Lujabetoni invests in new SL-deck factory

On 8 february 2018, Lujabetoni concluded the acquisition of a large factory building close to helsinki. With the new production facilities, Lujabetoni significantly increases the SL-deck production capacity after a succesful product launch, where the entire capacity for 2018 was sold out in just a few months.

Following the launch of the SL-deck on the Finnish market, Lujabetoni has experienced an enormous demand for SL-decks that has not been possible to satisfy with the first production line in Siilinjärvi. In order to keep up with demand, Lujabetoni has decided to invest in new and much bigger production facilities in Järvenpää, just 46 km from Helsinki.

“We presented the SL-deck to the market in December and our full-year production capacity is already been sold out. We wanted to quickly increase our capacity to our most important target market, the residential market in the Helsinki metropolitan area. With the investment, we now add hundreds of thousands m2 of annual Superlaatta (SL-deck) capacity to the Finnish market,” says Mikko Isotalo, CEO of Lujabetoni.

The acquisition was carried out on 8 February 2018 and includes app. 30,000 m2 of production space, 5,000 m2 of office space and around 25 hectars of land making it the largest precast factory in Finland in terms of its size. In addition to SL-decks, the new factory will also include production of partition walls, wall elements and a variety of specialty elements for residential projects. The goal is to start production already during 2018 and increase it rapidly.

“The location of the factory is excellent, when considering Finland’s most important markets – the capital city area, Tampere and Turku – and we have room and possibilities to increase production capacity further,” says Kari Turunen, head of the precast division at Lujabetoni.

The investment totals around €25 million and is the largest ever made by Lujabetoni.
