Alfa Laval creates a Food & Water competence centre outside of Copenhagen

Alfa Laval  announces that the company will transform its existing site in Søborg, northwest of Copenhagen, Denmark, to a Food & Water competence centre, to secure long-term competitiveness.

Alfa Laval’s site in Søborg will over the coming one and half years, shift focus from manufacturing to sales, research & development and engineering & supply. A new testing facility will also be established.

The shift away from manufacturing means that Alfa Laval, by the end of 2017 will have moved the production of its ballast water treatment system – Alfa Laval PureBallast – to the existing facility in Aalborg, Denmark. The production of decanters will move to Alfa Laval’s existing facility in Krakow, Poland – a transfer that is expected to be completed during the fourth quarter 2018. The changes are estimated to affect about 100 employees in Søborg and Alfa Laval will do its utmost to minimize the negative consequences.
