Our team comprises some of Finland’s leading experts in various sectors. Finland has one of the most highly educated populations in the world, so competence is in our blood. At Hile Water, we work with a sense of humour, but we never compromise or take shortcuts. The Hile team includes experts of various ages to keep us abreast of the latest developments.
Our team members have strong entrepreneurial competence, as well as experience in international and domestic business operations, logistics, sales, marketing communications, brand-building, purchasing, automation, design, economics and finance, and the water business.
International contacts form a basis for global operations in various markets. Solid automation expertise helps with designing and maintaining the bottling plant, while logistical competence works in creating an efficient automated delivery chain from supplier to customer. Strong knowledge of commercialisation, design and brand-building, in turn, will ensure our international success.
