Today, July 1 2020, is 30 years since KPA Unicon Oy started operating in the energy market.
“We had four hard-working and business-hungry young men ready to conquer the world through energy production and persistent work. On the morning of July 1 1990, in the office at the corner of Keskuskatu and Kauppakatu in Pieksämäki, Finland began the cooperation between Pekka Kovanen (CEO), Juha Sormunen (Deputy CEO), Raimo Rossinen (Project manager) and Mikko Nyyssönen (Designer). Everyone brought their strong competence and contributions. It has been really rewarding to grow the company together with globally skilled and active staff and the work continues even more efficiently.
Today we have about 220 people making clean energy solutions, in Finland and at in eight locations around the world – the conquest of the world has indeed been successful!”
Pekka Kovanen, Founder and Chairman of the Board of KPA Unicon.
“It has been an honor to continue the family business in the footsteps of my father and company founder Pekka Kovanen. In three decades, we have grown into a major player in the energy sector, domestically and internationally. I see that we will have a big role in the future in finding solutions to reduce the use of fossil fuels.
Thanks to all KPA Unicon staff for the past years, this is a good basis for further progress.”
