Visually appealing from the outside and technologically highly sophisticated inside, this building is designed for the production of high technology products of a special complexity for European and USA markets. Skonto Būve performed the construction upon the request of the Ventspils Free Port Authority.

At the opening of the plant, Aivars Lembergs, Chairman of the Board of Ventspils Free Port Authority and Ventspils City Council, announced that industrialisation in Ventspils is booming: “On the eve of last year we opened the “Malmar Sheet Metal” machine building plant and the “Ventspils Welding Plant”; less than a month ago we opened the “Heimdal Skonto Latvija” production unit of module houses and now the liquid crystal plant. They each represent a different industry, but demonstrate a united course of development.”

Ilmārs Osmanis, Member of the Board of “EUROLCDS” emphasised that “this is like a Silicon Valley company associated with great risk, but success is only possible if you are prepared to do what others aren’t.”

Guntis Rāvis, Chairman of the Board of Skonto Būve stated that it is particularly rewarding to build plants and expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to promote the development of manufacturing and in particular the development of high technologies in Ventspils. The biggest challenge in the construction of the EUROLCDS plant was the “cleanroom” with a 1800 m2 area built in compliance with ISO class 6, 7 and 8 standards, which is the biggest “cleanroom” in Latvia for the production of electronics.
