Outotec research center is recognised at Excellence Finland Quality Awards

Outotec’s research centre in Pori, Outotec Research Oy, took part in the Finnish Excellence Quality Awards and received the prestigious Recognised for Excellence award. The centre achieved a score of over 500 points, which entitles the winner to use the five-star Recognised for Excellence, R4E emblem. For a long time, Outotec Research has worked systematically to improve its operations. When the centre received Quality System certification in 1994 it was the first company in the field of research and development to do so in Finland. An occupational health and safety system was introduced in 2005. An upgrade in 2007 replaced the environmental management program used since 1998.
