Kitron ASA recently celebrated the official opening of its new facility at Torsvik in Jönköping, Sweden.
"Kitron has experienced substantial growth in the Swedish market, and we expect this positive trend to continue. This new facility enables us to serve Swedish manufacturers even more efficiently in the future. It is also a platform on which to build our offering of more advanced services," said Stefan Hansson Mutas, Managing Director of Kitron Sweden.
Over the past months, Kitron's operation in Jönköping has been moved to the new facility, according to budget and without significant technical problems. Kitron has invested approximately SEK25 million in the new facility and equipment.

This leaves us with a portfolio of very competitive production facilities, further strengthening our position as the leading EMS company in Scandinavia," said Peter Nilsson, CEO of Kitron ASA.
