Five years ago this day, the new Suominen was born. It was the first day after Suominen Corporation's acquisition of Ahlstrom Corporation's Home and Personal wipes fabrics business area had been finalized.
That was a major change but not the only one we have experienced during these five years: After the acquisition we have divested our wipes converting and flexible packaging businesses, and Suominen has expanded to the South American market with the acquisition of the Paulínia site in Brazil. We have turned Suominen around.
Take a look at what Nina Kopola, President & CEO, who joined Suominen one month after the acquisition, has to say about these five years.
