DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., Jan. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- SWEP, part of Dover (NYSE: DOV), announced plant expansions for Landskrona, Sweden and Kosice, Slovakia, in order to meet increasing market demand and drive continued growth.
"Renewable energy sources and more efficient energy use are absolute musts.

By expanding our production in EMEA through additional capacity equipment, such as press lines, furnaces and automation, we will significantly increase our abilities to serve the market. We are here to grow with our customers.
