Kautex Maschinenbau – Additional assembly hall officially inaugurated
| Subj: Press-releses
Kautex Maschinenbau has completed its new 5,000 m2 assembly hall at its Bonn HQ after a construction period of just nine months. The plant will mainly be used for the assembly of KBB-series all-electric packaging machines as well as KSB machines for blow molding applications in the automotive industry. The expansion has also created 80 new office roles. The official inauguration ceremony took place on November 9th, with many guests from the worlds of politics and business in attendance. The speakers included district mayor and member of parliament, Guido Déus, as well as Victoria Appelbe, Head of the Economic Development Office.
“We are delighted with the steadily growing demand for our high-performance and energy-efficient extrusion blow molding machines for the packaging sector,” commented Dr. Olaf Weiland, CEO of Kautex Maschinenbau. “In the past, we mainly focused on large blow molding machines for the automotive segment. More recently, however, we have seen considerable parallel development of our packaging machine business. As demand here remains high, we are in urgent need of more production space. The plant expansion will allow us to increase our output even further, which will result in shorter lead times for our customers.” The company has financed the new assembly hall from its own resources.
