On March 10, AmCham Estonia led its first outreach trip of the year. This time we took over 20 members to Eastern Virumaa and visited Kohtla-Järve to meet and explore the Regional Company of the year 2016 – Eastman Specialties OÜ.
Eastman is a global specialty chemical company that produces a broad range of advanced materials, additives and functional products, specialty chemicals and fibers that are found in products people use every day. Eastman Specialties OÜ in Estonia is the only plant of the group that specializes in benzoic acid. Other products that they produce are sodium benzoate and plasticizer. Eastman Specialties OÜ is also very dedicated to giving back to the community and supporting different charity project and education.
After visiting the company our members got to enjoy a networking lunch at the beautiful Saka Manor.
We would like to thank Hannes Reinula and his team for organizing this wonderful event and giving us the opportunity to learn more about the company! And of course we would like to thank all our members for joining us for this trip!
