Ponsse opens factory expansion


Minister of Economic Affairs Mika Lintilä opened Ponsse’s new factory expansion in Vieremä. The factory expansion means a significant step for Ponsse’s production development and competitiveness.

The factory investment is the largest in Ponsse’s history, expanding the production facilities from 2,700 m2 to 4,000 m2. Above all, the investment means a leap forward in terms of production technology. “The new factory facilitates the strong development of quality, flexibility, occupational safety and productivity.  We are able to react more flexibly to changes in the market situation and ensure effective customer variation of PONSSE forest machines in serial production conditions,” says Juho Nummela, President and CEO of Ponsse Plc.

Minister of Economic Affairs Mika Lintilä, who opened the factory, stated in his speech that the expansion is an example of the belief in the future that has characterised Ponsse throughout its history.  “This raises Ponsse’s competitiveness to yet another level. The continuous development of processes, the world’s best forest machines and the best quality offered to customers sound like excellent objectives. However, I am certain that Ponsse’s true success is based on strong values and fair play. That will always get you far,” said Minister Lintilä.

Smart technology transforms storage logistics
The new factory uses new smart storage technology that enables a smooth flow of components to production lines. This has significantly increased productivity of storage logistics and reduced manual handling of components. The storage automation includes 15,500 storage places for small goods and 3,900 pallet places.

The construction of the new factory started in early 2016. All PONSSE forest machines are manufactured in Vieremä at the world’s most modern forest machine factory.
