"We’ve not only been able to continue manufacturing despite the COVID-19 pandemic but actually increased our production capabilities to new levels" Timo Koljonen, Director of Operations at Danfoss Editron
Commenting on the new manufacturing record, the Director of Operations at Danfoss Editron’s Lappeenranta factory Timo Koljonen said:
“It’s testament to our exceptional team that we’ve not only been able to continue manufacturing despite the COVID-19 pandemic but actually increased our production capabilities to new levels. By quickly implementing strict social distancing and safety measures, we were able to keep our Lappeenranta plant operating daily and have not needed to close it at any time. This new record-breaking month further demonstrates that, as a company, we are growing faster than ever before.”
Earlier this year, Danfoss Editron unveiled a new in-house testing laboratory at its Lappeenranta manufacturing site. The facility is being used to conduct electromagnetic compatibility and environmental tests, guaranteeing the quality of the company’s EDITRON systems to its customers.
