Some 150 guests attended the opening ceremony at the end of May, among them key customers, suppliers, partners, local officials and dignitaries, and members of the media. Cavotec board members and management team were also present.

Cavotec CEO, Mikael Norin, opened the ceremony. Following a series of keynote addresses, guests were taken on a guided tour of the facility. The world-class production plant features the latest in sustainable building materials and technologies, including the capacity to generate 230kW of solar power. It is also equipped with geothermal heating, has 2,730m2 of office space, and 12,264m2 devoted to engineering and production. 

“Not only are we opening a state-oft-he-art production facility, we’re opening a new chapter in the Cavotec story. These premises will ensure that we build the manufacturing and supply chain excellence that will see Cavotec realize its full potential,” Norin said.
