Case Study: Hi-tech Production Line Relocation

We relocated a high technology production line to a new facility for the world’s leading independent supplier of industrial inkjet print heads, Xaar. Moving the equipment from Jarfalla, Sweden to Cambridge, England, we minimised production downtime while guaranteeing the protection of high-value assets.

Speaking about the relocation, Rod Perks, Xaar’s relocation project manager, said: “IES has proven to be an excellent choice of business partner and provided Xaar with the required comfort and credibility required on this important relocation project.”
