Also present were different representatives of the public administrations and members of the Antequera business sector. After the formal ceremony with the Peña de los Enamorados as a backdrop, Kinnunen said he had been “very happy” to start the construction of these facilities in which his firm will invest 30 million euros and create 100 direct jobs, although it is estimated that will be actually more than 200 jobs related to the activity of this plant that will have the capacity to manufacture about 1,000 complete enclosures and units a week.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
