On 28 May 2018, Lahti Precision divested its glass business and sold it to Zippe Industrieanlagen GmbH, a leading German operator. The new owner will continue operating in Finland under the name Lahti Glass Technology. The parties have agreed that Lahti Precision will handle the glass business projects and equipment orders for which it is responsible to finish.
As a result of the change, Lahti Precision will invest in the development of industrial weighing and mortar business. In industrial weighing, the company is a leading supplier of demanding weighing and dosing equipment for the heavy duty processing industry in the Nordic countries. In Finland, the company has a very strong position in industrial weighing and dosing equipment, as well as its maintenance and calibration services.
Lahti Precision aims to further develop its products and services to meet the diverse needs of its customers. The company has recently launched new products for example, mScales weighing service. The service will enable our customers to better utilize modern technology to measure and improve the performance of their processes. In part, this also supports Lahti Precision’s strategy of developing new and innovative service solutions to deliver even greater added value to our customers throughout their product lifecycle. Lahti Precision is an internationally recognized expert and plant supplier in the mortar business. Over the years, we have delivered over a hundred mortars, lightweight concrete and alloy plants mainly to the international market.
In the mortar business, our strong competitiveness is based on our strong tradition of weighing expertise combined with innovative powder and granule dosing and mixing technology. These core competencies form an entity that guarantees our customers significantly lower life-cycle costs during the life of the mortar. This modern, reliable facility contributes to our customers’ success in the internationally competitive building materials market and provides a good basis for new innovations and further development of existing technologies. The technology developed by Lahti Precision makes it possible to utilize raw materials in a cost-effective and environmentally friendly manner. As a result, the company has also been admitted cleantech status by Cleantech Finland.
