Arburg, Lossburg, Germany, states that it will expand its production capacity by 18,000 m2 with the construction of a new assembly hall, just two years after completing construction on its most recently opened production facility in 2016. Assembly Hall 23 is the planned result of what the company states is a ‘large two-digit-million-euro’ investment, and is scheduled to begin construction in 2019 for completion in 2020.
Michael Hehl, Arburg Managing Partner, commented, “At the international press conference held during our Technology Days in mid-March, I was already saying that while we here at Arburg have certainly built on many occasions, and a fair amount at that – we have never before engaged in quite as much construction work, nor progressed with it quite as vigorously as we have over the last five years.”
The company stated that its investment in a new assembly hall is the result of a consistently performing global economy and the growing importance of delivering machines to customers on schedule and in the desired quantities. “We wish to sell even more of our machines as global demand for them rises, and we are seeking to manufacture them even more quickly,” Hehl concluded.
