These are unsettling times. Our customers, suppliers and employees – their families and friends – are being confronted with challenges and uncertainties which would have seemed unimaginable a few months ago. Here at Sammet, we have been working hard to ensure that we continue to deliver outstanding products and services to our customers, while looking after the welfare of our partners and employees.

Managing Director and Board member Mr Heikki Ollikainen.

In this issue of the Sammet Review, you will read exactly how we are continuing to deliver on our commitments to our customers and protecting our employees. Even during these precarious times, manufacturing capacity at our factory in Shanghai, China, has reached an all time high. In under two years it has become a proven success story of the damper industry. In the beginning of May, 2020, we completed production of our 1000th damper. You can read more about how our employees are managing the challenges here.

We are proud to provide our key markets with the most compelling and complete customer packages in the damper business. Sammet’s Clean Flow technology and full range of cutting-edge damper solutions for offshore scrubber and catalyst systems continues to set the standard for the marine industry. Our commitment to environmental management has inspired us to create Clean Flow technology for the power and process industries, enabling our customers to reach the highest possible energy efficiency and reliability. You can read how Valmet, one of our valued customers works with Sammet to ensure their environmental promises are kept, here.

The coronavirus sweeping the world has only strengthened Sammet’s resilience, reliability and focus on quality. We are even more determined to continue delivering our first-class quality products to our marine customers and industry partners with land-based projects such as power plants, smelters and pulp mills. These essential services need our support to continue functioning and ensure daily life continues for us all. Even in this time of crisis, we are ready to serve our customers. We answer some important customer questions here.

To remain focused and resilient, it is important to keep grounded in the things which drive us forward. At Sammet, we are grounding ourselves in our commitment to provide quality products, services and care to everyone we deal with. As we all continue to work our way through 2020, from our family to yours, stay well and stay safe.
