LEMMINKÄINEN CORPORATION PRESS RELEASE 13 NOVEMBER 2013 AT 9.30 A.M.
LEMMINKÄINEN CHALLENGES THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY TO SUPPORT THE NEW CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL
Lemminkäinen has decided to donate EUR 50,000 to the planned New Children's Hospital. At the same time, Lemminkäinen challenges the entire construction industry to join the effort.
"All of the companies in the industry will certainly be willing to take part in building the new children's hospital once the project starts moving. To our minds, it is therefore natural that we take part together already in the fundraising effort," says Timo Kohtamäki, President & CEO of Lemminkäinen, and continues: "During its century-long history, Lemminkäinen has taken part in creating conditions that make living, working and travelling functional, safe and healthy. We want to contribute to this project with social significance and take part in ensuring the well-being of our future generations."
"We are glad that Lemminkäinen is contributing to the New Children's Hospital project both as a donator and by challenging other companies in its industry to join the effort," says Anne Berner, Chairman of the board of the Association and Foundation New Children's hospital 2017. "This project is a joint effort that needs the help of all citizens and Finnish companies. Together we build the future," she continues.
