Research & Development (R&D)
From intelligent hardware products to software and digital systems and applications, our in-house research and development organisation is responsible for the design and engineering of logistic solutions.
Our ambition is to create best-in-class customer experiences and seamlessly integrate digital and mechanical solutions, exploiting cutting-edge technologies. As the European Design Centre of Mitsubishi Logisnext Group, we are responsible for the independent development of an extensive portfolio of product and solution concepts that can be used globally.
Continuous innovation, user-friendly design and a customer-driven approach form the basis of our operations and products that have gained prestigious awards and are widely recognised around the world.
Our manufacturing, sourcing and logistics operations are responsible for bringing the developed solutions alive and ready for our customers.
At MLE Oy, we know the importance of safety and efficiency within our manufacturing operations. We prioritise security and wellbeing without compromising on productivity, and we actively coordinate with our sister plants in Spain, Sweden and outside Europe.
Whilst our supplier base is spread globally, it’s centrally managed and developed by our sourcing organisation. We actively cultivate new ways of working and integrate new digital tools and intelligent applications into our standard processes with an intention to implement leading supply chain operations.
Production digitalisation combined with a strong lean manufacturing philosophy forms the foundation of our continuous development programme which draws from Smart Factory and industry 4.0 concepts. By combining lean culture and digital tools, we are on the prosperous path to attaining tangible improvements in production lead times, capacity utilisation, flexibility in working and ever-enhanced quality management.
