Engineered polymer solutions specialist Trelleborg will invest in a new, ‘state-of-the-art’ production facility for sealing solutions in Denmark. The investment will see the Swedish company’s Trelleborg Sealing Solutions business area relocate its manufacturing in Denmark to the new site.
According to a statement from Trelleborg, the investment in Denmark is intended to transform and further expand the current capabilities of the existing facility to demonstrate future manufacturing principles and technologies that enable profitable sales growth.
“The Danish operation is one of our most important ones globally, with committed employees and a product and material portfolio that offers high-end solutions to the most demanding of sealing applications.” said Claus Barsøe, President of the Trelleborg Sealing Solutions business area.
“The new production facility will be dedicated to highly automated and lean production lines for the automotive, aerospace and renewable energy industries, contributing to better business and higher technical customer support.”
Trelleborg Sealing Solutions’ new facility will be located close to its existing one in Helsing ør, Denmark. During the period 2017-2020, Trelleborg will invest a total of approximately SEK 120 million (€12.6 million). Production at the new facility is expected to start at the beginning of 2020.
