Sat on the tarmac looking out the window at a snowy Helsinki airport, waiting for the early morning flight to London to take off. You are reminded of the Finnish spirit that keeps the airport open and the planes in the air. The well-practiced line of 10 snowploughs clearing the runway and the de-icing crew in the right place at the right time to clear the wings to ensure our safe flight. This is the spirit and drive at the heart of Bladefence.
We are now recruiting Blade Repair Technicians / Engineers to cover the needs of our rapidly growing customer base in Europe and Canada.
We have now welcomed the year 2016 and even many of the Southern parts of Finland have finally received a white cover of snow.The start of the winter was unusually mild, which allowed normal blade maintenance to be carried out until November / December even in the Nordic countries. Now the real winter has arrived, and the cold climate sets its own challenges on the blades and the blade maintenance work up north. We cannot emphasize enough the increased need of regular maintenance in order for the blades to remain intact in the icy weather conditions. Planned and preventive blade maintenance is the key.
After five years of operating in Europe and becoming one of the leading independent blade service providers in Northern Europe, I'm happy to announce that Bladefence is expanding to Canadian market for the season 2016!
