Reading time ( words)

Scanfil has decided to expand its operations in Sieradz, Poland. The size of the Sieradz plant will be doubled by the end of 2017. The new facilities will house a modern electronics plant to respond to growing customer demand.

The company has acquired the required land, and the design of the 8,500 square meter expansion of the current building has already been started. In addition to the production facilities, the investment covers significant machinery and equipment for electronics manufacturing, which increases the plant’s SMT -capacity and boosts the assembly of box build products.  Another objective of these investments is to improve the efficiency of the plant by, for example, streamlining internal material flows.

CEO Petteri Jokitalo:

“We believe that growth will continue at our plant in Poland, and the objective of this investment is to secure our services and competitiveness, also in the future. For our customers, this investment means that we are better able to respond to their growing demand in Europe and also globally.”
