HANZA Mechanics Tartu expands with sheet metal extension

The new factory extension is located in the heart of the plant and combines sheet metal and assembly production in a single factory complex with an automated transportation gallery. The sheet metal extension is approximately 3,700 m2 in size, increasing the sheet metal production area to 6,200 m2.

The investment in machinery includes a flexible warehouse solution where machines communicate directly with the automated warehouse system, new bending centers, bending machines and a robot, an extension of the powder coating line and a gallery tunnel connecting our assembly and sheet metal building for the transport of goods.

Integrating complex supply chains into unified solutions under one roof, known at HANZA as Manufacturing Clusters, strengthens the ability to offer customers more competitive services.

Various smart technologies and digitalization enable increased efficiency and productivity and HANZA thus remains competitive in a rapidly changing world. ESG factors have been heavily considered for this investment, resulting in solar farms on the roofs of the new production buildings and an automated transportation garage connecting the buildings.

The factory opening was held on June 7 and the ribbon was cut by Harri Värv, CFO of HANZA Cluster Baltics, Jarno Laur, Mayor of Tartu, Erik Stenfors, CEO HANZA, Liivar Kongi, Cluster President HANZA Baltcis, and Tiit Riisalo, Minister of Economic Affairs and Information Technology.
