Kaj Pischow rewarded for innovativeness
Savo-Solar’s technology director Kaj Pischow has been appointed as The Innovator of the Year. Development company Miksei, who is granting the reward, emphasises the long professional career of Kaj Pischow in the development of coating technology and the related business, which has created tens of jobs and enhanced the competence in coating in the St. Michel area. Thanks to him, the region has also gained international visibility.
Pischow’s career in the business utilising coating technology started in 1990’s when he found new use for a worn coating line in the development of coatings for mobile phones. Large volumes of mobile phones were manufactured by Nokia at that time, and the company Savcor was found to act as their industrial partner. When Nokia then later divested the phone manufacturing, a new purpose was again found for the coating line in the manufacture of thermal solar collectors at Savo-Solar Plc.
