Pekka Pylkkänen becomes owner of ARROW Engineering Oy

Pekka Pylkkänen has bought the whole 50% of the ownership interest in ARROW Engineering Oy formerly held by the company’s other owner Harri Jernberg. The trade has taken place on 27.7.2016 and the new arrangement is valid. Following the arrangement Pylkkänen has become the sole owner of the company.

Pylkkänen will become Chief Executive Officer of the company, he will also continue working as Chairman of the Board. Harri Jernberg will stay away from the company’s day to day activities. His tasks in terms of the business of the Machine Track-system will be taken over by Juho Vuohelainen. Previously, Vuohelainen has worked with the Machine Track project management and development tasks. The new ownership arrangement does not affect client communications.

“Our long cooperation with Harri has now come to an end. Our Organization and all our services will continue to be, in all their parts, at our client’s disposal. ARROW has a long and very extensive experience in serving the industry. We have worked with intensive focus, having faith in our own endeavor. This plan has gone a long way.

The development of productivity and management systems as well as IoT technology investing are very active. New technologies are opening up whole new ways of thinking, also about key systems. The industry is now ready to make concrete investments and also to budget into this unity. I see this fact as having significant potential for the development of our own systems and service concept.

In regards of the operating environment and the technology change we will be an active player, not a follower. This also requires investments, which we will be doing more of.”
