Neles has announced that it is optimizing its production operations and will commission a new production unit at its valve factory located in Vantaa, Finland. The project enables Neles to improve the availability and delivery times of its valve solutions and further develop the environmental performance of the Vantaa technology center. The new unit is scheduled to start operations in early 2022.
“Global business requires modern, efficient, and responsible production that adapts to customers’ needs and guarantees deliveries even in exceptional circumstances, such as that experienced throughout the Covid pandemic… By developing our delivery processes alongside the production solutions, we can further improve the availability and delivery times of our products, while preparing for future needs,” says Timo Hänninen, Head of Valve Equipment Business Line, Neles.
Every year, a total of 130,000 valves, valve controls, and actuators are manufactured by Neles at the Vantaa factory for delivery to customers operating in different process industries around the world. The new unit will focus on the manufacturing of high-volume valve products. As a part of the project, the production process and the factory operating model will be optimized, especially from the perspective of project deliveries.
“The new unit and the layout modifications to the current factory will free up space for the production of special valves and bring more efficiency to demanding project deliveries. In addition, we are constantly developing the environmental and energy efficiency of our operations,” says Timi Nieminen, Director of Neles’ Vantaa factory.
