About Synsam Groups's Production and Innovation Center
As part of the group's sustainability agenda, Synsam Group is relocating the spectacle production from Asia to Frösön outside Östersund. The relocation is an important next step in the group's efforts to contribute to a reduced climate footprint in the form of shorter transports, focus on circular, recycled and locally produced materials and to bring products to market faster. The production and innovation center is being built in the former Jämtland air flotilla Hangar 90 at Frösö Park, and encompasses approximately 8,100 square meters. The Production and Innovation Center will also be a destination for employees, customers and the business community, and will include premises for education in eye health.
