Norwegian prime minister Erna Solberg will perform the official opening of PTG’s new production facilities at Malmefjorden in Hustadvika local authority at 10.30–11.00 on Wednesday 10 February. She will take part virtually.
The opening ceremony will be conducted over the internet, but is also open to a restricted number of media representatives who wish to be present physically.
PTG decided in the autumn of 2019 to expand the Malmefjorden factory at a cost of more than NOK 20 million. That investment has now been completed, and the company will be following up this commitment over the coming year with further spending on ultramodern equipment.
Sustainable Norwegian production
The facility in Malmefjorden accounts for a large part of the PTG group’s production. CEO Terje Arnesen says the investment in production premises and high-tech equipment will substantially increase capacity and efficiency. “With production Norway and a nationwide service and expertise network, we meet our customers needs for quality and for delivery precision,” he says. “As Norway’s leading centre of expertise with refrigeration technology, we have a definite focus on helping to reduce energy consumption and improve the climate, enhance food quality and reduce shrinkage – locally and globally.”
