Construction is now underway on an extension to Ceratizit Austria GmbH’s manufacturing plant in Reutte, Austria. According to Ceratizit’s parent organisation Plansee SE, the new build will be ready for occupation by spring 2022, and will house a staff of up to 300 workers.

The extension to the plant reportedly involves an investment in the double-digit million euro range, and the new facility is set to comprise a multi-story building with a length of 200 m and width of 80 m; approximately twice the size of a football pitch. To combine the old plant with the new building, Ceratizit will pave a previously privately-used gravel road to route internal plant traffic away from public roads.

At present, three companies of the Plansee Group operate out of the same industrial park in Reutte. While Plansee SE manufactures semi-finished products and components made of tungsten and molybdenum metals, Ceratizit Austria specialises in the production of carbide tools for machining processes. The new building will house the Grinding Shop and Tool & Die, enabling Ceratizit Austria to meet the strong global demand for hard metal tools.
