As part of the development of Stena Components, its operations in Molkom were sold during the year. Instead, the company’s focus is on developing and further strengthening its operations in Nybro. Among other measures, major investments were made in technology, not least in new, more efficient plasma cutting and advanced machining equipment. By increasing the degree of automation in manufacturing processes, resources can be freed up and used for more complex tasks. These initiatives will also lead to increased opportunities to manufacture components in longer series, primarily for large customers in the automotive and manufacturing sectors.
PRODUCTION THAT MEETS HIGH DEMANDS
One major project during the year saw the manufacture of components for specially-designed containers used to store demolition material from Oskarshamn’s nuclear power plant. To meet current requirements and prevent radiation, the walls need to be up to 15 centimeters thick. Handling and machining sheet steel of this size makes extra demands on expertise and equipment.
NEW DIGITAL CHANNEL, NEW CUSTOMER GROUPS
Digitalization offers new opportunities in sales. The development of a web-based sales channel, launched in the fall of 2019, will streamline the sales process and provide access to new customer groups.
