HANZA Builds New Production Facility in Estonia

Reading time ( words)

HANZA Holding AB expands its capacity for regional manufacturing in the Baltics and invests approximately SEK 80 million in a new production facility of just over 12,000 m2 in Tartu, Estonia.

"We are now building a tailor-made factory for complex assembly, which creates capacity for continued growth and supports our solution for sustainable manufacturing," says HANZA's CEO Erik Stenfors.

HANZA's new plant will be built directly adjacent to HANZA's production plant for sheet metal production. The total investment amounts to approximately SEK 80 million and is financed with a combination of own funds and bank loans.

“The future requires regionalized manufacturing. With the new facility, we are ready for significantly increased volumes from both new and existing customers,” says Emöke Sogenbits, CEO of HANZA's manufacturing cluster in the Baltics. "Manufacturing in our cluster also reduces the carbon footprint by having both production and assembly in the same place," continues Emöke Sogenbits, who has won several awards for her successful work in the manufacturing industry. 

Work on the new building will begin immediately and the opening is planned to take place during the first quarter of 2022. For complex assembly, HANZA currently uses smaller, rented premises that will be vacated. HANZA also intends to expand the machine park in Tartu as well as the premises for the sheet metal business and has acquired land adjacent to the existing factory. 

"We look forward to offering our customers and our HANZA team a developed manufacturing cluster where we continue to gather advanced technology, expertise and consulting services under one roof," says Emöke Sogenbits.

Companies have been collecting data in large volumes. Highly varied data from manufacturing operations comes in quickly that needs to be validated, and its value prioritized so that it can be turned into something useful—transformed from big data to smart data. The amount of data available has grown exponentially into big data. Twenty years ago, a PCB work order resulted in 100 data records, megabytes of data; today, it is 10 billion records, terabytes of data. The investment in collecting this data and storing it is high. However, without a way to analyze the data, without analytics, it will not result in ROI.

Whenever we discuss data, keep in mind that people have been collecting data, verifying it, and translating it into reports for a long time. And if data is collected and processes are changed automatically, people still will be interpreting and verifying the accuracy of the data, creating reports, making recommendations, solving problems, tweaking, improving, and innovating. Whatever data collection system is used, any effort to digitalize needs to engage and empower the production team at the factory. Their role is to attend to the manufacturing process but also to act as the front line of communications and control.
