Expansion Incoe breaks ground for European headquarters
The site is expected to be ready early next year.
Incoe International Europe has laid the cornerstone for its new expansion in Rödermark, Germany, which the company said will create facilities of its own.
The hot runner supplier said that by the spring of 2014, all business areas will have taken up occupancy in the new administration and production buildings.
The new complex consists of two adjoining tracts, and the site, which totals more than 14,400 square meters, features nearly 5,200 square metres of space for administrative offices and for production available in the foreseeable future.
General Manager of Europe Operations Gunnar Gramatzki summed up the benefit to the company, suppliers and customers: “Everything is finally under a single roof.”
The company said the new facility will be the logical outcome of staff and business trends in recent years as Incoe has grown and become more of a key player in Europe.
Dirk Schubert, the in-house coordinator for the construction project and an Incoe manager, explained that the decisive factors for management and the US-based family that owns the company were more than just the added space. Along with modern energy concepts and important refinements – such as an air-conditioned quality control laboratory – the main focus is on new production lines set up according to lean-management principles, a reason the facility includes administrative offices.
