Exel Composites has joined Cleantech Finland, an organisation promoting clean technology, supporting the company’s target to develop lighter, more durable and energy efficient and thus more environmentally friendly products and solutions.
Exel Composites explains, Cleantech Finland is a network of top cleantech companies and experts that brings the world’s best cleantech solutions and expertise to companies and public-sector organisations that have environmental or energy-efficiency problems that need solving. It says that, composite solutions that replace traditional materials decrease harmful environmental effects both directly and through value chain. The light weight and durability of composite products generate energy savings and diminished emissions e.g. in the transportation industry. Components delivered to water plants improve processes related to wastewater treatment.
“Sustainability and life-cycle thinking play a major role in the development of more environmentally friendly production methods. They also help our customers obtain more ecological solutions with our products. Cleantech Finland’s targets are in line with our strategy,” says Mr. Kari Loukola, Exel Composites’ SVP of Sales and Marketing.
“We develop energy efficient solutions in close co-operation with for example building and transportation industries. Composite window and door profiles’ excellent thermal insulation properties generate energy savings,” says Mr. Mikko Lassila, Exel Composites’ Sales Development Manager.
“Composites are gaining ground in the automotive industry via cost savings as vehicles use less fuel thanks to lower weight. Corrosion resistance means less maintenance and less damage due to harsh weather conditions, which translates into longer life-cycle.”
“We are pleased to welcome Exel Composite to Cleantech Finland. Exel Composites represents excellent Finnish cleantech know-how. Also, it is involved in several cleantech value networks. Exel’s membership strengthens the network’s unique expertise,” says Cleantech Finland’s Client Relations Manager, Petri Lintumäki.
