As a result of an ever-increasing demand for water treatment products, Hydria Water has identified a need to invest in and consolidate its brands. At the moment, production is being moved to and concentrated in the Viared industrial and logistics hub in Borås, Sweden.
Through its brands Mellegård & Naij and VA Teknik Sweden, Hydria Water has previously undertaken production work in both Viared and Skövde, Sweden. As Mellegård & Naij has outgrown its facilities in Skövde, production will be moved to Borås in order to consolidate the company’s supply chain and production facilities in one place.
– This allows us to be more flexible in our production and allocate our resources based on the requirements of our different product ranges. We see that demand for our products has increased strongly in both Sweden and internationally, and that we need to concentrate our efforts and focus on one place in order to ensure faster deliveries, CEO Robert Bjursten says.
The move will commence in April and conclude in September of this year. Some of the staff will relocate to Borås, and at the same time a new competence centre consisting of salespeople, sales support, and engineers will be created in Skövde. In total, 10–15 new jobs will be created in Borås.
– Our facilities in Borås are spacious, well-equipped, and perfectly placed to make the most of our logistics and transportation network. This is part of the largest investment in the history of Hydria Water, and part of our overall effort to build our brand, Robert Bjursten says.
Ellen Gremo, the newly appointed Marketing Manager at Hydria Water, provided further details on the plans:
– This is the beginning of our large-scale brand work that will be carried out during the autumn.
