CEO Message 7 August 2020

Dear Partner,

At Vahterus, summer holidays are coming to an end and our factory in Kalanti will be operating at full speed next week. We continue to run more or less as normal, and thankfully everyone is healthy.

But we’re all concerned about the growing number of Covid-19 cases, and how it will be possible to conduct business in the near future. Travel is still restricted and events and fairs are cancelled. So we’re working hard to develop other ways of keeping in touch with you.

In the refrigeration sector, Chillventa has been cancelled, but shecco is launching the World´s first Virtual Natural Refrigerants Trade Show on 1–2 September 2020. Vahterus will be there to exhibit and spend time with you within your local and global markets in all time zones, from Australia to the USA. We look forward to seeing you at our first virtual fair!

5 September, is our 30th anniversary. Sadly, it looks as if we’ll have to postpone our celebrations of this landmark event with you. But let’s celebrate digitally! We’ll be sharing more details soon.

Let’s keep the world running, not as normal, but with new approaches, and treat Covid-19 like any other change in business. This is the new normal and it’s spurring us on to keep renewing our ideas with you.

Together we succeed!

Mauri Kontu

Founder and CEO
