Opening Ceremony and Party at the Kilkanen Oy New Factory in Vaasa – The Largest Investment of Kilkanen and Leinolat Group

Great weather congratulated Kilkanen staff and guests during the official opening of the new factory. The factory is neighboring the new Wärtsilä Smart Technology Hub in Vaskiluoto, Vaasa and is a part of the Energy Ecosystem being built in the area. In the ceremony the CEO of Leinolat Group, Lars-Erik Schöring, gave the welcome speech with some words about the history of Kilkanen and Leinolat, but focusing on the future and the long-term partnerships with customers and other stakeholders.

Other greetings were given by Tomas Häyry from behalf of the city of Vaasa and Vesa Riihimäki from Wärtsilä. Hippi Hovi from the Coastal-Ostrobothnian Entrepreneurs hosted the ceremony.

The most touching moment of the ceremony was when the long-term CEO of Kilkanen, Jouni Kilkanen, was given the honors in the form of golden entrepreneur medal for his long career and achievements as an entrepreneur for 31 years. In his interview, Jouni emphasized the importance of Kilkanen's personnel.

– Our personnel are the spirit of our company. Without their hard work, commitment, and flexibility we could not have kept the factory running during the move.

Jouni also thanked many other people and business partners, who ensured that the construction project and the move were successfully completed in time.

In the interview Jouni promised that this is not the end of the investments and growth of Kilkanen. In the future Kilkanen will continue to develop and grow.

– We want to go further and keep going forward.

– This investment shows our faith for the future and to the energy ecosystem in Vaasa. This investment strengthens Kilkanen's machining capability for our current customers and it creates a competitive edge for acquiring new ones, says Lars-Erik Schöring.
