Expanding Production Capacity at Linköping HQ
Impact Coatings has had its main office and production facility in Linköping, since the company was founded in 1997. For 20 years our premises in the area known as Ebbepark have grown with us and adapted to our needs, and we’re currently in the middle of yet another exciting growth-spurt which places new demands on our production site.
Construction work has already begun and is now well underway to increase in-house production capacity, both for our Coating Services’ department and for our systems assembly line. To accommodate this increased capacity, the area which is designated for office and administration is being streamlined and developed to fit new company needs to allow for more flexible work. The result will be an approximate 30% increase in production floor space, which will allow for further optimization of our current production flows.
A new machine hall will be prepared to contain an automated production line for Coating Services, where the team primarily will provide coating technology for metal bipolar plates for PEM fuel cells.
“We are excited to move into the new facility. The production of the Ceramic MAXPHASE coating for PEM fuel cells has increased throughout 2021. The new automated line will add capacity and allow us to support additional hydrogen and fuel cell customers.”
— Carina Höglund, VP Coating Services.
Additionally, the automated production line and upgraded production flow is also planned to function as a demo center for visiting customers and partners. We already know that our technology is ideal for integration in automated production for a wide variety of applications, and we look forward to being able to showcase this on our own production floor.
