Leinolat Group will be an important part of the Wärtsilä ecosystem built around Smart Technology Hub
Oy Leinoalt Ab has acquired parts of the engine block machining and related operations in Delivery Centre Vaasa from Wärtsilä Finland Oy as a business transfer. As a result of the transfer, 21 of the Wärtsilä’s current employees will be transferred to Kilkanen Oy, a Leinolat Group company on April 30th 2020.
