Trelleborg has, through its business area Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, invested in a new production facility for sealing solutions in Denmark, relocating its current manufacturing facility in the country.

"The Danish operation is one of our most important ones globally, with committed employees and a product and material portfolio that offers high-end solutions to the most demanding of sealing applications," said Trelleborg Sealing Solutions business area president,  Claus Barsøe.

"The new production facility will be dedicated to highly automated and lean production lines for the automotive, aerospace and renewable energy industries, contributing to better business and higher technical customer support."

The production will be relocated to a new facility close to the current site in Helsingør, Denmark. Trelleborg will invest around SEK120m (US$14.7m) during 2017-2020.

The investment for this year is within the previously announced framework for capital expenditures for 2017.

It is estimated production will be able to start in the new facility at the beginning of 2020.
