Big Kaiser Increased production capacity for 2020
Big Kaiser has announced a range of investments in production, logistics and infrastructure, as well as the recruitment of additional staff across Europe.
To ensure that Big Kaiser remains at the forefront of innovation, precision and quality, it is currently investing several million euros into new machines and machining centres.
This includes the purchase of two DMG Mori turning centres, one with robot loading, and the modernisation of its machine park to better align with Industry 4.0.
Reto Adam, CEO at Big Kaiser, said, “Big Kaiser's outstanding growth in 2018 set the scene for consolidation in 2019 that has enabled the current substantial investments. They will ensure that we remain at the forefront of our industry and have the capacity, flexibility and expertise to rapidly respond to the needs of the market and our customers.”
In 2020, the company will be opening a state-of-the-art technology center and has migrated to the latest SAP enterprise resource planning system.
The company's major product launches in 2019 included the EWE Downsize: The world's smallest digital fine boring head, as well as new sizes and indexable inserts which expanded Big Kaiser’s turning tools range, and the Dyna Test, Dyna Force and Dyna Contact measurement and test devices developed by Big Daishowa in Japan. The company also states there is more to come in 2020.
