Lappset Group has unanimously decided to withdraw its business from the Russian market by ceasing its exports of playground and outdoor sports equipment as well as theme parks as of the 28th of February 2022 until further notice.
Tero Ylinenpaa, CEO;
“Responsibility is one of our core values. As a responsible company, we cannot do business in a country which has directed military actions toward an independent, free nation and a sovereign country. By making this decision, we want to show our solidarity with the people of Ukraine and to strengthen our unity throughout the Western world in the name of human values.”
The Russian market has been among the three most important markets to Lappset during the past years.
The decision is in line with several Finnish business organisations and companies who all have condemned Russia’s brutal actions in Ukraine.
