The responsibilities of the new Production Director include e.g. the management and development of Escarmat’s production, logistics and procurement units.
Tomi Korkeavaara has started as Escarmat’s new Production Director on 9.11.2020. Escarmat was a familiar name to Korkeavaara, who had worked in the Vaasa region for a long time.
– I have worked in the region for over a decade in the machinery and equipment industries, as well as in various procurement and management positions, so I knew Escarmat as a company, although the control cabinet manufacturing sector is totally new for me. However, I saw the change of industry as a refreshing opportunity to learn something completely new, Korkeavaara says.
Escarmat’s ambitious growth and development objectives also made the man seize the opportunity.
“It has been a pleasure to note that Escarmat has a very dynamic production. Here, the wishes of the customers are really listened to and reacted to.”Tomi Korkeavaara, Escarmat’s Production Director
In addition, Korkeavaara has been satisfied with his new organization, which he has now got to know for a few weeks.
– It has been a pleasure to note that Escarmat has a very dynamic production. Here, the wishes of the customers are really listened to and reacted to, Korkeavaara says with satisfaction.
In addition, he has noted that Escarmat has a very close and warm-hearted work community, which he also considers a great resource.
In his work as a manager, he says that he strives to utilize the Finnish national ice hockey team coach Jukka Jalonen’s successful management methods, where all players play a key role in achieving success.
– I believe that when employees internalize the importance of their own role in relation to the whole, then professional pride and with it the level of working will rise to a whole new level, and the so-called “Superstars” are not needed, Korkeavaara sums up his thoughts.
Korkeavaara is a mechanical engineer. In addition, he has a specialist degree in business management. Prior to Escarmat, Korkeavaara has worked e.g. as Procurement Category Manager at Wärtsilä Finland Oy and Chief Operative Officer at JTK Power Oy.
