Project Description

The Salvation Army

Presson offered a helping hand when the Salvation Army’s conference room in Helsinki was due to be renovated.

The Salvation Army has been providing people in need of help with comprehensive assistance for 127 years in Finland. Their headquarters on Uudenmaankatu, built in 1895 in the middle of a slum, is still active. The international Salvation Army is active in 128 countries and operates in 175 different languages. From its very beginning, the Protestant Christian organization has been actively helping poor and socially excluded people.

Companies and private individuals can become involved. The Salvation Army offers a variety of possibilities to be socially responsible.

“The cooperation with Presson was excellent. We think it is absolutely magnificent.”

Kiittelee Joona Junkkari.

After seeing impressive furniture solutions at the offices of a Salvation Army’s partner, Junkkari decided to contact Presson. Junkkari discussed the organization’s requirements for conference rooms directly with the CEO, Hannu Iljanto:

“First, we discussed with Hannu about our possibilities, and we received more and more donations throughout the project. This positive surprise just kept on growing. We are truly grateful for this donation. We think it is absolutely magnificent. All the money we receive is distributed to poor people, so our own needs are often secondary. This is why aid from companies is so important”

Joona Junkkari points out.

“I think the work performed by the Salvation Army is invaluable, and we wanted to support them and do something for Finland. We equipped their conference room with a Presson Interface cable interface system and a 46″ Presson Cabin display as a donation. The table of the conference room was donated by Adi Kalusteet. We also donated a Presson CoffeeTable set with a 46” display, sofa and an armchair.”

“The cooperation with Presson was excellent. They made a lovely first impression and had a great attitude. Their employees were professional and carried out their work cleanly. Particular attention was paid to our opinion and needs in the end result. No careless solutions were applied. We then proceeded to test the functionality of everything and that we knew how to use the equipment.”

“We’ve already held a few meetings, and the feedback has only been positive. The image quality of the displays is clear and excellent. We hold a lot of presentations in our meetings, and now everyone at the table can see the presentation instead of having to squint their eyes to see a small display. It’s so easy to connect any laptop to the cable interface system to show the image displayed by it. And the Cabin has an authentic WOW factor! The way it works with a flick of a switch is amazing.”

Joona Junkkari says gratefully.
