Planmeca honours its 40th anniversary by enlarging its premises

New premises and facilities Celebrations and milestones

The Finnish dental equipment manufacturer Planmeca Oy has enlarged its premises in Helsinki, Finland. After completing the new 118,000 square feet annex building, the company owns and occupies a total of 475,000 square feet of production and office space.


The new facilities are located within walking distance from Planmeca's headquarters.

Planmeca's product lines - dental care units, dental x-ray units and advanced imaging software - are known for their user-orientated and functional design, as well as latest technology, uncompromised hygiene and advanced usability. The company has been awarded several product design awards in international design competitions.

During the past 40 years, Planmeca has grown into one of the leading companies in the dental field. Its ground-breaking innovations stem on one side from close relationships with leading universities and have lead to major advances in dentistry. Basing its innovations on the other side on solid cooperation with the users and understanding details of their work-flow, the company has created several revolutionary concepts.

The new facility contains both offices and production facilities. As in its products, the company utilises the newest technology in its production. The technologically advanced machining as well as the new powder painting department will be located in the new building. In addition, the ground level warehouse is all-automated with two robotic forklifts handling the logistics.

"With these new production premises, we can more effectively respond to increased demand," said Mr Heikki Kyostila, president of Planmeca Oy.

The Planmeca subsidiary Planmed that manufactures medical imaging equipment for mammography and orthopaedic diagnostics will also move its offices and production into the new building.
