"The growing demand in the market means that we must increase our capacity. We have therefore purchased Spenncon's concrete element factory, just north of Hamar," says Stene Bergsløkken, Director Building Systems in Optimera.

"We invest around NOK 100 million in machinery, rebuilding and expansion of the factory. This will be a state-of-the-art production facility of about 9,000 square meters on a 45-acre plot. In addition to elements, roof trusses and construction packages will be produced. When the plant is finished and goes for full machine, we estimate a production value of over MNOK 200 a year," continues Bergsløkken.

The first production in the plant will be at the end of this year. Full production is estimated in the second quarter of 2020.
