Hexagon to build €90m smart factory

Hexagon has revealed plans to invest approximately €90m in a new 52,000 m2 production facility in Hongdao, China. The new site will primarily produce metrology systems for the MI (Manufacturing Intelligence) division. There will also be office and meeting space, recreational areas for employees and a Hexagon solution centre. Construction is slated to begin this year, with completion targeted for 2020.
“The factories of the future must be flexible, modular working environments with data-driven ecosystems that embed agility and quality into every phase of the production process,” says Hexagon president and CEO Ola Rollén. “Our new facility not only will deliver high-class products and services for our customers in China and the surrounding region, but pioneer new technologies to support smart manufacturing.”
