”I have been incredibly privileged to lead FL Technics for the last four years along its successful growth. Everything that we have achieved has been due to the support and contribution of the entire FL Technics team as well as the trust of our customers and partners. Without them we would not have been able to develop FL Technics into the company it is today. I am certain that with a new leader to stand at the wheel of FL Technics the company will firmly continue with its confident goal-driven strategy worldwide," commented Jonas Butautis.
