These were available here in Australia......but they were hugely expensive. I have a reflector version. From Suutarila, c1985.

Manufactured articles should be made to be used, not made to be sold!

Nice to hear, that these were in Australia too! I don't know where the lamp is...

OY Airam AB the only Finnish... Now one of millions Chinese...

Don't care my errors in Writing and my bad English.
LED fad off!
Fluorescent and low pressure sodium are best!

Don't loose it.....Airam stuff......the REAL Suutarila stuff, is rare and getting rarer every day now.


Were you aware that this building was their plant before Suutarila? Find a lamp made here and you will have found a rare one!

If the reflector version is same what I think, it is for plant growing. I have same.
I didn’t know this older Airam’s plant.

The Airam Wikipedia site says that, they change lamp production to Suutarila in 70's. Here is lot of information of Airam.

Suutarila was their third site 1944-2010 Although I think operations carried out at 6 Lampputie were expanded in 1976, 1979 and 1986.
Eira was their second site, 1925-1980
The first site was in Uudenmaankatu...1922-1925 I think, so they were not at this site for very long.

All this information comes from Roi Hartmann and various web sites. including the one linked to above.

Name of "Oy Airam AB" first used in 1938. Initially known as Scheibert Brothers and Soumen Sahkolamppuethdas Oywas.

I think THIS was the original, original site...1922-25.


They also had another plant, way out east at Kesalahti that ran from 1977-1991, making Christmas Light Garlands.

These days Airam has a "symbiosis" with Meganan/Neonlit Loasheng of Xiamen.

In the 1970's, '80's and '90's Airam lamps were considered to be of the highest quality, fetched high prices and were deemed with great respect...something for all Finniah people to be justly proud.


I have in my collection one Airam Mercury lamp, a HgLX 125 and about half a dozen incandescents, two of which are there Neodymium doped types.

They made their first TL lamps in 1950, first high pressure mercury in 1955 and first high pressure sodium in 1975. These Neodymium doped incandescents were first made in 1967.

I still seek an Airam High Pressure Sodium if anybody ever finds one!


Suutarila holds the distinction of the northern most lamp plant on Earth!

I'm not sure if Airam ever had it's own hps production. The ones I've seen have always been made for Airam by somebody else.

James seems to reckon they made them at Suutarila starting in 1975....I'll have to ask him what his reference was...but if a Finnish person....in Finland, such as yourself, reckons they have never seen a genuine one then maybe they were re-badged and a genuine Finniah HPS is just a "ghost"...a figment of our imaginations!

The HgLX 125 I have certainly looks Finnish...the fine details are like no other mercury lamp I own.
Many countries made High Pressure Mercury lamps however, but few progressed to High Pressure Sodium....the most unusual High Pressure Sodium in my collection in this regard is from Alberton, Johannesberg, South Africa!

I think the reason for the lack of hps from smaller manufacturers were probably because hps manufacturing was newer, more complicated technology to master and required lots of R&D. I know Airam did at least research about hps but don't know did they ever star their own production before outsourcing and if yes, in what scale.

You can still come across old hps lamps from other manufacturers from time to time but I have never come across Airam hps lamp that says made in Finland.

I have seen a You Tube Video of High Pressure Sodium lamps being made in India....it is quite interesting to see people making stuff they don't really understand. The part where the arc tubes are closed is all done in a machine which renders it impossible to see what is actually happening...but interesting none the less. I'll see of I can find it...

Yep, found 'em, there are two if them....hope they arn't geoblocked in Rovaniemi...
