Tikkurila’s operations are divided into two business areas. Tikkurila Deco, which accounts for roughly 80 percent of revenues and sells decorative paints to consumers and professionals in more than 5,000 retail sales outlets in more than 40 countries, while Tikkurila Industrial Coatings, which accounts for 20 percent of revenues, provides coating solutions to customers in the wood and metal industries. Tikkurila is the leading regional paints and coatings company in Finland, Sweden and Russia. During the year, the Finland pavilion received a Golden Statue for the best Pavilion Design in category B when the best pavilions of Shanghai World EXPO 2010 were awarded at the year-end by BIE (Bureau International des Expositions) in Shanghai. Tikkurila supplied paints and lacquers for the pavilion's steel frame, all the interiors as well as the entrance and the courtyard exterior walls. Visitors were especially charmed by the "frozen lake" with painted fish decorations on white concrete floors.
