DEVELOPMENT OF PRODUCT CONCEPTS
VP metal is a member of the TotAl group and thus part of the industrial cluster around Mjøsa. We have great opportunities to participate in the development of products and product concepts.
The companies in the network have different expertise and equipment that we can utilize through collaboration to create new and innovative product solutions.
Development of aluminum power line posts.
In an article in Business Inland 2017 we say, among other things: “It is a strength that the companies in the network complement each other. We must exploit the good cooperation in the network and adapt products to the customers. In the network in general, we focus on developing our own products and product concepts that can provide greater value creation than just being a subcontractor with squeezed margins. ”
A current project now is the development of aluminum power line posts developed by Lena Metall AS where VP metal has been central to the development of accessories for aluminum posts such as climbing shoes, fall protection, line hangings and peg mounts.
