Humppila Glass was a Finnish company that was in production between 1952 and 1986. Glass manufacture in Humppila, Southern Finland was founded by three brothers, Jonni, Martti, and Olavi Helander, all former glass blowers at Nuutajärvi. In 1970 the company was bought by Rolf Alander. Humppila took over the Mumela factory in 1979, and in 1986 was taken over by Nuutajärvi; in 1988 Humppila became part of the newly merged littala-Nuutajärvi Oy.
