Reading time ( words)

HANZA Holding AB (publ) officially opens its new production facility in Tartu, Estonia. The new plant strengthens HANZA’s position as a unique supplier of regional and complete manufacturing and creates additional capacity for further growth.

In December 2020, HANZA announced that the company would build a new production plant during 2021, to be opened during the first quarter of 2022. The factory is now completed and constitutes an important part of HANZA's expansion strategy.

HANZA's Chairman of the Board, Francesco Franzé, leads the opening ceremony together with the Ambassador of Sweden in Estonia, H.E. Ms. Ingrid Tersman and the Mayor of Tartu County, Jarno Laur.

"This is an important milestone in HANZA’s development," says Francesco Franzé, Chairman of the Board of HANZA. "A new, modern facility in Estonia, tailormade for complex assembly, creates a strong foundation for continued rapid growth."

"We experience more and more companies suffering from disruptions in the supply chain," says Erik Stenfors, CEO, HANZA. "We provide an alternative through complete and local manufacturing, which does not only create a more reliable supply-chain, but also increased flexibility and lower cost."

"With both parts production and final assembly in the same area, we reduce our carbon footprint," says Emöke Sogenbits, President Cluster Baltics. "To create an optimal manufacturing flow, we have built the new plant directly adjacent to our existing facility for sheet metal production."

The investment in the new plant of 12,000 sqm amounts to approximately SEK 80 million. The opening is celebrated today with HANZA colleagues, customers, suppliers as well as local authorities and partners.

Knowledge transfer, especially from the “graying-out” experienced technical workers in our industry, is a complex, difficult family of problems. It differs wildly between companies, and even within divisions of the same company. One of the biggest barriers is the full manufacturing schedules in North American electronics companies that don’t leave any slack time—and the 40-hour work week is a complete fantasy for many.

Buy new or make do? It’s an age-old debate for manufacturers who are trying to decide how best to manage machine assets inside their manufacturing facilities. New machines are expensive, but so is operating existing machines at a comparative deficit.

Finding Solutions in the Quoting Process

05/03/2022 | Duane Benson, Screaming Circuits
It’s easy to frame all our supply chain woes around the COVID-19 pandemic. However, at Screaming Circuits, we started receiving dire warnings about component shortages in early 2018. At that time, we were told that the supply upheaval could last years and that we should expect it to get much worse before it got better. Now, four years later, I would say those warnings nailed it.
