Sulzer Pumps Finland Oy’s internal logistics operations at the Kotka plant will be transferred to HUB logistics Packaging Oy as a result of the investment project.
Sulzer Pumps Finland Oy will launch the investment project in April 2021 and it will be completed during the first half of 2022. Sulzer will significantly increase the quantity of equipment manufactured in Kotka once the investment is completed. In connection with the project, a new building of 5,300 square meters will be built in the immediate vicinity of Sulzer’s Kotka plant. The new logistics center will streamline Sulzer’s material operations.
HUB logistics Packaging Oy and Sulzer Pumps Finland Oy have agreed to deepen the strategic partnership in connection with the project. Sulzer Pumps Finland’s Kotka plant’s internal logistics operations will be transferred in part to HUB logistics.
The internal logistics personnel will be transferred to HUB logistics Packaging Oy as former employees. HUB logistics continues moving business in Karhula Industrial Park and invests in logistics and material handling.
The implemented investment package is considered to have a very positive effect on the competitiveness of the Kymenlaakso mechanical engineering industry in international markets as well. The investments will support the business growth and success of all parties involved in the project.
