Woikoski, an industrial gas supply company, has been awarded the right to display the Key Flag symbol for its gases, in order to stress the Finnish origin of its products and services.
The accolade, awarded to the company on 2nd February 2016, marks them among the companies known to produce high-quality Finnish products, and ensures that consumers know the product or service has been produced in Finland.
The symbol will now be displayed for the following gases: oxygen (O2), nitrogen (N2), argon (Ar), hydrogen (H2) and carbon dioxide (CO2), as well as for Ar gas mixtures Awomix, Awodrop, SK-2, SK-18, SK-25, and SO-2.
