Alleima Expands Its Production Capacity for The Industrial Heating Segment

Alleima is increasing its capacity for electrical heating solutions in the Kanthal division, through an investment of approximately SEK 100 million in a new facility in Sakura, Japan.

The expansion will increase production capacity of electrical heating solutions to the Industrial Heating segment in Japan by approximately 60%, with ramp up starting in 2025.

The global growth in lithium-ion batteries and semiconductors is a driver for an increased demand for Kanthal’s solutions for the Industrial Heating segment. In addition, a broad range of industries, such as steel and automotive, are looking to convert heating processes from fossil fuel to electric solutions, making the production more energy efficient whilst also lowering CO2 emissions. The aim is to capture mid- and long-term market growth in Asia.
