Valkeakoski Business Development opens a website in English

We are pleased to announce that this new website is officially open for business. It is part of our continued effort to reach a larger target audience. Valkeakoski is a business-friendly destination and we feel that it should be on the radar of managers and entrepreneurs who come from abroad with the intention of setting up a base in Finland. We hope that the new website will lower the threshold of contacting Valkeakoski Business Development.
