DA-Group Enhances Operations to Serve its Defence and Aerospace Customers

Finnish technology corporation DA-Group combines its defence and space business units into one, DA Defence & Aerospace. This operational change is one step forward to strengthen the company’s growth strategy.

The new unit will serve DA-Group’s defence and space customers as well as collaboration network more efficiently as all special application design, manufacturing and testing services are under the same roof.

Mr. Kristian Tornivaara is appointed as the Chief Business Officer, Defence & Aerospace. Mr. Tornivaara reports to Sami Kotiniemi, CEO. Mr. Tornivaara is a co-founder of one of the defence subsidiaries of DA-Group and has extensive experience in defence business management. Mr. Juuso Kaitalo is appointed as the Chief Product Officer to lead a new DA Products & Technologies unit and reports to the CEO. This unit takes responsibility of research, development, technology and product management activities on a corporate level. Mr. Kaitalo will remain in close co-operation with the DA Defence & Aerospace unit. Mr. Nestori Fabritius is appointed as the Business Development Manager, Defence & Aerospace.

Kristian Tornivaara is confident about positive effects the new business unit arrangement will bring. “Thanks to the combined synergies of the dynamic and innovative teams, we are able to enhance the capabilities and capacity of our already first class technology offering. Our objective is to excel in serving our customers and end-users. DA-Group is continuously developing more demanding products and comprehensive systems, especially in the fields of electronic and underwater warfare, and space situational awareness. We will bring our vast experience from development programs and delivery projects over the decades to the success of all the parties. I am convinced that our customers value the advance we provide giving them the superiority in their operation”, states Tornivaara.

All project contact information remain unchanged, unless otherwise directly informed.
