The 3Shape production facility in Poland has had the hammers and paintbrushes working overtime to make room for new employees and to meet production demands.
“We are very excited to provide our Poland team with more space where they can continue to grow and build outstanding products for our customers,” says Mikael Toxværd Petersen, vice president of supply chain, 3Shape.
The expanded production facility will now occupy 5000sqm of office space in Szczecin, Poland.
Over the past few months, the Poland staff has grown to over 180 employees. Staff growth was due to the steep rise in global demand for 3Shape products and services. Sales are being driven chiefly by the TRIOS 3 intraoral scanner and the 2015 line of lab scanners.
“The production facility expansion will allow us to keep growing our production and support for our global customers. The Poland team has done a terrific job in developing the necessary production infrastructure and staffing up to meet the demand,” says 3Shape CEO Flemming Thorup.
3Shape opened its production facility in Poland in 2009 and moved to its present location in 2012. Company headquarters are in Copenhagen, Denmark.
