A strong international vision

Finelcomp’s internationalization project is looking promising according to Rantasalo.

– We’re aiming for a leap in internationalization, one that will take our organization to the next level. Finelcomp is currently in a position where the domestic market alone is not enough for growth. We must rev up and make our moves in select key markets.

– We have all the ingredients for success. Our product portfolio and market position are excellent, and we have been developing our sales organization systematically.

Rantasalo calls for a braver commercial approach from Finnish companies hoping to internationalize.

– When you’re heading out into the world, more than anything you need commercial bravery and extending a commercial way of thinking to all organizational levels and all phases of product development.
