150 years of Emil Aaltonen

On 29 August 2019, we celebrate the 150th anniversary of the industrialist Emil Aaltonen. The jubilee exhibition has its focus on the different aspects of Emil Aaltonen’s character.

“The dark blood of Aaltonen does not glow on the surface, heating up beneath the calm surface like fire in the tar pit. But the warmth and its influence are still as effective.” This was the way Suomen Kuvalehti, a Finnish magazine, described Emil Aaltonen when this man of honorary titles turned 70 years in 1939.

This factory owner was known as a demanding employer in Tampere, but also as a person with a deep belief in fairness. In both work and private life, Emil Aaltonen’s guiding principle was service; another person’s well-being was also about his well-being. Aaltonen also wanted to challenge himself constantly: “Life is battle, it is battle with oneself and one’s tendencies. Winning yourself is the greatest victory.”
