VBN Components, Uppsala, Sweden, celebrated the opening of its previously announced new premises on Nov 10, 2021. While the inauguration was postponed due to COVID-19 pandemic, the move took place in the spring of this year as a response to growing customer demand.

The new facility is three times larger than its previous premises, and is expected to enable the increase of production capacity and a more streamlined workflow. As well as the additional space, VBN has already expanded its personnel and plans to add more machines in the coming months.

Johan Bäckström, CEO, stated, ”It feels good that we can finally inaugurate our new, spacious and production-adapted premises together with our partners, and that it coincides with the fact that we have received new serial production orders.”
