In January 2020, Glaston announced its new group structure with business areas Glaston Heat Treatment Technologies, Glaston Insulating Glass Technologies, and Glaston Automotive and Emerging Technologies.

As of January 1, 2021, the emerging technologies operations will be reorganized and become part of the regional sales structure. At that time, Glaston’s business areas will be Glaston Heat Treatment Technologies, Glaston Insulating Glass Technologies, and Glaston Automotive and Display Technologies.

Sasu Koivumäki, chief sales officer who is currently acting president and CEO, will take the responsibility of the emerging technologies business, which continues to be an integral part of Glaston’s growth strategy, according to the company. Robert Prange, currently senior vice president of automotive and emerging technologies, will lead the Glaston Automotive and Display Technologies business area. Dietmar Walz will continue as senior vice president of insulating glass technologies and Miika Äppelqvist as senior vice president of heat treatment technologies.

Emerging technologies will be reported in any one of the three business segments depending on their technology focus. Glaston will publish comparable financial figures before the publication of the January-March 2021 interim report.
