Preparatory works for the construction of the Teltonika High-Tech Hill technology park in Liepkalnis, Vilnius, have already started. On this occasion, the mayor of Vilnius, Remigijus Šimašius, visited Teltonika last week. During the visit, we gave the guests a tour of our factory and presented our investment projects.

In the next ten years, we plan to implement 14 high-value projects in Lithuania, which will require 3.7 billion euros of investments. Eleven of those projects will be situated in the Liepkalnis microdistrict in Vilnius. During the first phase, from 2022 to 2025, we will implement four projects, which will require 420 million euros. These projects will create 3 050 jobs.

How will the local infrastructure change?

The Teltonika High-Tech Hill complex in Liepkalnis will create 5 500 jobs in total. To manage this large flow of people, certain decisions from the city council will be necessary.

The mayor of Vilnius states that our choice of Liepkalnis is in line with the city’s strategic development plans.

“Our city needs this kind of investment if we want Lithuania to compete on an international level successfully. Vilnius is a perfect place for this because of its talented people, the business-friendly approach, and the opportunities and strategy for expansion to the south of the city. The Žirnių-Liepkalnis viaduct, which is necessary for such projects, has already been completed and is fulfilling its function. However, the transport infrastructure in this part of the city will be complemented by the southern bypass project, which is due to be completed in the coming years. The reconstruction of Liepkalnis street is also planned for the near future,” said Remigijus Šimašius.

Electronics assembly plant and office complex

In 2023, Teltonika’s new 24 000 m2 electronics assembly plant with 12 production lines will emerge on Ditvos street. It will require an investment of 75 million euros and provide 700 jobs for qualified specialists, who will assemble and produce telematics, networking, tracking, telemedicine and other devices.

The president of the company group, Arvydas Paukštys, shared the projected production results: “By adding 12 new production lines to the existing 6 in the current factory and 6 lines in the upcoming Teltonika Technology Centre in Molėtai, we will have 24 production lines in total in Lithuania. It will enable us to manufacture 40 million IoT and electronics devices every year.”

In 2025, the majority of our employees in Lithuania will relocate to the 64 000 m2 Teltonika High-Tech Hill office complex, which will require 220 million euros of investment. The goal of this complex is to create the best environment for specialists to grow and give them the comfort of home at work. 

In addition to workspaces, the complex will include various leisure and recreational areas such as relaxation rooms, massage rooms, a gym, a cafeteria with kitchenettes, a hall for events and conferences, and a rooftop amphitheatre for watching planes take off and land at the Vilnius airport. 

The complex will be surrounded by courtyards, representing different aspects of Lithuanian nature – meadow, forest, lake, garden, and park. There will be walking paths, picnic areas, a conservatory, a pond with a beach, and a basketball court.

Teltonika’s kindergarten and school

As we strive to stimulate creativity and comprehension of technologies from an early age, we have started feasibility studies for the establishment of a technological kindergarten and school (from 1st to 12th grade) in Liepkalnis. We seek to implement these projects for 35 million euros until 2026.

The 5 000 m2 kindergarten, which will accommodate around 300 children, could help address the lack of kindergartens in the capital and lay the foundations for developing creativity in children. The 10 000 m2 school for technological sciences could be located nearby. Around 900 children from the nearest neighbourhoods could study here. This school would provide additional training in engineering, programming, and other subjects.

Teltonika’s IoT and B2B academies will also be located in Liepkalnis. The academies will help students acquire practical experience in different fields: engineering, programming, product design, product testing, marketing, sales, and others. Our specialists will their knowledge with students and guide them.

Among planned investments – two specialised factories

By 2024, we plan to build a plastic parts manufacturing facility and a printed circuit board factory. These factories will create 350 jobs. 

In the 10 000 m2 plastic parts manufacturing facility, which will cost us 20 million euros, we will develop new technologies for multi-complex injection moulding of plastics and other materials. And the fully automated 25 000 m2 printed circuit board factory, requiring 100 million euros, will enable us to become independent of third-party component supply.

The semiconductor industry may be established in Liepkalnis

In the next ten years, Teltonika also plans to establish a semiconductor industry in Lithuania.

According to the president of the company group, Arvydas Paukštys, Teltonika plans to build semiconductor chip development laboratories, a data centre, a semiconductor chip assembly plant, and a semiconductor chip factory in Liepkalnis. “These four projects will create an additional 2 200 jobs for highly skilled specialists and require 3.1 billion euros. We seek to complete the construction of the semiconductor chip development laboratories and the data centre by 2026, the semiconductor chip assembly plant by 2028, and the chip factory by 2030,” said A. Paukštys.

By 2030, more than 5 000 highly skilled employees creating the highest technologies will work in the 30-hectare Teltonika High-Tech Hill technology park.
