Technology company Pinja has opened a new regional unit located on the Salo IoT Campus.

– Pinja has already served Finnish companies in all of the largest economic hubs at an hour-long drive at most. Now it was finally time to expand to Southwest Finland, too. The region offers us interesting opportunities including, for example, businesses engaged in digitalisation of the healthcare sector, strong traditional industry, as well as IoT skills. This together with the short distance to Turku makes the region very attractive to us and the enthusiasm can be sensed. The Salo IoT Campus offers us modern, bright and spacious premises, says Jarkko Kosonen from Pinja.

At the first stage, the new location will be occupied by one expert. In the coming months, activities will be reinforced by recruiting software developers and other IT experts in particular, later perhaps industrial experts as well.

– We wish Pinja very warmly welcome in Salo. While the unemployment rate is still high in the region after the departure of Nokia and its contractors – over 10% –labour shortage is already emerging in some sectors. The Salo IoT Campus is a good location for establishment and networking. There are already more than 50 businesses operating in the area and we help companies to both recruit and find partners, says managing director Jyrki Sjöholm from Yrityssalo Oy.
