Kimmo Liinamaa was appointed as Development Manager for Telko Green Products in August. Here are some of Kimmo´  s thoughts about his new important role.


Responsibility and sustainable development are key factors in Telko´ s strategy. Development Manager, Green Products is a new position that supports the implementation of the strategy – and which I am glad to manage.


In practice ”Green Products” means biobased, biodegradable and recycled plastic raw materials. These products develop fast and new opportunities to use these products in customers´ products and processes appear constantly. In this new role I aim to help Telko´ s customers to find and use new biobased solutions.


Telko has already a good selection of green products. In the future our selection will grow and I am sure that together with our customers we can develop new solutions where biobased, biodegradable and recycled products and raw materials can create new business.
