Last year, MultiDocker moved production of its smallest machine, CH600, to Norrköping, Sweden. The move proved to be right as changing production facility has brought increased efficiency in production, higher quality machines, and lower costs. Following the successes, MultiDocker decided to consolidate all production to the facility in Norrköping.
“We are very pleased with the result the new production facility generates,” says Maria Bogren, CEO at MultiDocker. “It has enabled us to shorten delivery times and minimize claims after customer take-over. Often, claims are close to none now,” Maria continues.
Currently in the facility, machines are being produced for forestry customers in Canada and Brazil. This industry demands material handlers that are durable with high capacity and uptime. These machines need to deliver increased efficiency with lower emissions and energy use.
“Consolidating our production enables us to work with smarter solutions and continue to innovate and develop our products,” explains Maria. “We are also able to lower costs, which is very important in our industry. Our production team is experienced and lean and we complement our in-house capability with carefully selected vendors who know our business well,” Maria says. Current production capacity is three machines per month and production slots are already filled up until mid-year, with an expectation to further increase production in the fall. MultiDocker’s electric machine, E-Power, is also expected to be produced in the facility later in the year.
