Komatsu Forest has both headquarters and manufacturing in Umeå, Sweden. The new factory will be built on the industrial area Klockarbäcken in the outskirts of the city and this is one of the largest investments in industrial Sweden right now.
The factory will be carbon neutral in its production, which is achieved through efficient energy supply with solar panels, modern building techniques and geo energy. As for IoT, Komatsu Forest will take a step towards the fourth-generation industry, where the company's manufacturing process will be connected.
The ambition is also that the new factory will further strengthen the region's position as a leader in the field of forest technology.
The factory will be something of a unique landmark with its nearly 40,000 m2 divided into production area on two floors and an associated office building in six floors. The finished factory will be inaugurated in 2021.
