The 20,000 square metres of new, imposing premises almost seem to materialise from the natural surroundings of the Finnish city of Seinäjoki. Nature has also heavily influenced the entire building in terms of its construction. Solar cells and solar panels, together with an efficient heat recycling system, make the building self-sufficient as far as energy is concerned.
The year 2019. Nine robots are at work on an automated production line. They’re picking up and assembling seven different components. The end result is a mount for Thule’s roof racks. It takes the robots five seconds to complete the task, but it took Hillerstorps Specialmaskiner (HSM) much longer to create the automation solution. Join us on an exciting trip back in time that begins in 1959.
