Ensto Building Systemsa manufacturer of smart electrical solutions, has completed a new factory in Keila Industrial Park.
With the new factory, the company will double the total factory area and operate in a production unit of 8,200 square meters.
Harju KEK took care of the completion of the construction, which cost more than three million euros.
According to Nadežda Dementjeva, plant manager of Ensto Building Systems Keila, the company needed more space to implement its growth strategy.
Dementjeva says: “The demand for electrical equipment and solutions has increased significantly. If we compare it to last year, the demand for electric vehicle chargers alone has increased by 35% and it will probably increase even more.
“Over the past year, the number of employees has increased by 50 and we currently need 30 new people. The new factory brings together all of the company’s production units under one roof.
“It creates conditions for production from a development perspective – it’s the start of a new era for us.”
With the new building, the Ensto Building Systems Keila factory now has 8,200 square meters of floor space.
220 people will work there and all of the company’s production units will be concentrated there: the production of charging stations for electric vehicles, smart electric heaters and various electrical accessories.
The newly completed part of the plant will house the expanded production of electric vehicle chargers and component storage.
Dementjeva adds that the share of component warehouses has increased significantly in light of the coronavirus crisis.
Therefore, companies must think long term to anticipate and ensure the necessary stock of components.
According to Janek Lehtmets, Director of Harju KEK, the developments of Ensto Building Systems in Keila are extremely necessary for the local business environment.
Lehtmets says, “The faith and will of these companies confirms that entrepreneurs have good opportunities for development and growth in Keila Industrial Park.
“An attractive business environment and the presence and support of people and labor are essential for large-scale investments.
Currently, more than 100 companies are operating in the 52 hectare area of Keila Industrial Park. The biggest among them are Harju Elekter, Ensto Building Systems, Glamox and Prysmian Group.
