Spinnova appoints Anu Kyllönen Textile Engineering Specialist

Anu KyllönenMs Anu Kyllönen has been appointed Specialist, Textile Engineering in the sustainable fibre company Spinnova as of 21 May, 2018. Kyllönen reinforces Spinnova’s team with the technical textile industry knowledge that is needed in the further processing phases of fibre R&D.

Kyllönen has solid experience of materials, textile processes, quality assurance and production management. She has worked in the textile industry since 2001, e.g. as an entrepreneur.

This addition to the team is part of growing and expanding Spinnova’s operations this year. Spinnova’s R&D has recently been completed with carding and dry spinning technology, which enables a more comprehensive testing process of fibre qualities than before in Spinnova’s pilot factory.

– The missing link in this phase of our growth story was a textile engineering expert that also knows the after treatment processes. With Anu, the Spinnova fibre development together with our customers takes another leap forward, says Spinnova’s CEO Janne Poranen.
