The City of Vantaa has given a special recognition to Okmetic. Okmetic received a Vantaa medal which acknowledges such parties whose actions are worth the city's special recognition. The medal was handed to President Kai Seikku in connection with the Trade and Commerce day of the City of Vantaa, 4th of November.
The Vantaa medal—designed by sculptor Heikki Häiväoja—was mint in honor of Vantaa's becoming a city in 1974. The medal is awarded as recognition for valuable action on behalf of the City of Vantaa. Up to date, 206 medals have been awarded. In 2014, this company-level acknowledgement was awarded to Finnair.
In its arguments the City of Vantaa tells Okmetic is everything that was desired in Aviapolis, Vantaa’s fastest growing business and residential area: an international, growing employer.
