Our long-term logistics manager Ari-Pekka Strander will retire on 1.10.2021. Ari-Pekka started at Luvian Saha Oy in 2007. During these years, he has seen different kinds of eras in the field of logistics. Especially the past 2 years have been particularly challenging.
Ari-Pekka started his career in 1982 in Helsinki at John Nurminen company. With his friend Juhani Wallenius they founded Wallstrand Oy, acting as an ice-hockey player agency at the end of 1980’s. Later on, the company expanded their operations to logistics, organizing transportations worldwide for different companies.
Ari-Pekka feels that his years in Luvia have been rewarding, especially due to good work community and great colleagues. Over the years, Ari-Pekka has created good connections with various companies in the logistics industry. Jonna Paavilainen, who will take over Ari-Pekka’s tasks, will have a good basis for continuing as company’s logistics supervisor.
We would like to thank Ari-Pekka for his commitment and great work and wish him all the best for the future.
