Customer-specific planning has begun and will be announced to parties thereof in the coming weeks.

Tapio Alanko (52) will resign from his current position in Marvaco in mid-March. He will go on to run a project that has been on the planning table for years, to be announced later in the spring. His contribution to the current scale of Marvaco's business has been significant, and his active personality has been widely recognized in our industry. Under Tapio's management, we have developed customer-centric operating models and improved our technical quality with many of our customers. For us, leaving Tapio is accompanied by a lot of good memories. During these years in Marvaco he has been known as enthusiastic and committed personality. Tapio himself wants to remind everyone: "Marvaco's top talents, reinforced with new professionals for sales and management at Ulvila, has assured that I can take on new challenges now." We have agreed that Tapio will support Esa and Harri in transferring customer-specific information to new hands during the spring. We want to thank Tapio for his contribution of over 10 years at Marvaco!
