Premix kicks off the anniversary year full of energy and with an updated organization

News from Premix | January 10, 2020

In 2020, Premix is celebrating the company’s 40th anniversary. The anniversary year will be spent working hard and investing heavily.

A family-owned company was established in 1980 and has carried out pioneer work in polymer modification ever since. The core of our business has from the beginning laid in controlling static electricity with electrically conductive plastics. Yet today, we have gained a firm foothold in the area of RF materials too.

- Although we have established business areas that we cherish we never stop innovating new. “Grab the opportunity” is something we believe in – meaning you should always keep your eyes open for new possibilities. It takes courage to widen your horizon beyond what you already know and are good at, but we’ve learned that it’s worthwhile, says Premix’s Managing Director Hanna Ristola, who now runs the company that her father, Antti Kiikka founded.

Until now, we have more or less separated our electrically conductive and dielectric plastics business units from one another. However, we have noticed that more and more often our customers have needs for all the solutions we are offering. Thus, it was only natural to make some organizational changes and combine the business units under the same Sales Team.

- It’s about widening the horizon internally, too. We have a huge amount of professionalism and know-how in the house, and now we are able to share it effectively. In the end, all of this naturally benefits our customers, states Hanna.

Staying true to our DNA, we have naturally put much resources to R&D and New Business Development too. There were also small changes in the Premix Management Team that now consists of Managing Director Hanna Ristola, New Business Development Director Tuomas Kiikka, Chief Financial Officer Mirja Nissen, HR Director Mari Lippojoki, Sales & Marketing Director Kari Nieminen, Supply Chain Director Mika Silventoinen and Product Development Director Jari-Matti Mehto. You can read more about them in the Management page.

With roots firmly in Rajamäki Finland, Premix delivers its material solutions all over the world. In addition to sales offices in Schafflund, Germany, and Shanghai, China, we have a wide and excellent network of distributors who help us conquer their local markets.

- Our 40 years of success is based on long-term business relationships with our valued customers. We are very grateful for the trust and hope to continue the co-operation for at least another 40 years! says Hanna.
