Teknikum production operative with precautions during COVID-19 pandemic

Finland, Sastamala, 8.4.2020

Dear Customer,

on behalf of Teknikum Group, we wish to ensure you that our company takes the current situation with COVID-19 pandemic most seriously. In order to maintain operative and keep the highest possible level of delivery reliability, we have taken several preparations during the past weeks.

Most of our officers are working remotely, business travelling is on hold and our production personnel have been given special hygiene instructions. External supplier traffic is limited and monitored. Our raw material supplier network has been also audited. The risk level for delays is currently low, as most of our rubber compounds come from Finland from our group’s own rubber mixing plant.

The hygiene precautions and travel restrictions are at place throughout Teknikum Group’s other operative units and production facilities.


Currently there are no confirmed cases of the virus in Teknikum Group staff.

In general, the situation in Finland, where Teknikum Group’s main production facilities are located, is considerably good. The government has taken efficient actions to limit the spreading of virus, such as closing schools, limiting public gatherings to maximum 10 people and closing the Helsinki metropolitan area from leisure traffic.


Teknikum Group’s management will follow closely the instructions and regulations by local health officials.

If you have any questions about the developments, please contact our customer service, business unit directors or Director, HSQE, Esko Mäntyharju

Finally, the whole Teknikum Group wishes its customers and partners fast recovery during these uncertain times and looks forward to serving you to the best of our ability.


Sincerely Yours,

Jani Hämäläinen
CEO, Teknikum Group
