Satcube announces the building of a new facility for mass production of satellite terminals, both for existing product verticals and new ventures for LEO and vehicular applications. The new facility being built in Karlstad, Sweden, will replace Satcube’s current production site. The company anticipates adding up to 25 new employees during the next year in Karlstad.
Harnessing core CSR principles and Satcube’s benchmark manufacturing approach, the new facility will feature automated and semi-automated production founded on Green Lean Digital and Agile processes. Combining these forward-leaning standards with an increased level of production line automation will enable Satcube to quickly scale up manufacturing to accommodate high-volume terminal orders - while simultaneously keeping production costs low, creating a win-win scenario for customers and the company’s long-term strategy.
"Satcube achieved an impressive 140% increase in revenue from 2021 to 2022 and is already serving major NGO’s, media brands, military, and government agencies, confirms Jakob Kallmér, CEO at Satcube. Due to the significantly increased demand for Satcube products, we have nearly reached the maximum production capacity in our existing facilities.”
"With a nearly three-fold increase in production available at our new facility, Satcube will be able to deliver substantial new volumes while tapping a highly automated production line to shorten time between order and delivery, continues Kallmér." "The new, highly agile setup will enable Satcube to both rapidly and seamlessly establish production of new products and deliver on custom orders with specialized requirements.”
The EU and the European Satellite Association alike currently actively support and encourage initiatives to develop strong regional supply chains within the EU as many products are sourced from other parts of the world. Satcube’s already established local production principles are well aligned with supporting a growing regional EU supply chain, tapping local technology, research, development, employment opportunities, and production.
-“When manufacturing complex high-tech products that require expert engineering, it is without a doubt a major advantage to offer close proximity between development and manufacturing departments,” says, Henrik Strandén, COO & Production Manager at Satcube.
-“This hands-on, integral, close approach and focus on teamwork leads to higher quality products and shorter time to market for new products, confirms Strandén. There are far more benefits to having in-house manufacturing, including full control of supply chain stability, waste management, working conditions, and safety standards. Through our strategy, we are able to realize a cost-efficient and reliable supply chain for our customers.”
