Tommi, who works in Valmet's Ulvila unit got the idea of utilizing VR headsets.

Valmet believes in reverse mentoring -technique - new employees bring and are allowed to bring fresh ideas. Case Brazil:

A product was manufactured in Ulvila for a Brazilian customer. Because of the covid-19 the customer couldn't come to Finland to get to know the product. Cutter designer had an idea, that they could use VR headsets and present the product virtually. They decided to try this and it worked out great. The customer was very happy!
