Exel Composites & Cleantech Finland enter into partnership
Exel Composites, a leading composite technology company that designs, manufactures, and markets composite products and solutions for demanding applications, has joined hands with Cleantech Finland, a network of top cleantech companies and experts that brings the world's best cleantech solutions and expertise to companies and public-sector organizations that have environmental or energy-efficiency problems that need solving.
Exel Composites' membership supports the company's target to develop lighter, more durable and energy efficient and thus more environmentally friendly products and solutions. 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 waste water treatment, according to a press release.
Loukola, Exel Composites' SVP of sales and marketing said, “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.”
Mikko Lassila, Exel Composites' sales development manager said, “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. 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.”
Cleantech Finland's client relations manager Petri Lintumäki said, “We are pleased to welcome Exel Composite to Cleantech Finland -network. 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.” (GK)
