HANZA Holding AB has launched two new manufacturing technologies—heat treatment and non-destructive testing—to further strengthen its offerings at its manufacturing cluster in Sweden. In particular, HANZA has introduced the heat treatment both as part of the production process and as an independent service.
The technology expansion has been developed in close cooperation with HANZA's customers and is based on a so-called HANZA CORE project that includes technology development, investment and education programs.
"HANZA's unique business model with Manufacturing Clusters provides cost-effective production with higher delivery precision and lower environmental impact than classic contract manufacturers," says Dag Furtemark, President, Cluster Sweden. "The technology broadening we are now implementing brings new benefits to our customers, including in aerospace and energy segment."
