We wouldn’t be the largest hot tub manufacturer in Europe if it wasn’t for our capable and active employees. In fact, our operations are based on employee well-being, a pleasant and relaxed work environment and long working relationships. We invest heavily in the training and well-being of our employees. As a result we have very low turnover, and the age range of our employees is wide, with the youngest employees having been born in the 1990s. It is great to see people of different ages working well together and bringing new ideas and perspectives to the table.
Taina’s many duties include export sales and other related tasks, as well as planning and implementing export marketing measures. Taina does not see many ordinary days. Her day always starts with reading the e-mail, after which she takes care of issues in their order of urgency. After this, she sees what the day will bring. Usually it involves processing orders and monitoring them in production, and planning and organising transport. She is also in contact with the customers concerning the above issues.
Mika Rantanen, established Kirami in Sastamala when he was living in Sweden. Mika and his family dreamed about moving to Finland and starting a business there.

Miro’s duties mainly include managing exports, making orders for retailers, image processing and using his IT expertise. Miro’s main export countries are Sweden, Austria and the British Isles.

Eero Rantanen, was already involved in Kirami’s activities when the company was just starting up. He has been a partner in Kirami since 2003, and he was already working hard for the company in its early days in addition to his then day job. In the evenings and weekends, when Eero was not working as a software developer and project manager, he was making Kirami’s first website, among other things. Soon after he started working full time for the company.
