The 26-year-old Kontinen, who grew up in Tampere, currently occupies fifth place in the ATP doubles ranking list. The parties to the agreement are connected by long-term commitment, high expertise and international presence. “We have both set out from Tampere towards international playing fields. There, competition is very intense, but with determined work we have reached a high level in our respective areas of expertise. Glaston, like Henri, has focused on developing and strengthening its own skills over the long-term, and in this way has reached a peak position internationally,” says Glaston’s President & CEO Arto Metsänen. Over 95% of Glaston’s sales come from outside Finland and, as the global market leader, the company represents the highest quality and technology in its sector. Kontinen, who represents the absolute peak in his sport, is perfectly suited to this operating concept.
