Summer – the long-awaited season – is here again! And we managed to open this season with our traditional Summer Party after the long COVID-19 era.

Reaching net zero by 2050 is perhaps the biggest challenge for humankind ever! Yaskawa Environmental Energy / The Switch has always been developing technologies and products that enable you, our customers, to provide solutions that contribute to the journey toward net zero.
The Switch was established in 2006. So, this year, we’re celebrating 15 years of permanent performance with our customers, suppliers and other partners.
Summer has arrived bringing us endless days and white nights. This time, due to COVID-19, the cold and dark winter has felt longer than ever before. Luckily, now we seem to be on top of this pandemic, and life is normalizing.
I promised you last July in my first newsletter to keep our customers in the center of all our activities. I made this promise because I really believe that key to our success as a product supplier is to support the business of our existing and new customers in all possible ways.
As we come to the end of this calendar year, it is a good time to look back on our achievements and the major happenings of 2020.
I feel that I wrote my last newsletter intro just recently. Still, it seems to be already more than 3 months ago. I must say time is flying fast 😊! But then again while looking back, I can see that a lot has happened since July.
This is my first opportunity to write in our newsletter as the Division President of Yaskawa Environmental Energy (EED) and Chairman of the Board of The Switch. Needless to say, I am pretty excited about this new and challenging role at the company.
The fight against the coronavirus is taking a lot of extra time from all of us. But we at The Switch are well positioned to get past these temporary difficulties. Our factories are keeping up 100% production capacity. And we continue delivering our products as promised.
