Nord-Lock Group has inaugurated the core of its business, Nord-Lock's production facility in Mattmar, Sweden, where everything started almost 40 years ago. The inauguration is the third in 2021, a result of the Group's focus on expansion to meet increasing demand.
In 2019, the first sod was laid for the Group's most extensive expansion project ever, by upgrading and expanding the three largest production units in the business, the foundation is created for more future-proof production and development for the company.
In February, the Group's CEO Fredrik Meuller inaugurated Expander's operations in Åtvidaberg, Sweden, with a doubled production area to meet market demand for, among other things, pivot pins.
Less than two weeks ago, the Group's brand-new unit was inaugurated in Pittsburgh, USA, which will be the base for the company's Superbolt production and US sales offices.
The expansion of Nord-Lock's operations in Mattmar, Sweden, is inaugurated together with Governor Marita Ljung, Investment AB Latour's CEO Johan Hjertonsson and the Group's CEO Fredrik Meuller. The facility is the heart of Nord-Lock Group and has now a significantly larger production area and a new office building.
“We are seeing a sharp increase in demand for our solutions from customers all over the world, and to ensure future needs, we have expanded our three largest units during the pandemic and invested in state-of-the-art equipment. Today we are very happy and proud to be able to inaugurate our expanded business right here in Mattmar. The new facility ensures long-term production capacity and provides us with a good basis for continued focus on innovation and development of world-leading bolting solutions. The focus for the expansion has been to create sustainable production and create a better working environment for our employees,” says Fredrik Meuller, President and CEO of Nord-Lock Group.
