Has expanded and centralised production at new facility in Kausala

Halton, a family-owned company specialising in indoor climate solutions, has announced opening new air filter factory in Kausala, Finland, on September 2. Till now, Halton had manufactured its air filtration products in Orimattila, Finland, as well as in Hungary, but now the entire filter production has been centralised in the new facility, located next to Halton’s existing manufacturing units, and will employ 300 people, the announcement revealed.

According to Halton, the new facility has been named O-factory after Orimattila, as a reminder of the importance of the Orimattila production to Halton’s air filtration expertise.

About the move to centralise its air filter production, Tarja Takki, the Managing Director of Halton Oy, said: “One of Kausala’s strengths is logistics, so the transfer was the best alternative from the business point of view in general. The expansion of manufacturing in Kausala will also bring us synergy benefits. In addition, it will improve the efficiency of manufacturing, and will create broader career opportunities for our personnel.”

Hannu Hokkanen, Production Manager at Halton Oy, Kausala, added, “For the moment, Finland is our biggest market, but we’re excepting growth abroad as well.
