Scanfil arranges the company’s first Capital Markets Day on Tuesday, 14 September 2021 from 10:00 a.m. until approximately 1:30 p.m. EEST. Scanfil is the first company in Finland to offer a virtual factory tour for investors.
The tour will take participants to the electronics and system integration factory in Suzhou, China. The factory is under expansion project planning which aims to double its production and warehouse space. The project started in August 2021.
“This is an excellent opportunity for investors to discover one of Scanfil’s SMART technology programme flagship factories. When the corona crisis started, we kicked off a virtual factory tour for our customers and now we offer the same to investors”, says Scanfil’s CEO Petteri Jokitalo. “By doing this, we can protect people’s health, save time and reduce environmental effects caused by travelling. We believe this way of working is here to stay”
The event will be arranged as a hybrid event both online and onsite. The live event venue will be Sanomatalo, Helsinki, Finland.

It may be difficult to see any bright spots in the current and recent economic situation. We have all experienced the devastation of the pandemic, supply chain issues, and most recently, inflation. However, as a senior technologist for an international materials supplier (Indium Corporation) and a professor of engineering at an Ivy League research university (Dartmouth College), I offer these four silver linings for those of us in the electronics industry.

Events of the past two years have clearly demonstrated the value of strong trading relationships. When materials become constrained, as in the recent microchip shortage or any of the pandemic-driven supply chain snafus, the companies that have those materials have a choice to make. Which customers will be put at the front of the line, and which will be placed at the rear? Too often, company executives assume that since they are a large buyer, they automatically will be prioritized when supplies are constrained. Research has shown that this is not always the case, and that assumption can leave a company in a weakened position.
