Denmark’s Primo will inaugurate a state-of-the-art technology and innovation center on Sept. 7 at its factory in southwest Denmark. It will serve as the plastic profile extrusion company’s hub for material development, sustainability, and production technologies within extrusion, digitalization, and automation.

By establishing the center, Primo said it is demonstrating its commitment to being a leader in its core business of plastic profile extrusion and taking a proactive approach to extrusion and materials science.

In keeping with the Copenhagen-based company’s environmental and climate program, the center will be equipped with specialized production lines dedicated to development and testing. Also, the in-house tooling department has been upgraded and automated. "Our goal is to optimize processes and production technologies while at the same time contributing to the green transition together with our customers,” said Chief Technology Officer Allan Larsen.

The center will have three core areas of focus: Developing smarter production and processing technologies, improving precision and innovation in tooling and design, and furthering material research to lessen its environmental impact.

Founded in 1959, the family-owned company specializes in the design and production of customer-specific plastic profiles and has sales and production activities at 11 locations in Europe and China.
