indo-European language and used by just four million people across the world.
Lithuania is known for laser and biotechnologies, its modern furniture and woodworking industry, metalworking, shipbuilding and textiles.
Sapa opened a sales office in Lithuania in 1998, with two employees. Today, the company has a sales office and extrusion fabrication plant in Kaunas, employing 100 people. Sapa also employs four persons at its Sapa Building System warehouse and sales office in Vilnius.

We believe our strengths in Lithuania are:
Sapa’s fabrication team in Lithuania is ambitious, customer-oriented, competent and creative. The company offers support in product development, profile design, fabrication, assembly and logistics. In fabrication, Sapa in Lithuania specializes in cutting, short and long CNC, punching, assembly and kitting operations.
The building systems unit is smaller, but equally engaged in achieving customer satisfaction. It is customer-focused, lean and fast in serving customers, architects, contractors and other building influencers.
A project we are proud of:
Sapa Profiliai UAB has worked on a variety of projects for IKEA – Stolmen, Avsikt, Stockholm, Effective – since 2004. A new project, Elvarli, kicks off in January 2016.
The company is also a subcontractor delivering parts for HP printers (pictured). Such projects have high demands on quality and advanced CNC machining.
