Eleiko expands with the completion of a new 18,000 sqm logistics centre

With the completion of its new logistics centre, Eleiko, the industry leader in precision-crafted strength equipment, moves forward with its initiatives to optimise service and the customer experience and support its long-term strategy for continued growth.

“Increased in-house production capacity and more optimised logistics are central to our growth and our aim to deliver best-in-class strength products and service. The expansion into this new facility is an important development for Eleiko, allowing us to meet our customers’ needs better — now and in the future. Investing in ways that align with our sustainability work and mission to build a stronger world is particularly gratifying,” said Erik Blomberg, CEO at Eleiko.

Eleiko’s new logistics centre is a modern, environmentally certified building adjacent to the company’s current headquarters, manufacturing, and warehouse facilities in Halmstad, Sweden. The expanded facility supports Eleiko’s strategic priorities to continually raise service levels, increase production capacity and lower lead times. This expansion doubles the company’s current production area and allows for increased in-house production, one initiative central to Eleiko’s sustainability work. The Eleiko complex, which combines the existing HQ offices, manufacturing, and new logistics centre, will house more than 100 employees, half of Eleiko’s global workforce.

The logistics centre is an important milestone in Eleiko’s extensive sustainability work. Eleiko’s new facility is certified Silver by Sweden Green Building Council. The Eleiko Logistics Centre is the first warehouse in the region to receive this designation. The certification verifies that Eleiko designed, constructed, and will operate the building sustainably.

Eleiko continued global expansion

Eleiko continues to grow globally. In 2021, Eleiko moved its US headquarters from Chicago to Austin, creating a logistics hub for North America. The Austin headquarters triples Eleiko’s current warehouse capacity and houses a modern logistics centre for faster order processing, greater delivery flexibility and quality control, offices, a warehouse, and a world-class sports centre.
