Cimcorp, Canada, completed the newly expanded headquarters in Ulvila, Finland. This expansion nearly doubles the building footprint of its existing headquarters.
Cimcorp acquired the plot of land adjacent to its headquarters in 2017, and began construction of the new production and office facilities in summer 2018. Altogether, the expansion secures 5,700 square meters of additional factory space and another 2,200 square meters of office space over three floors, including additional space for research and development. With this extension, Cimcorp’s production capacity can increase by more than 100%.
“This investment marks an important step in the execution of our growth strategy. The building expansion will provide us with the much-needed space to continue expanding our product lines and solutions, which are in high demand, to better serve our customers with their intralogistics challenges,” says Masatoshi Wakabayashi, chief executive officer. “Sales are continuing to rise. In fact, we received our largest ever order in the intralogistics market—worth over 120 million euros—from the Spanish grocery giant Mercadona this spring.”
Cimcorp is also investing in the renovation and refurbishment of its existing facilities.
“Our expansion is much more than simply a new building,” says Wakabayashi. “The premises merely facilitate our growth. It is the people who work in the buildings that optimize their potential and make that growth a reality. Our strategic goal is to listen, to learn and to improve. All our prototypes and developments are made with our customers, and the challenges they are facing in mind. In order to succeed in this, we recognize that our employees are our most valuable asset.”
