Grafenberg, Germany — Rampf Group has broken ground on a new 4,000 m2 (43,000 sq ft) facility to make styling, modeling and working boards made with polyurethane and epoxy resins.
Rampf adds PU modeling board capacity
The firm said the expansion will cost EUR11 m ($12 m) and is the "largest investment Rampf has ever made." It will be located next to the firm's existing Innovation Centre.
Modeling boards are used in design studios across a wide range of industries including: automotive, aerospace, shipbuilding and wind energy, the firm said. The space will be occupied by the firm's Polymer Solutions division. The expansion will "allow us to restructure and update the existing facilities so that we can further optimise our processes," said Matthias Rampf, ceo Rampf Holdings. The new building could be home for up to 15 new jobs, the firm said.
