Fruitful cooperation with Valio Oy

Founded in 1905, Valio is a Finnish dairy and food producer. Thanks to a long-term partnership, the RE Group has been able to carry out a number of design projects spanning the range of design sectors we cover, at sites throughout Finland. The most recent large project we worked on was the Lapinlahti L4 powdered product factory. In addition to the larger projects, when it comes to design we also have a number of ongoing smaller investments and maintenance projects with Valio.

‘We have been working with the RE Group ever since the company’s founding, with great success. Over the decades a high level of trust has been developed in the work we do together, and we know we can rely on the RE Group to design the solutions that will work best for us.
The RE Group has been expanding and developing its expertise systematically since the 90s, and it’s wonderful to see the emphasis the company places on better utilisation of data. Over the years, a range of different systems, forms of modelling and 4D design methods have come to play an ever-greater role. This modern approach of making constant progress comes naturally to the RE Group too, making the planning process seamless.
More often than not, project timetables are tight and there’s a degree of urgency. It sometimes feels as if there’s a need to get projects off the ground before even knowing what we’re really doing. By providing good raw data, however, we can be sure that the planning work at the RE Group will get off to a smooth start. I personally feel that an experienced lead designer is worth their weight in gold: they are capable of coming up with suitable and well-functioning solutions, which is extremely important.’
