Päivi Lindqvist

Group CFO at Glaston

Glaston’s 2019 acquisition of Bystronic glass led to a strategic shift from decentralized finance operations to a centralized model in Tampere, Finland.

This change merged legal entities, consolidated headcount, and harmonized systems across global offices. Centralizing finance operations from the UK, Singapore, the US, and Switzerland to Tampere, supported by a global ERP system rollout, resulted in significant cost savings, improved process efficiency, and enhanced operational effectiveness.

The financial services team played a crucial role in managing this transition seamlessly. This presentation details the journey, current operational state with a unified ERP system, and outlines future plans to optimize Glaston’s global setup for continued growth and operational excellence.
