Marvaco Moves to New Facilities in Finland with New Technology โ€“ a Major Step Towards Carbon-Neutral Production

Marvaco’s prepress unit in Ulvila, Finland, saw the greatest change in its history when its plate and DTP production moved to new and eco-efficient premises. This change involves four main goals: increasing overall productivity, significantly reducing the company’s carbon footprint, improving occupational health and safety and making the working environment more pleasant.

The relocation took place in May in a way that allowed the operations to continue with almost no interruptions. The development work reportedly resulted in the industry’s most modern production facilities in the Nordic region. In these facilities, dust control and the reduction of diffuse emissions have been taken into account even better than before. In addition, the new production facilities are in the city of Pori at a logistically sound location, which ensures excellent connections to other parts of Finland and quick 24-hour deliveries to Europe.

Currently, every company is seeking solutions that take them towards carbon-neutral production. Marvaco’s change of facilities is also based on the will to develop environmentally sustainable products and services. The key requirement for the new premises was that they should reduce the company’s carbon footprint significantly. The goal can be achieved through energy-conserving building engineering and geothermal heating and cooling. In addition to these, the operations also use electricity from renewable sources.

At the same time, Marvaco is also investing heavily in new production technologies. During this year, the company is reportedly investing in a new and eco-efficient flexo plate manufacturing technology, as well as the newest-generation screening technology that both offer its clients higher-quality and more environmentally-friendly printing results.

Marvaco Group is currently operating in Finland, Sweden, and Germany.
