Humppila Glass was founded in Finland in 1952, by three brothers: Jonni, Martti and Olavi Helander, all former glassblowers at Nuutajarvi. In 1970 the company was bought by Rolf Alander. Designers at Humppila during the 1970's included Pertti Santalahti, Kai Blomqvist, Tauno Wirkkala, Henrik Koivula and Vesa Antikainen. Humppila took over the Kumela factory in 1979, and was itself taken over by Nuutajarvi in 1986.
