Peikko Group increases Deltabeam production capacity in Finland. The target is to increase the capacity by 50 beams a week, which means almost 30 percent capacity increase at the Lahti plant. The investment comprises many new machines and equipment. If sales will increase as expected the investment will also result in 10 new jobs at the Lahti plant during spring 2013.
Cause for the investment is the significant over 30 percent increase in Deltabeam sales in the Nordic Countries. The markets value Peikko’s fast service ability and the benefits of composite beams in the building process as well as during the building’s life-cycle. The investment is backed up by Peikko’s investment in August in new production premises in Kaunas, Lithuania: the competitive added composite column production volume will also boost Deltabeam sales.
“Our Deltabeam and composite structure concept is successful. We have an efficient plant in Finland close to our customers. We take care of the plant’s capacity and productivity – now and in the future”, summarizes Topi Paananen, CEO of Peikko Group Corporation.

Deltabeam is Peikko’s composite slim-floor system for multi-storey buildings of any kind. It allows flexibility for layout changes throughout the entire life-cycle of the building and enables easy HVAC installations. With the use of Deltabeam the depth of the whole structure can be reduced, which means savings in construction time and costs as well as in heating and cooling costs. Deltabeam forms together with Peikko’s composite columns a cost-efficient composite frame structure. Peikko produces Deltbeams in Finland and Slovakia.
