Peikko Group’s parent company Peikko Finland Oy has established a new
legal entity, Peikko CEE s.r.o. (CEE = Central Eastern Europe), in
Kralova nad Vahom, Slovakia. The focus of this unit is the sales and
engineering services in the area of Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria
and in the countries of former Yugoslavia.
The new sales and engineering unit is separate from Peikko’s
other activities in Slovakia and employs own sales and engineering
personnel located in Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia and Romania. The local
Peikko personnel are able to provide local service and are experts on
the local building requirements.
“The construction activity in the area is growing rapidly and
factors such as shortage of labor, required speed of the construction
and the need for improved quality support strongly the launch of
Peikko’s products in the area. Our Slovakian factory is also very much
capable to meet the required price-level and speed of deliveries”,
comments Raimo Lehtinen, Managing Director of Peikko Group.
The Deltabeam factory investment announced earlier this year
is on schedule and the estimated production ramp-up is during Q1/2008.
Currently Peikko Group employs over 100 persons in Slovakia in the
functions of production & engineering services.
