The new FSP paint shop in Raahe will be, measured in surface area, the company’s largest and most modern facility in Finland.

The new paint shop will start its operation in the beginning of June in Raahe, Finland, in hall number one in Kiiluntie.

Earlier, FSP has been operating in the paint shop situated next to the Miilukangas Ky workshop.

“The new premises are much more modern and bigger. The premises and the amount of staff doubled from earlier,” says FSP director sales- and marketing Sanna Parkkonen.

There are three painting chambers in the new paint shop, which makes it possible to conduct surface treatment works on long objects. The total number of square metres in the premises is approximately 1400. Operations are facilitated by the covered storage spaces.


Excellent location

The facilities offer more varied possibilities to serve the area clients and future projects in the Hanhikivi -nuclear power plant project. The excellent location along the road 8 also makes for better serviceability.

“We have been operating in Olkiluoto from the beginning and in Loviisa nuclear power plant from the 1970’s. We possess a strong experience in the nuclear industry, Parkkonen continues.

The new paint shop offers shot blasting and wet painting services for steel structures manufactured by customers. At the turn of May and June SFSP will hold an open day in the new facility.

The lifting capacity in the facility will be 20 tonnes, so FSP can surface treat extremely heavy steel structures. In Raahe, the FSP clientèle also includes, besides Miilukangas, other prominent steel manufacturer, such as SSAB.
