Pressrelease: Spaljisten places a large order to Automationsteknik

Spaljisten AB places an order for two highly automated packing and palletizing solutions for 50 million SEK during the Corona crisis.

Spaljisten continues to invest for the future by ordering two super-modern packing and palletizing solutions from Automationsteknik. Through these investments, Spaljisten will greatly increase its production capacity on both kitchen and wardrobe fronts.

The projects are part of Spaljistens large investment plan to greatly increase its capacity and capability. The goal of the investment plan is to further strengthen the Spaljistens position as one of the world's leading manufacturers of fronts for the kitchen and furniture industry. The projects start now in June 2020, with delivery during Q1 and Q3 2021 respectively.

– Spaljisten continues to invest to strengthen its position and profitability. Spaljisten and Automationsteknik have a long and successful partnership for many years,” says Florim Albborn, CEO at Spaljisten.

– Together, we continue to develop our business in terms of profitable growth and competitiveness in the market. It is the single largest deal for Automationsteknik of all time and with this we also ensure our growth that we have as a goal in the coming years. This order created the need for recruitment of new employees. So, in the middle of the tough Corona crisis, we have hired 10 new employees, which is very gratifying,” says Jonas Fischer, CEO at Automationsteknik.


About the project

– Our goal with the project is to be at the forefront of packing fronts. We had to challenge takt times, setup and change over between different products etc. Together with Automationsteknik, we have worked out an innovative solution,” says Tomas Lundberg, project manager at Spaljisten.

– In addition to the large product range and fast takt time, the major challenges of the projects are also to achieve user-friendly and quick setup and change overs between different products. In our close collaboration with Spaljisten we use VR technology where we can quickly test the solution already at the design stage. Thus, operators, maintenance technicians etc. can provide their feedback directly,” says Henrik Fredman, project manager at Automationsteknik.
