Ensto Building Systems, a manufacturer of smart electrical solutions, has completed a new factory in Keila Industrial Park.
With the new factory, the company will double the entire factory area and will be operating in a production unit of 8,200 square meters.
Harju KEK took care of the completion of the construction, which cost more than three million euros.
According to Nadežda Dementjeva, head of the Ensto Building Systems Keila factory, the company needed more space to implement its growth strategy.
Dementjeva says: “Demand for electrical equipment and solutions has grown significantly. If we compare it with last year, the demand for electric vehicle chargers alone has grown by 35 percent and it will probably grow even more.
“Over the past year, the number of employees has increased by 50 and we currently need 30 new people. The new factory allows all the company’s production units to be brought together under one roof.
“It creates production conditions with a development perspective – this is the beginning of a new era for us.”
Together with the new building, Ensto Building Systems Keila factory now has 8,200 square meters of floor space.
There will be 220 people working there and all of the company’s production units will be concentrated there: the production of electric vehicle charging stations, smart electric heaters, and various electrical accessories.
The newly completed part of the factory will house the expanded production of electric vehicle chargers and the storage of components.
Dementjeva adds that the share of component warehouses has increased significantly in the light of the coronavirus crisis.
Therefore, companies need to think long-term to anticipate and ensure the necessary stock of components.
According to Janek Lehtmets, the head of Harju KEK, the developments of Ensto Building Systems in Keila are extremely necessary for the local business environment.
Lehtmets says: “The faith and willingness of such companies confirms that entrepreneurs have good opportunities to develop and grow in Keila Industrial Park.
“An attractive business environment as well as the presence and support of the population and workforce are essential for large-scale investments.”
Currently 100+ companies operate in the 52-hectare area of Keila Industrial Park. The largest of them are Harju Elekter, Ensto Building Systems, Glamox, and Prysmian Group.
