Ruukki to make panel delivery to new Cadbury-Wedel factory in Poland

Ruukki is to deliver sandwich panels for a new Cadbury-Wedel confectionery factory building in Skarbimierz, southern Poland. Ruukki's project includes project management, delivery, and installation. This project is an example of Ruukki's strategic progress toward more and more project-oriented business and system deliveries.

For the customer, Bovis Land Lease, project-based delivery means less subcontractor work at the constructions site and, at the same time, fewer risks. Also, construction time is shortened remarkably with the use of sandwich panels in walls and ceiling structures. The sandwich panels, 40,000 square metres in total, will be made at Ruukki's plant in Poland, Oborniki. Ruukki will deliver the necessary fastening and seal systems also. Similar solutions from Ruukki have been successfully employed in several comparable construction projects.

"This contract shows that devoting ourselves to construction system development brings benefits for our customers. We are constantly developing our project operations to be able to serve customers locally but with global know-how," says Jouni Metsämäki, SVP, Eastern Europe and CEE, Ruukki Construction.

Sandwich panels are prefabricated elements with two steel sheet layers bonded to an inner insulation core between them. Ready-to-install panels are especially used for industrial and commercial building construction.

The process and warehouse building will have around 45,000 square metres of floor area. Cadbury-Wedel will commission the plant in 2010.
