AB ITAB Novena, a Swedish producer of equipment for shops, will build a new 10,000-square-metre factory close to its current plant in Kaunas. Construction of the new facility, which will receive LTL 10 million (EUR 2.9 million) of investment, will begin next summer, Invest Lithuania said.

The board of ITAB Shop Concept has just approved the decision to expand ITAB Novena in Kaunas, and also decided to relocate some production operations from other plants the group runs to the new factory in Kaunas.

ITAB Novena currently manufactures shelving units, wire products and custom-made fittings, along with assembling rack systems, in its current 4,000 square metres production facilities. The firm also owns 2,000 square metres of warehousing facilities in Kaunas.

According to the approved development plan, the building will be constructed next to the current factory. The new facility will be used to produce racks of rolled metal. Furthermore, a production line for shelves will be relocated from the group's factory in Sweden to the new plant in Kaunas.

The Swedish branch is focusing on the production of cash-register desks, so relocating the shelving production line to the Kaunas branch will enhance production capacity.
