Munich, German -- KraussMaffei Group has commissioned its second assembly hall at Sucany in Slovakia, and has started production earlier than planned, after doubling capacity, making the production area 13 000 sq.m, just two years after opening the Sucany plant.
"Production in the second assembly hall is … commencing well before the originally planned starting date in the first quarter of 2013. I would like to thank all participating companies and our employees for their great commitment and dedication," said chairman Jan Siebert, in the company's announcement..
"Doubling of the production capacities is an important move for the KraussMaffei Group so that it can cope even better with the increasing demand for electric injection moulding machines and reaction process machinery and systems on our core markets and on growth markets such as Eastern Europe and Asia," Siebert added.
In future, Sucany will also produce parts for KraussMaffei's EX injection moulding machines, linear robots, reaction process machines and systems, and component trimming machines (including punching machines which cut gates or produce openings).
Previously the plant has made, KraussMaffei AX injection moulding machines, as well as switching cabinets and moulds. During the extension, the company improved production processes and quality management.
