Impact Coatings is moving to new headquarters in Linköping in the autumn of 2024. The new facility is under construction and situated in Kåparp, directly adjacent to Mjärdevi and Linköping Science Park, as well as Linköping University. The new two-story building will mean significantly expanded opportunities for production and development of the company's sustainable coating solutions within PVD technology. Wilzéns Fastighetsförvaltning will own and manage the property. Groundwork has begun and construction will start in the fall.
With the new headquarters, amounting to nearly 3,000 m2, Impact Coatings doubles the production area in Linköping, together with departmentalized office spaces, conference rooms, and with the possibility of expansion over time. This means an increased capacity to deliver coating services from the company's Swedish Coating Service Center, which also serves as a demo center for customers. It allows for greater production of industrial PVD systems for customers and for the company's own coating operations, while offering larger development areas and a new lab for the company’s R&D department.
Impact Coatings is in an expansive phase, underpinned by a rapid global development in green fossil-free hydrogen, where coating technology is needed and demanded in the area. The construction project in Linköping takes place at the same time as the company has started production in a new Coating Service Center in Shanghai, China, and plans for another establishment in the USA in 2024.
“The new headquarters is an important puzzle piece in our growth journey. With a new attractive location, an advantageous logistical placement, and production-optimized workspaces in a modern environment we will be able to continue to attract the region’s best talent. At the same time, we can grow our business and streamline as well as 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 Kanon, CEO of 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.
