Sami Tähtinen has been appointed the Managing Director (MD), effective 1 September 2019, as the previous MD Mikko Jokinen starts to prepare for his retirement. Sami has a degree in Engineering and has accumulated extensive experience in the stainless steel industry while working for companies such as Stala Tube OY and Montanstahl SA, as well as successfully running his own company ScaTrade OY.
With Sami at the helm, Kominox OY will have a driven businessman with a broad network of Finnish industry contacts taking the company forward. He has all the prerequisites to continue building the company on to become an important player in the Finnish stainless steel market, naturally supported by the Kominox Group.
I wish Sami the best of luck! I also want to thank Mikko Jokinen for his great contributions both as the MD and a former sales agent. Thanks to Mikko, Kominox OY has increased sales steadily with good profitability ever since it was founded in 2017.
– Anders Nilson, Group CEO Kominox
