MUNICH, GERMANY (Aug. 18, 3:45 p.m. ET) — Progress to extend KraussMaffei AG's Schwaig, Germany, manufacturing plant is ahead of schedule, according to the company.
Work on the interior fittings will start in September while the production hall is scheduled for completion in October.
“We are ahead of our original planning timetable with the construction of the new production hall," said Karlheinz Bourdon, managing director of KraussMaffei Technologies.
"I am extremely confident that we will start production at the beginning of November,” he added.
The doubling of the production area, to 16,900 square feet, will cover the growing demand for automated production cells for injection molding lines, according to the company.
“Demand is undiminished because our customers are increasingly recognizing the value-added and efficiency potential of effective production cells comprising robots and injection molding machines,” Bourdon said.
