Slovakia – Norway’s prime minister Erna Solberg has expressed her admiration for TOMRA Sorting Solutions’ 12 600 m2 state-of-the art manufacturing and distribution facility in Senec, Slovakia. On a recent visit to the plant, she was given a guided tour by TOMRA’s ceo Stefan Ranstrand.
What started as an innovation out of a garage in Asker in 1972 has developed into the TOMRA business of today – ‘a leading provider of sensor-based solutions and a significant contributor towards obtaining, using and reusing valuable resources in an optimal way’.
The Euro 10 million facility, which opened its doors in 2014, is said to incorporate ‘the latest’ building and manufacturing technologies as well as sustainable design techniques which, according to Tomra, are in line with the company’s vision to lead the resource revolution.
The plant employs more than 230 people who together produce around 1200 sorting systems a year based on 30 different machine types.
