Teknoware’s factory expansion driven by environmentally-friendly technology
Teknoware’s latest factory expansion in Lahti, Finland has increased its production facilities for manufacturing LED lights and lighting electronics. The products manufactured at the new factory are aimed for global markets, for both vehicle and emergency lighting customers.
The investment in the new facilities and highly-automated machinery is designed to ensure rapid delivery of high- and medium-volume products, and makes it possible to expand capacity quickly in the future.
Teknoware says that the expansion also increases the quality of its products, with climate-controlled storage facilities, and automated testing systems.
The new factory is also designed with the environment in mind and is equipped with a geothermal heating and cooling system, in order to keep the temperatures in the premises constantly at comfortable levels. All the lighting in the new building is based on the latest LED technology, controlled by sensors and timers, offering further savings in energy consumption.
Electric cars have also been taken into account, by adding charging stations in the parking place, and renewable energy, produced by wind turbines is used in all premises of Teknoware in Lahti, including the existing buildings and factories.
