Expo-Net invests in new low carbon warehouse in Denmark

Expo-Net Danmark A/S is investing in a new, state-of-the-art low carbon central warehouse at the company’s main production site in Hjørring, Denmark.

The new centralized warehouse will provide 3,300 sq m of covered storage for raw materials and finished goods, all under one roof. Ground preparation for construction has already begun, with the new warehouse scheduled to be operational later this year.

Expo-Net has been developing and manufacturing thermoplastic netting, mesh and filtration products since 1959. The product range, sold globally, is manufactured from 100% recyclable polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) polymer grades. Expo-Net’s products are used in a variety of applications, such as processing aid resin flow meshes for vacuum infusing wind generator rotor blades and other large FRP composite parts, and for protection and filtering in finished products used a wide variety of industrial, commercial and consumer market sectors including gas/liquid filters; telecoms; biogas; food packaging; HVAC systems; building and construction; sewage and effluent wastewater treatment; aquaculture fish farming.

The new central warehouse will improve materials handling and overall site efficiency, while making space available in the production area currently being used for storage.

Expo-Ner’s managing director Lars Klinkby said: “We are planning to use the freed up space to increase Expo-Net’s lean production capabilities by relocating a number of our existing extrusion lines and upgrading older lines. This will further improve our production efficiency and prepare the business for future expansion.”

The new warehouse will further reduce the Hjørring site’s carbon footprint with less movement of materials around the site. The new building is also being designed and specified to be a highly energy efficient low carbon facility.
