Serres to strengthen manufacturing in Finland; opens a new production line at its Saarijärvi facility, creating opportunities for growth and expansion

Serres, the progressive leader in smart fluid management solutions around suction, today announced the inauguration of a new production line at its Saarijärvi site in Finland for the manufacture of the Serres Suction Bags used in healthcare for fluid medical waste collection. The new production line will enable a significant 25 percent increase in the plant’s production capacity. 

The extension of the production capacity enables Serres’ growth and expansion to new markets and is in line with the company’s global growth strategy. Serres is the leading manufacturer of suction bag systems in Europe, supplying smart fluid management solutions worldwide to more than 50 countries through its extensive distributor network

”Manufacturing disposable suction liners in high volumes is our core competence and the foundation of our competitiveness. This new extension ensures we can meet increasing demand from our clients across the world. Our existing clients will continue to receive the high quality and fast delivery Serres is known for, and we ensure we can offer that same standard also to clients in new market areas”, says Pertti Salonen, chief operating officer, Serres Oy.

"The quality standards and regulation pose great demands when it comes to manufacturing suction bags. That sets the bar high also for our personnel, yet time and again they show their high level of expertise and commitment. Our workers are what makes Serres' stability and growth possible; that's why it is of paramount importance for us to support everyone's job satisfaction and professional development."

The development, design, manufacture and implementation of the new production line is a demanding project that showcases Finnish expertise.

”When it comes to technology development, design and execution, Finland has a high level of expertise and co-operation runs smoothly here. Therefore, it was a natural choice for us to work together with domestic partners on this one. Our automation and integration partner is also a Finnish company.”

The assembly of the new production line began at Saarijärvi in April; the line will be in full production capacity in August. It is built making use of existing facilities and will not require extensions to the building itself.
