Kalanti, Finland-based manufacturer Vahterus has launched a virtual showroom for its heat exchanger products to conclude the company’s 30th anniversary celebration.
Vahterus, which specializes in making custom plate-and-shell heat exchangers for ammonia and CO2 applications, will use the digital platform to expand and improve customer interaction.
“We believe this is a meaningful way to meet our customers today and in the next decades,” said Mauri Kontu, founder and CEO of Vahterus. “This is a good example of how we strive for continuous renewal in everything we do.”
The showroom will give customers constant online access to its product line.
This makes it possible “for our global colleagues and customers to meet and chat regardless of location,” according to Hanna Kontu, Marketing Director at Vahterus.
“Building on mixed reality, the space allows for fully transparent access to our products – from a detailed product introduction to an entire exhibition booth – to be transferred into our customers’ meeting rooms anywhere in the world.”
Vahterus will post further details about the showroom on its company website and LinkedIn page.
While the company’s official anniversary was on September 5, it marked the occasion with a live event hosted on the company’s LinkedIn page on September 4.
The company has shifted its celebrations to a virtual format in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and has hosted and participated in digital events throughout this week to mark its anniversary, according to the company website.
Vahterus exhibited at shecco’s Virtual Trade Show for natural refrigerants, a 24-hour global event, which began on September 1. The company materials will be available here until September 30. (shecco is the publisher of this website.)
“This was our first virtual fair and very much enjoyed taking part,” said Hanna Kontu.
As well as this, the company hosted a livestream by Valtteri Haavisto, Customer Service Director at Vahterus, as part of the company’s new livestream series “Live from Vahterus R&D”, which began this summer, and can be found on the company’s LinkedIn page.
“Thirty years in heat transfer – starting with nothing but big dreams, working with my brilliant team and with you, our valued customers, solving challenges together and developing thousands and thousands of solutions in heat transfer,” said Mauri Kontu. “For me, this is an incredible feeling!”.
