– We live in exciting times! It is interesting to step into a new industry and operating culture. HögforsGST’s path is currently at an exciting point, and I’m privileged to be involved, says Taipalus.

The demand for energy-efficient heating solutions is growing enormously, and growth is also HögforsGST’s goal.

– In my opinion, HögforsGST is a well-functioning company, and megatrends boost the demand for HögforsGST’s products and services. In my role as CFO, I strive to contribute to the growth of HögforsGST and bring experience in international development to the company. I expect the next few years to be very eventful.

Managing Director Antti Hartman is pleased to welcome Pasi Taipalus to HögforsGST’s team. Hartman expects Taipalus to bring experience, especially in operating in international markets.

– Pasi has substantial experience in the financial management of companies that are larger than us, and he can bring us know-how that we currently do not have. Experienced professionals like Pasi help us navigate the worst pitfalls of international growth and help us reach our ambitious business goals for the coming years.

As CFO, Taipalus will contribute to managing HögforsGST’s internal IT system projects and has a vital role in implementing HögforsGST’s growth strategy through acquisitions.
