Valmet Automotive has been ranked as one of the top ten most passionate companies in the Finnish Passion for Business 2016 campaign.

The Passion for Business 2016 campaign aims to provoke discussion about boosting passion for business and to highlight inspiring, passionate stories of companies in Finland. Savonlinna Opera Festival acted as the campaign coordinator with partners Tekes, the Junior Chamber International Finland and the Family Business union.

The Junior Chamber International Finland was in charge for collecting the stories. The aim was 100 stories, but in the end a total of 400 companies participated in the campaign. Valmet Automotive was selected as one of the campaign’s ten leading companies at the Passion for Business gala on April 16, 2016.

– The fact that Valmet Automotive was selected into the top ten is a truly remarkable indication that we have done things right, and this has been generally recognized. I hope our example gives courage and passion for other Finnish companies, says Pasi Rannus, SVP Manufacturing business line.

– These business stories show that there is passion and strong trust in the economic recovery in Finland. We want to share these stories as examples and incentives to all, says Jan Strandholm, General Director of Savonlinna Opera Festival.
