The journey towards the kitchen factory of the future has begun
– This marks an important milestone for the factory in Jönköping. Thanks to the experienced co-workers from Tidaholm, we can now install and operate more machines and speed up production. We are happy for the many colleagues in Tidaholm who want to join our journey and produce kitchens of the future, says Henrik Sundström, factory manager at Nobia's factory in Jönköping.
On Monday, Nobia's new production facility in Jönköping welcomed the first group of roughly 45 employees from the factory in Tidaholm. For one year, employees in Tidaholm are offered a free busride to and from work during working hours. Another 30 employees from Tidaholm will temporarily support the factory's start-up during the fall. Even more will transfer over the next year.
Currently, the production of cabinet parts is starting up in the factory. The work of painting and surface treatment have also began and the factory already manufactures so-called flat packages, with cabinets that customers can assemble themselves. The new factory will produce kitchens for Marbodal and HTH for customers in the Swedish, Norwegian and Finnish markets.
– Despite adjustments in the order of which products we start manufacturing, the work to build Europe's most modern kitchen factory is moving forward quickly. From the end of next year, we will deliver complete kitchens from the state-of-the-art factory here in Jönköping. I am proud and happy that we invest locally in Jönköping and put sustainability and design first, says Henrik Sundström.
