Steel-based construction products & services for sustainable buildings provider Ruukki Construction has celebrated the inauguration of a new sandwich panel production line in Oborniki in Poland. The investment of approximately EUR 5 million supports Ruukki’s growth strategy by further improving plant safety and productivity as well as enhancing the technical properties of the manufactured products. Customer deliveries from the new production line will begin in the third quarter of 2022. The new production line in Oborniki complements the company's current offering of wall and roof structures by enabling the provision of more advanced mineral wool sandwich panels, especially for customers operating in Poland, Central Eastern Europe and the Baltics. Ruukki’s Oborniki plant is located some 40 kilometers from Poznan and employs roughly 200 people. The plant produces sandwich panels that are used in the external and internal walls and ceilings of warehouses, logistics centers, production plants, offices and shopping centres. Sandwich panels with either a mineral wool or PIR (polyisocyanurate) core ensure a durable, airtight and energy-efficient envelope for all types of buildings. In addition to Oborniki, Ruukki produces sandwich panels in Alajärvi in Finland. The project has been co-financed by the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund as a part of Smart Growth Operational Program 2014-2020.
