Genelec expands its factory in Finland

Genelec has started what it describes as a ‘new era of sustainable growth’ by opening a new extension to its factory in Iisalmi, Finland. This will let the company increase its space, flexibility and efficiency for its warehousing and logistics operations while allowing consolidation of Genelec’s external warehouses to offer further improvements in the efficiency of material flow, lean manufacturing and reductions in waste and power consumption. The facility will also be powered by sustainable sources including solar, wind and hydroelectric energy.

‘We take our responsibilities to the local community very seriously, so we were really excited to see all the people involved joining forces with us to contribute to the eco-system here in Iisalmi in a sustainable and innovative way,’ said Annika Hujanen, development engineer at Genelec, who managed the expansion project. ‘The work was completed on time, on budget and to a high standard. We’re really proud of what the entire team has achieved.’

Siamak Naghian, managing director at Genelec, added: ‘For over four decades, total quality and sustainability have been core principles of Genelec’s philosophy. The company has strategically regarded environmental issues as being equally important as profitability and, while our consistent growth in business has been the catalyst for this factory expansion, that growth has to be maintained sustainably. Continuing to keep our entire manufacturing base here in Iisalmi means that we can always guarantee not only the premium total quality of our products, but also that our entire design and manufacturing process helps to conserve our precious natural resources.’

The expansion project was managed by Genelec’s development engineer, Annika Hujanen, and provides almost 2km2 of floor space for warehousing and logistics, with considerable additional space for customer support offices, a centralised automation control centre and efficient waste processing. In keeping with Genelec’s environmental policies, all architects, designers and contractors were chosen for the project based on both their sustainability credentials and their close proximity to Iisalmi, resulting in less travel, better material logistics, and reduced waste and CO2 emissions.
