Valinte was founded in 1959 by entrepreneur Into Lintero. The name Valinte is derived from valaisin (lamp in finish) and the surname of the founder Lintero. The factory produced lighting out of metal, often combined with acrylic or opaque glass. The company was renamed Lampukas Oy in the 1970’s and it was later moved to Saarijärvi where it still functions today. The factory doesn’t however make the kind of designed light fixtures it used to anymore. Into Lintero died in 1996.
