Pia Kaartinen has started as Inka’s plant manager in January. She is a professional in the textile and clothing industry and has been working mainly with various technical textiles and workwear since 1995. Pia’s main areas of responsibility at Inka will be production and its development, product development and material procurement.
Pia says that her interest in textiles and their manufacture began at a very early stage when her grandmother taught her how to crochet. “Thanks to Grandma, I learned to crochet before I could write and I am still on that path”, she notes. However, her writing skills have also developed over the years when she was studying textile technology. Pia has a master’s degree in textile engineering.
As a person with a textile background, Pia thinks it is great to join the Inka team, which has a very long history of making ribbons and webbings in Finland. “I look forward to being able to take advantage of my textile education and work experience in my new role”, she says.
We warmly welcome Pia to the Inka team!
