New Headquarters in Sweden 2024
Impact Coatings is expanding, and we are preparing to move to new premises in Linköping, Sweden. The new headquarters will be located adjacent to Linköping University and Linköping Science Park, in close proximity to Linköping’s innovation hotspots. The facility is being built and optimized for our operations and will double our production area. We expect to move in during the second half of 2024.
At Impact Coatings we are entering an expansive phase, underpinned by a rapid global development of green fossil-free hydrogen, where high-performing coating technologies are needed and demanded. Construction of the new headquarters in Linköping takes place at the same time as we have started production in our new Coating Service Center in Shanghai, China, and plan for another Coating Service facility in the USA in 2024.
Doubled Production Area in Sweden
The new Swedish premises, consisting of approximately 3 000 m², will double our production area, resulting in significantly increased capacity for assembly of coating systems, as well as expanded space for our Swedish Coating Service Center.

Our Coating Service Centers are important cornerstones in our complete offering and enable us to fully support customers throughout different process stages – from test and verification of our coating technology, to scaling volume scenarios, continuous production, and handling of peak volumes as a second source. In Sweden, our Coating Service Center will also function as a demo center, where customers can learn more about our complete coating solutions first-hand.
Apart from better capacity to support our customers and continue to grow our business, the new Swedish facility includes new departmental offices and conference rooms, more room for logistics and pre-production such as washing and blasting areas, and an updated lab for the company’s development team.
The facility is being built in close collaboration with Wilzéns Fastighetsförvaltning who will own and manage the property.

“The new headquarters are an important puzzle piece in our growth journey. With a new attractive and advantageous logistical location and production-optimized workspaces in modern premises, we will be able to continue to attract the region’s top talents. At the same time, we can continue to grow our company and streamline and automate our production flows. Key aspects to be able to fully support the fast-growing industries that together with us work on the next generation of energy and transportation solutions”, said Torbjörn Sandberg, CEO at Impact Coatings.
“It is gratifying to carry out this project for Impact Coatings – not least considering their commitment in the green technology sector and use of sustainable production methods, which goes hand in hand with our values,” said Andreas Wilzén, CEO at Wilzéns Fastighetsförvaltning. “I would also like to commend Linköping municipality, for the fast pace and positive attitude throughout the planning process,” he continued.
We will continue to follow the building of our new headquarters until move-in. Make sure to stay tuned for updates.
