KraussMaffei’s Slovakia plant expansion completed earlier than schedule
The KraussMaffei Group officially commissioned the second assembly hall at the plant in Sucany, Slovakia on November 27. The production capacity is being doubled just two years after the opening of the Sucany plant.
“Production in the second assembly hall is commencing well before the originally planned starting date in the first quarter of 2013. I would like to thank all participating companies and our employees for their great commitment and dedication,” said Jan Siebert, Chairman of the Board of Management. The KraussMaffei Group is doubling the production area to around 13,000sqm from 6,600sqm two years after the opening of the plant in October 2010.
“Doubling of the production capacities is an important move for the KraussMaffei Group so that it can cope even better with the increasing demand for electric injection molding machines and reaction process machinery and systems on our core markets and on growth markets such as Eastern Europe and Asia,” stated Mr Siebert. In future, this plant will also produce for the KraussMaffei brand injection molding machines in the EX series, linear robots, reaction process machines and systems, and component trimming machines, such as punching machines which cut gates or produce openings.
To date, KraussMaffei injection molding machines in the AX series, as well as switching cabinets and molds have been manufactured in Sucany.
