and logistics construction in Sweden. We have numerous showcases of retail
single-storey construction from the past few years, where we have been able to
offer customers energy-efficient envelope and frame building solutions.
Likewise, we also have a strong foothold in logistics construction, an example
of which is Sweden Post's new sorting centre completed this year at Hallsberg in
Central Sweden," says Sami Eronen, SVP, Building Projects at Ruukki
The structures for the Uddevalla project will be manufactured at Ruukki's plant
in Gargzdai in Lithuania and those for the Upplands Väsby project will be
manufactured jointly by Ruukki's plants in Gargzdai, Lithuania and Seinäjoki,
Finland. Deliveries and installation for the Ikano building will be made by the
