Sami Mykkänen, CEO of Enersize comments:
"With his long experience in the manufacturing sector, Sami Kyllönen has a good understanding of what Enersize’s customers demand and important knowledge of how factory-based decision-making processes and requirements affect both sales and implementation, which allows us to further streamline these processes. In order to achieve our business goals, a strong presence in China is necessary.

Now we are strengthening our Chinese operational capabilities with new powerful, proven and knowledgeable resources in China, something that we expect will benefit both from new sales and the development of our existing projects. This is an important step because the Chinese customers put a high value on a strong operational presence in China."
