Tepcomp Group, a Finnish contract manufacturer of electronics, has made a significant investment in its production plant in Turku. The new surface mount technology production line will significantly improve the productivity and energy efficiency of the plant.

According to Pekka Leppälä, CEO of Tepcomp Group, the 1.2 million investment will further increase the company’s competitive ability.

“Especially in these challenging times, Finland needs new investments, and we at Tepcomp firmly believe in the future,” Leppälä says. “By investing, we can increase our production capacity even further and improve our competitive ability on international markets.”

For Tepcomp, economic and ecological efficiency are objectives that support each other. New technologies bring increasingly more challenging products to the market, and Tepcomp’s new, modern production line can meet the requirements of electronics manufacture better.

“The investment in the Turku factory is also a significant step towards more environment-friendly production. By replacing two older production with a single state-of-the-art line, in addition to productivity, we are constantly developing our production in a more ecological direction in a
responsible manner.”

Tepcomp has been involved in contract manufacture of electronics in the fields of health care technology, LED electronics, and industrial electronics since 1985. The company’s comprehensive quality system and certificates ensure that their production is characterised by the highest level of reliability in the field.

“With the new production line, above all, the traceability, accuracy, and speed of health care and medical equipment production will be decisively improved,” Leppälä says.

In the 2010s, Tepcomp Group became internationalised and enjoyed hearty growth. In 2019, the company’s turnover was approx. 15 million Euro; more than 50% of its products are exported. Every year, Tepcomp delivers approx. 5,000 shipments to a hundred different customers in Europe, Asia, and North America.
