Test World has been selected as the winner of this award by the Inari Entrepreneurs Association due to the importance of Test World across the whole Inari region. Over many years it has provided jobs for local residents. 96% of Test World’s customers are international, so local companies also benefit from the business of Test World’s customers when they travel to the site.
Test World has been described as a pioneer in its field by offering outdoor track facilities for use by other companies and heavily investing in its indoor testing facilities. It is extremely rare for this accolade to be awarded to an organization that is not locally-owned.
Janne Seurujärvi, Managing Director at Test World, said: “The recognition we have received from other companies in our area is highly valued by us. It demonstrates the trust and cooperation between companies in our local area and inspires us to continue developing alongside others. I would like to thank all the employees of Test World, who work proudly every day to provide our customers with the best winter testing services in the world. This award belongs to all of you!”
Test World was selected as the winner by the Inari Entrepreneurs, an organization that is part of the Federation of Finnish Enterprises. This is the largest and most influential business federation in Finland. It plays an active role in ensuring that Finnish political decision-makers act to improve the environment that small and medium-sized enterprises operate in. They also provide information to the public to help influence opinions and raise public awareness of entrepreneurship in Finland.
Test World also received the Tire Industry's Supplier of the Year Award at the Tire Technology International Awards for Innovation and Excellence earlier this year. This was awarded in recognition of the continued investment in Test World’s expanded indoor test facilities which means it offers controlled and repeatable testing on snow, ice, and wet and dry asphalt, 365 days a year.
