Pekka Anttila | Chairman
Pekka is the Founder and Chairman of SUDEL and has overseen the growth of the company from its initial beginnings in Whyalla and Olympic Dam, through expansion of operations into Adelaide and Melbourne, including emergence into the provision of calibration services.
Pekka is formally qualified as an instrument technician as well as in process control and automation engineering, achieved in his native city of Oulu, Finland. Before coming to Australia, Pekka lectured in process control and automation at the Industry Training Institute of Finland. Upon migrating to Australia, Pekka spent several years as an instrument technician, particularly specialised in instrumentation services within heavy industry - Mining, Oil and Gas.
His initiative, drive and management approach quickly saw him move into general management roles. Pekka later saw an opportunity to establish Sudel Industries (SUDEL) in Whyalla in 1991 as a specialist company providing services in industrial instrumentation and process control, primarily supporting regional mining and steelworks activity.
Pekka embodies, and has driven, the fundamental philosophy and culture within SUDEL of ensuring that the job gets done, and gets done right.
