UTG Mixing Group
The corona crisis this spring was challenging in many ways for the UTG Mixing Group. Social distancing guidelines, hygiene requirements, travel restrictions and the resulting delivery delays by suppliers have not made day-to-day work easy.
“Nevertheless, it has been great to see how all our personnel have been able to handle the unexpected challenges in such an exemplary manner while also looking out for each other. Learning new ways of doing things, such as working remotely and meeting our customers while the voices of family members can be heard in the background, has even brought us closer together. Out of necessity, we have had to learn to utilize a wide range of digital services, appreciate our everyday routines and discover new opportunities. At the same time, we have achieved many of our targets, for which our entire personnel deserve a warm thank you,” says Jouko Peräaho, CEO, Plc Uutechnic Group Oyj.
Digitalization project nearing completion – new visuals and website published in June
The UTG Mixing Group has been moving in a positive direction in many areas over the past year. For example, the digitalization of processes in order to streamline operations is nearing completion. In addition to enabling us to improve our business, collaboration, performance and competitiveness, an integrated and state-of-the-art operating environment will enable us to provide added value to our customers in a variety of ways, such as through faster service.
This spring, we have clarified our visuals and message, which can be seen in our new Group website. The aim of creating a new website was to bring together the entire offerings of the UTG Mixing Group in order to better serve our various stakeholders. For example, the website highlights specific applications within different industries and presents concrete customer experiences.
“Our new website presents our clarified customer promise and what it means in practice: Partnerships built to last – and perform. We offer competitive mixing technology solutions that minimize lifecycle costs according to individual customer needs. We always serve our customers in the best possible way by bringing our global capabilities close to the customer locally. We deliver on our promises and always on time. This requires constant development from us, but we are motivated to do so because we want to be the best in our industry. The idea is that our reputation is only as good as our latest work,” Peräaho summarizes.
