Ponsse invests in new production facilities in Vieremä, Finland. The new expansion is expected to be completed in autumn 2017, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
In addition to the new facilities, Ponsse will increase the level of automation in its production. The purpose of this investment is to manufacture products of an even higher level of quality, heavily improve productivity and offer a safe working environment.
The expansion investment was kicked off by clearing the land area in Vieremä, and the actual construction will be started at the beginning of September.
“This investment secures the quality of our products and production in every situation. We are looking for more productivity and flexibility. Demand for PONSSE machines is high and the future of the forest industry is looking bright in many of our market areas,” President and CEO of Ponsse Plc Juho Nummela says.
Ponsse reviews investments across economic cycles, and this investment expands the company's long-term development work. In the past five years, Ponsse has invested a total of Euro 87 million in facilities and machinery. During the next two years, it will invest Euro 28–32 million in the development of production.
Ponsse Plc specialises in the sales, production, maintenance and technology of cut-to-length method forest machines.
