With building permits in place, Habia Cable has announced the pending construction of a new production facility in Poland, in a move that will see the current 2,900 sqm production area expand to almost 5,000 sqm, and open up possibilities for further expansion in the future.
The decision follows a period of growth for Habia’s harnessing factory in Poland in recent years. With the factory’s production scaling up and space in the current (rented) building limited, parent company Beijer Alma decided to purchase the land in Poland for the construction of Habia’s first self-built factory in the country.
Agnieszka Pawlowska, Managing Director of Habia Cable Poland, stated: “We’re delighted to see this investment become a reality – it’s a strong signal of confidence in our continued success. This modern facility will allow us to provide even better service to our customers, enabling us to continue the steady growth we’ve seen in recent years.”
The new factory will be in Doluje, close to the existing location outside of Szczecin in southwest Poland. Construction of the facility, which will include a production and warehouse hall, office and an administrative building, has been contracted to PTB Nickel Consortium as general contractor and KREFT Engineering as project supervisor.
The facility has been designed with efficiency and sustainability in mind, with solar panels to harness renewable energy, as well as direct free-cooling to be utiliSed in the production hall ventilation to maintain optimal production conditions. Preparation works are already underway, with the work expected to be completed in summer 2022.
