We are excited to announce Stellana Sweden will be adding capacity to its Laxå facility. During the fourth quarter of 2019, this location will install a new 4K-casting machine to streamline MDI production. The new manufacturing line will expand the production of the wheels and rollers that are critical to the material handling industry.
Erik Unnersjö, Sales and Marketing Director at Stellana Sweden, commented, "The new line will increase our capacity for MDI materials. These include our Powerthane, Powerfriction, and Powerthane Plus materials - which range in hardness from 65 to 95 Shore A. The increased capacity will also result in shorter lead times and improved customer service.”
The investment will support growth across Stellana's existing customer base while increasing its in-house manufacturing capabilities. An expanded manufacturing footprint will also allow Sweden's technical team to continue developing existing and new materials.
This facility has an experienced, well-trained staff that continues to build a reputation for manufacturing quality products. As we continue investing in our customer's growth, we look forward to producing more of the premium polyurethane products Stellana is known for. Contact us today to get your future orders scheduled!

Our Task – Vulkollan Scarcity The material handling industry has continued to face a shortage of Vulkollan wheels and rollers. What is Vulkollan®*?
