The PLUS, named after its shape with four factory wings, was designed by world-renowned architect company Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), which among others designed Google’s headquarters.

Scandinavian Sales Manager, Christian Calundan says: “We were very excited to be selected as conveyor supplier for a project as visionary as this. The PLUS project clearly shows that sustainability and highly efficient manufacturing is combinable, and we expect to see an industry move in this direction in the future”.

Knowing that this is also a very climate-friendly solution makes it is a project you really feel proud to have been a part of!”…
