Leif Frilund brings us vision and networks of European customers. Tom Anderzén’s long-term experience on the development of production and IT systems in the manufacturing industry is highly valuable for us. Heikki Halme’s personal experience as a successful growth entrepreneur in the software sector will further strengthen the Board of Directors. Jorma Tirkkonen is very familiar with the company and will continue in his previous role as the Chairman of the Board,” says Olli Pasanen, Quva’s CEO. 

    Leif Frilund is an experienced executive in international business who has worked as the President and CEO of packaging materials company Walki Group since 2007. Frilund previously worked as the CEO of BTG Group, a process instrumentation company based in Switzerland, as an executive at Ahlström, and as the CEO of Albany Fennofelt Oy. He has extensive experience of board work at privately owned European companies.

    Tom Anderzén has broad experience of management duties at Huhtamäki Oyj. Anderzén’s most recent area of responsibility comprised the development of business operations and strategy.

  • Quva's Data-Driven Quality Assurance Webinar on December 4th, 2018

    12.10.2018 | News

    Quva will organize a very topical webinar on Data-Driven Quality Assurance on 4th of December 2018 at 14:00 (CET). Main presenter will be D.Sc. Tapio Manninen, who is the CTO of Quva. Short description of the webinar below:

    Manufacturing quality is dependent on the production process and process input such as raw material properties. Factories accumulate vast amounts of data that enable quality assurance to be taken to the next level using modern tools such as machine learning. The path from traditional quality inspection and real-time monitoring to data-driven statistical process control and, further, to predictive quality control will be presented in the webinar. Benefits as well as challenges in adapting new "AI" techniques for improving quality are discussed.
