The foundation stone of Teknosavo’s new HQ was laid in Savonlinna
The provider of optimization solutions for the wood processing industry, Teknosavo, is building a new business premise in Savonlinna. At the same time the growing organization’s three separate offices will move under the one roof. The new office space of over 1,000 square meters in Noheva Technology Center will include Teknosavo’s production, testing and office facilities.
Teknosavo’s EUR 1.5 million construction investment is based on accelerating the company’s international growth. The operations of Teknosavo have expanded significantly in the last years. The location of the new facilities in the Technology Park provides an excellent product development and testing conditions for the company and a strong network of partners. A Fiber Laboratory and the research environment of the South-Eastern Finland University of Applied Sciences XAMK in the Noheva Technology Park played an important role in choosing the location. In the future, cooperation between the actors is expected to become even closer, both in terms of research and knowledge exchange.
The new premises are expected to be completed in July. However, the actual relocation is scheduled to the end of August, when the trial run of the building is expected to be completed. The foundation stone of the new building was laid in Savonlinna on Wednesday 8. At the bricklaying, the day’s newspaper, drawings of the building, Finnish white wine and an USB stick containing information on the history of Teknosavo were buried in a metal capsule into the foundations of the building.
