The Ambassador of Finland officially opened Fiskars’ new UK showroom and offices in Birmingham on Thursday March 12.
Local business dignitaries, trade associations, industry leaders from the home and garden arena, and Fiskars employees witnessed Ambassador Pekka Huhtaniemi cut the ribbon to mark the opening of the new premises on the 17th floor of the McLaren Building in central Birmingham’s business district. The housewares and garden tools supplier’s move has been the culmination of over a year’s planning.
John Grayson, regional director of Fiskars South West Europe, welcomed the guests, who were then addressed by Thomas Enckell, president of Fiskars Europe. He said: “Fiskars will be strengthening its marketing position and expanding and the UK is one of the key markets in Europe. This new facility shows our aspirations. It’s a great view, lots of open space and gives us room to grow.”
