Rüti, Switzerland - Roller coverer Hannecard GmbH has moved its activities to a new facility in Rüti, Switzerland to improve customer delivery requirements in the German, Austrian and Swiss domestic market, the company said recently.
The new facility will have a new polyurethane casting machine, precision grinding equipment, a dust-free control room and a major R&D laboratory.
Five years ago, Belgium-based Hannecord Group, which specialises in roll coverings, acquired the polyurethane moulding and roll coverings business of Huber + Suhner, based in Pfaffikon in Switzerland.
This unit, now moved to Rüti, manufactures PU coverings for various speciality domains such as rotogravure printing via both classical and electrostatic assist (ESA) methods, label and narrow web printing, packaging, converting and the textile industry.
The move was expected to be completed by 1 Dec, the company said.
