The investment will total approximately SEK 100 million. The new facility, which will be completed by mid-2003, will produce overhead doors for all European markets.

The doors are mainly marketed under the brand names Crawford, Normstahl and Henderson. Cardo Door is a business area in the Cardo group and one of Europe's largest manufacturers of residential garage doors. Door is also one of the world's largest manufacturers of industrial doors, Europe's leading supplier of dock loading equipment and the market leader in the service of these products.
