Finnish foodservice food and beverage packaging firm Huhtamaki is investing €11 million, or about $12.9 million, in a new manufacturing plant in Hämeenlinna, Finland to replace an aging facility there.

“Today’s busy on-the-go lifestyle increases demand for takeaway foods and drinks. This creates growth opportunities for us, and with the investment we are better able to capture those,” said Maisa Katila, general manager of Huhtamaki Foodservice Nordics, in a statement.

The company plans to upgrade some of its machinery, deploy automated technologies, and improve workplace safety and ergonomics.

“Competitiveness will also be improved by designing the new facility according to Lean manufacturing principles and improving the flow of goods and minimizing unnecessary traffic within production,” the firm said in a press release.

Improving its manufacturing capabilities will help the company to better serve its customers in Nordic and Baltic countries.
