In 2001 the name Terästyöpaja was changed to TTP-Yhtiöt Ltd, and a year later the company started to manufacture power plant structures in Lievestuore. Moreover, in 2006 the main part of the company was sold to Mid-Invest Oy foundation, to be bought in 2008 by Primaca Ltd, which divided the company into TTP-Yhtiöt Ltd and HögforsSteka Ltd.
