The Rimaster Group invests in Poland

Rimaster, the Swedish contractor of electrical systems, is expanding in Europe. Following extensive investment in its Polish manufacturing units, the Group is ready to meet increased international demand.

Interest in Rimaster’s development and manufacturing services in the areas of electrical systems and control panels is growing rapidly in the European market. This demand is being met by Rimaster with heavy investments in its Polish manufacturing units.

Rimaster’s staff has more than doubled in recent years, and today the Group’s two production facilities – in Czaplinek and Borne Sulinowo – employ more than 600. At the same time, the Borne Sulinowo plant has moved to new excellently equipped premises, doubling its production area – an investment in the vicinity of 15 MSEK.

The investment in Poland is part of Rimaster’s strategy of following its customers globally. Two complete production units and excellent logistics make Rimaster Poland an attractive partner for major players in western, eastern and central Europe.

“The move has resulted in new, efficient and flexible production lines that make it possible to meet customer demand and to create conditions for continued growth,” says Tomas Stålnert, CEO.

“Our long-time customers are experiencing increased demand due to the business boom we find ourselves in. At the same time, Rimaster’s dealings in the European market have begun to make an impact and we now have many new customers who have discovered the benefits of what we have to offer. We believe that the demand for our services and products will continue to increase.

Major Chinese companies choose Rimaster

When leading Chinese business groups decide to expand in their domestic and international markets, they choose a Swedish partner. Rimaster, with its own development and manufacturing facilities in Ningbo, delivers electrical systems to leading local brands.

Sweden’s Rimaster Group established its business in Ningbo, China in 2008 with the aim of being able to offer manufacturing and business opportunities in the Chinese market for its European customers. Today, Rimaster Ningbo is well established and has become an attractive partner for Chinese clients, as well.

“Our domestic market is growing rapidly and we are now entering into relationships with some of China’s largest business groups and brands, including SANY, a well-known global organisation that manufactures lifting cranes and excavators,” says Yong Shen, Rimaster Ningbo’s CEO.

“Rimaster has a very good reputation in China. We are known for our customer focus, our excellent quality and high level of performance. Our Swedish connection is seen as a strength, and the fact that we have our own organisation and manufacturing here in Ningbo is a door opener into the Chinese market.”

In order to facilitate growth, Rimaster Ningbo has invested in new office and production facilities in the same area as previously, ZhenHai Economic Development Zone. The move was carried out recently, and means increased flexibility with more production lines and machinery as well as a successive increase in the number of its employees.

With development and production in Europe, Rimaster also has opportunities of following its Chinese customers in the international market.

“Irrespective of their home market, all of Rimaster’s customers stand to benefit from our local knowledge, service and manufacturing facilities in a global context.”
