In 1996, BODESA UAB was incorporated and started its activities. More active development was started in 1998, when a production workshop of 80 m2 was established at Spindulio St., Šiauliai.
In 2000, as the needs of customers and the number of orders increased, larger premises were purchased, namely 280 m2 for production and 70 m2 for administration. The first sales showroom of windows and doors was opened at Pramonės St. 15, Šiauliai.
In 2002, the production facilities increased up to 600 m2. Premises were purchased in Kuršėnai and a showroom for windows and doors was established.
In 2006, the production of BODESA UAB moved again to new premises with the area of 2700 m2 at J. Basanavičiaus St. 166 in Šiauliai. The old equipment was moved to new premises and the new equipment was installed: two LISEC lines for the assembly of glass units, a computerised, fully automatic HEGLA glass carving table, thanks to which any risk of the “human factor” is reduced, and the workers only control the glass-carving process.
In 2007, the production of modern balcony glazing systems was started (newly equipped premises). In the same year, a construction department specializing in building renovation was established.
In 2008, a new, fully automated computer system LISEC for the production of glass units was acquired, and a new LISEC production process optimisation and management program was installed.
In 2012, aiming to use the latest and most advanced technologies and to remain one of the leaders in the production of glass units, the company implemented an investment project for production modernization. An automatic glass unit production line (LiSEC) and one of the most modern frame folding machines in the world were purchased. The project was partially funded by the EU structural support funds while implementing the JEREMIE initiative under the Economic Growth Operational Program.
In 2014, the company built a new building with a warehouse in its territory, to which the PVC products division moved. Thanks to some additional space in the existing production premises, the equipment was purchased that allowed the production of glass units for frameless facade glazing (structural glass units).
In 2015, BODESA UAB invested in a laminated glass engraving equipment. A semi-automatic Botter laminated glass engraving machine with glass storage equipment was purchased. The acquired equipment increased the capacity of BODESA UAB in the production of glass units with safety glass, expanded the range of glass units, reduced the "human factor" in production along with the amount of laminated glass scrap (reduced industrial waste).
In 2016 - 2018, BODESA UAB implemented a project financed by the EU
BODESA UAB has successfully implemented the European Union-funded project “Implementation of Modern Technologies in BODESA UAB by Creating New Production Capacities”. The company's project was implemented in accordance with the Regio Invest LT + measure of Priority 3 “Promotion of Small and Medium Business Competitiveness” of the European Union Funds Investment Operational Program for 2014-2020 and financed by the European Regional Development Fund.
The total value of the investment project is ~ EUR 7.5 million. The amount of support is EUR 2.1 million.
The aim of the project is to increase competitiveness and productivity of the company by implementing modern technologies in its operations. In the course of the project, construction and reconstruction works were carried out by expanding the area of production premises, new high-quality production equipment and software for the production of glass units and tempered glass was purchased.
The project contributed to initiation of the new production processes (tempered glass, glass for indoor glass partitions) and to increase of the current production volumes. The implemented project allowed to create new workplaces, to significantly increase productivity and competitiveness of the company, thus laying the groundwork for offering of the new, high-quality and extremely attractive products to the Lithuanian and foreign markets.
Since 2019, BODESA UAB has been successfully implementing another EU SF-funded project
Since June 2019, BODESA UAB has successfully implemented another project financed by the European Union Structural Funds “Increasing the production capacity of BODESA UAB”, implemented in accordance with Priority 3 “Promotion of Small and Medium Business Competitiveness” of the European Union Funds Investment Operational Program 2014-2020” measure Regio Potential LT and financed by the European Regional Development Fund. The total value of the project is EUR 1,038,041.00. The amount of support is EUR 363,314.00. The aim of the project is to increase investments in the implementation of modern technologies in operations of the company. In the course of the project, the new high-quality production equipment was purchased allowing production of the high value-added products, as well as expansion of the product range of the company, and also the production of some of the products that were previously purchased from suppliers, such as fireproof glass, heat-soaked tempered glass. The project will contribute to acceleration of the production processes and to increase of the production volumes. The implemented project would allow to increase the company's productivity and competitiveness, thus laying the groundwork for offering of the new, high-quality and extremely attractive products to the Lithuanian and foreign markets.
In 2020, reorganisation of BODESA UAB was completed. Activities of the construction division were suspended (the company decided to discontinue these activities) and the activities of the windows division were transferred to another, newly established company. Since 01/06/2020, BODESA UAB has carried out only one activity, namely processing of flat glass (production of glass units and tempered glass).
At the end of 2020, BODESA UAB started implementing a new EU-funded project
Since December 2020, BODESA UAB has started to implement a new European Union-funded project "Solar Power Plant Installation in BODESA UAB", implemented in accordance with measure “Renewable Energy Resources for Industry LT+” of the Priority 4 of the European Union Funds Investment Operational Program 2014-2020 "Promotion of the Energy Efficiency and the Production and Use of Energy from Renewable Sources” and financed by the European Regional Development Fund.
Total value of the project is EUR 691,361.90.
Amount of the support is EUR 276,544.76.
Aim of the project is to reduce the energy consumption intensity in BODESA UAB by increasing production and consumption of the renewable energy resources.
The growing amount of energy consumption due to the expansion of operations and production park of the company encourages the company to consider energy saving, more efficient use thereof, implementation of various measures, technologies that protect the environment and natural resources. For this purpose, BODESA UAB conducted an energy audit and, in accordance with the recommendations provided therein, the company is planning to install a solar power plant that would allow the company to use the electric power produced for its own internal needs. Installation of the equipment would allow to reduce consumption of the conventional energy along with the production costs, and to increase the company's competitiveness in the market.
