“Today’s busy on-the-go lifestyle increases demand for takeaway foods and drinks. This creates growth opportunities for us, and with the investment we are better able to capture those,” said Maisa Katila, GM for Huhtamaki Foodservice Nordics.
As part of the investment, the Hämeenlinna unit’s machine base will also be partially renewed and automation will be increased. Competitiveness will also be improved by designing the new facility according to Lean manufacturing principles. The modernization of the manufacturing facility will also improve workplace safety and ergonomics.
“Hämeenlinna is a good location for our manufacturing unit. We have skilled and experienced employees here and we source our main raw material from nearby. With the new facility we can serve our customers in the Nordic and Baltic countries even better,” said Katila.
