I am very pleased that the ramp-up of the new factory in Lithuania has been now completed by a very competent team.

The factory utilizes fossil-free and renewable electricity in its production and processes have been optimized for each customer segment. The location of the factory in Lithuania was decided based on a careful analysis of the current customer closeness in Europe and Russia, and with good logistical connections to the Middle East and Africa regions.

The scope of the center is growing and will cover new areas in the future.
