German-based leading producer of finishing machinery for the textile industry, Brückner will begin the construction work of its new production site in Germany this month. The manufacturer will invest £ 40 million in the expansion project which is expected to be completed by the end of 2017.

The company decided on building a completely new production site on the outskirts of Tittmoning, Germany due to the lack of extension possibilities at the current site. Since 1960, the Brückner production site has been located in the Bavarian town of Tittmoning. With about 180 employees and workers here, the company produces about 120 machines and lines per year, 95 per cent of which are exported internationally.

“In the decision for the new building it was for us very important that all of our workers and employees could continue since our personnel is our major asset and their experience cannot be replaced. In addition it was important for us to get a particularly energy-efficient building. Our new production site shall be as efficient and energy-saving as our lines. For the same, the new site will get an attractive envelope, providing thermal protection and daylight admission at the same time. With a large photovoltaic system on the roof it will be also possible to save energy. And the large green space around the building will provide for ecological diversity,” informed Regina Brückner, Owner of Brückner

Spread across 25,000 square metres, the new building will not only be energy-efficient but also more spacious than the current one. It will allow the company to install machines with working widths of more than seven metres; moreover the heavy components can be transported more easily, according to the company.
