Röchling Maywo expands site: New logistics hall and extension of production
| Subj: Opening and expansion
Röchling Maywo GmbH has officially opened its logistics hall and the extension to its production facilities in Bad Grönenbach. With this five-million-euro investment, Röchling is strengthening its position as Europe’s leading manufacturer of vacuum formable sheets and foils made from thermoplastics, creating 25 new jobs at the same time.
The operational site has been expanded by almost 10,000 square meters to incorporate a warehouse and production hall covering 5,000 square meters as well as a large employee car park. Managing Directors Ingrid Teichmann and Florian Helmich opened the new building together with Bernhard Kerler, First Mayor of Bad Grönenbach, and Franz Lübbers, who is responsible for Röchling Group’s Industrial division.
Close to the market
This success is reflected in the figures: Following the takeover by Röchling, sales have almost doubled in just six years and the number of employees has risen from 75 to nearly 140 today. In his address, Florian Helmich emphasised: “Since 2012, we have evolved from a manufacturer into a driver of innovation. With our expertise in materials and application, we purposefully develop new materials ourselves specifically to meet the requirements of our customers. This expansion means we will be able to better meet the requirements of our customers in future and further boost our delivery capacity.”
Close cooperation with the community
Ingrid Teichmann introduced as Managing Director
Both Managing Directors were delighted that so many business partners were able to attend the opening. The complete two-day programme included not only the official celebration, but also a communal evening event with dinner in the Hohes Schloss castle in Bad Grönenbach, as well as a lunch and a tour of the company’s site.
A celebratory inauguration was organised for employees to mark the opening of the new building. Here, Florian Helmich thanked everybody for their tremendous efforts over the past few years and looked ahead to the shared tasks they will now face: “With this excellent team, we can look forward to a very positive future.”
A leader throughout Europe
Customers use these thermoforming products in a range of different areas, for example vehicle construction, the electrical industry, mechanical engineering and the sports and leisure industry. Röchling-Maywo sheets and foils are used to create ceiling or wall cladding in trains and coaches. Another key area is in the electronics industry, where workpiece carriers made of electrically conductive plastics are required for computer chips and PCBs.
