Meet the team: Samppa Rytkönen

This time we want to introduce one of our wonderful team members from Kausala branch: our Quality Manager Samppa Rytkönen, who makes sure that we indeed deliver what we promise. Samppa is not only a trustworthy and liked colleague but also Climecon’s invincible karaoke king who magically gets everyone in the audience rushing to the dance floor.

Samppa started his journey at Climecon a few years ago as a fixed-term Quality Engineer. Luckily, we managed to make him stay in the Climecon family and nowadays, besides working as a Design Engineer he takes care of the standards and quality systems of our products.

Most of his workdays Samppa spends tailoring Climecon’s products for customers’ special needs. Samppa states versatile assignments as the best thing about his job: “There are rarely two similar special requests.” He mentions that it has also been great to have a chance to work with pretty much the whole Climecon crew. “We have a very professional and talented group of people working both at the production sites and at the head-office”, Samppa praises his co-workers. “The team is both passionate and flexible.”

“The Climecon-team is both passionate and flexible.”

As a Quality Manager Samppa understands the importance of trust and follows strictly Climecon’s guideline: “When we promise, we deliver.” He underlines that empty promises bring nothing but trouble regardless of the situation. “If I’m not sure whether something can be done or not, I do not promise to do it”, he sums up. 

Samppa recently returned to work from summer holiday, during which he found a new favorite hobby: disc golf. When the weather gets cold again he plans to take his hobbies back inside and head to the gym. Fortunately, getting back to the desk from the sunny disc golf courses did not feel too bad either: “It is nice to get to work when you have enough tasks awaiting”, Samppa states.


The carbon dioxide emissions of the OLO series have been reduced by up to 23%

Sustainable and environmentally friendly business practices guide everything we do. That’s why our product development strives to reduce the carbon footprint of our products whenever possible. Such measures include, for example, changing the product and packaging materials to more environmentally friendly ones, optimizing the use of materials, and optimizing the use of water and energy in manufacturing. Our OLO diffusers are a perfect example of environmentally friendly product development.

Climecon’s CEO is taking part in a round-the-world sailing trip

Climecon is known for its “getting things done”-attitude, but sometimes it’s time to take a break. Climecon CEO Tommi Uksila will participate in the Ocean Globe Race 2023 sailing competition around the world. During Tommi’s sailing, Mikko Erikson, head of the sales team and head of the air purification business, will act as the CEO’s deputy. Mikko has been in the Climecon team for a long time and is certainly a familiar face to many. Tommi’s absence does not cause changes in Climecon’s services or operations.
