Finn Lamex is a Finnish-based global manufacturer of top-quality laminated windscreens for commercial vehicles and off-road machinery. They specialize in windscreens for buses and coaches. For example, on the red double-decker buses in London, one can see their windscreens.

We pay attention to detail that makes premium quality and successful deliveries possible. Having the latest technology available is a key ingredient when designing our production capabilities for growth,” says Tero Toivanen, Managing Director of Finn Lamex.
