Copenhagen - The 3Shape production facility in Poland has had the hammers and paint brushes working overtime to make room for new employees and to meet production demands.
“We are very excited to provide the team in Poland with more space where they can continue to grow and build outstanding products for our customers,” says Mikael Toxværd Petersen, vice-president of supply chain, 3Shape.
The expanded production facility will now occupy 5000 m² of office space in Szczecin, Poland.
Over the past few months the staff in Poland has grown to more than 180 employees. The majority of growth in staff is in response to a steep rise in global demand for 3Shape products and services. Sales are being driven chiefly by the TRIOS 3 intraoral scanner and the 2015 line of laboratory scanners.
“The expansion in the production facility will allow us to keep growing our production and support for our global customers. The team in Poland has done a terrific job in developing the necessary production infrastructure and staffing up to meet the demand,” says 3Shape CEO, Flemming Thorup.
3Shape opened its production facility in Poland in 2009 and moved to its present location in 2012. Company headquarters are in Copenhagen, Denmark.
