This will expand the plant by 13% to just under 165,000 m2, the company says. The hall is set to be completed by autumn of 2015.

The hall is being build in response to an increasing demand for large injection moulding machines and complete production cells.

“The capital investment for the new building section, to the tune of many tens of millions of Euros, demonstrates our clear commitment to Lossburg as a production location,” said explains Michael Hehl, managing partner and spokesperson for the Arburg management team. “With the new building, we are implementing highly integrated facility management, which will reduce the primary energy requirements to a minimum and therefore further expands our environmental protection activities.”
