On Friday, October 4th, representatives from ScandiNova, the municipality, Reimnor Holding AB and the local media gathered to mark the construction start of the brand new ScandiNova office and plant site in Uppsala.

In september 2020, ScandiNova Systems will reach another important company milestone. If everything goes as planned, ScandiNova’s new combined HQ office and production site in Uppsala Science Park, Fyrislund, will be ready for occupancy.

The new facilities, measuring a total of 4000 m2,, will contain two buildings with modern office premises and a factory for production of the company’s market-leading solid state products, such as modulators for cancer treatment, X-ray of goods and scientific research. The new plant is a very important piece in the company’s future expansion.

“It feels incredible to be under way! There is a lot of positive energy, questions and desire for the move inhouse. The fact that the building permit was handled so quickly is very gratifying. We have a very good collaboration with the municipality”, says Andreas Wallner, COO, ScandiNova Systems.

The first ground has been broken

The first ground was broken by Erik Pelling, Chairman of the Municipal Council in Uppsala, Bo Falk, partner at Reimnor Holding AB and Fredrik Mella, CEO of ScandiNova Systems AB. Uppsala’s leading newspaper, Upsala Nya Tidning (UNT), covered the historic moment.

The problem for us as a company right now is that we are too crowded. This is a necessary investment. Within three to five years, the plan is to double the number of employees from 75 to 150 and multiply our revenue. Last year we had a total revenue of 175 million SEK”, Fredrik Mella, CEO of ScandiNova, told reporters.

Responsible builder is Reimnor BTJ AB, a subsidiary of the Reimnor Group, which owns and builds industrial houses in Uppsala.
