Logistic Contractor, a company in the Wästbygg Group, has signed a contract with kitchen specialist Nobia for the construction of their new production facility south of Jönköping. It will have an area of 123,000 sqm and will be built on a single level. The order value is approximately SEK 460 million. The building is to be certified according to the BREEAM Very Good standard, which focuses strongly on sustainability in line with both Nobia’s and Logistic Contractor’s high ambitions in this area.
‘Nobia’s production facility is a very exciting project, not least in light of our stated strategy of expanding our products to include industrial facilities. Our task is to construct the actual building so as to create the best possible conditions for the client’s operations. Meanwhile, Nobia will engage separate contractors for the installations, interior fittings and the fitting of the equipment required for kitchen manufacturing. Our positive dialogue during the contract negotiations has created a solid foundation for continued fruitful collaboration,’ says Benn Karlberg, CEO, Logistic Contractor.
The new production facility is Nobia’s biggest investment to date. Once completed, it will be one of Europe’s most modern kitchen manufacturing facilities, with a high degree of automation and digitalisation and excellent environmental and sustainability performance.
‘Not many companies have Logistic Contractor’s experience when it comes to constructing buildings of this magnitude. We are confident in our choice of partner and look forward to seeing our new production facility take shape over the coming year,’ says Jon Sintorn, President and CEO, Nobia.
The work will start immediately, and the building is to be handed over during summer 2022.
