Schubert opens new hall complex

16 Dec


Geared up for the future – with capacities for further growth

Crailsheim. On 2 October, Gerhard Schubert GmbH opened a new factory complex at its Crailsheim location and began production. By putting this new assembly hall into operation, the company is increasing its production capacities and strengthening its position on its worldwide growth course.

After only 18 months of construction, the new hall complex covers 12,000 m² and can accommodate assembly, shipping and 40 office spaces. “Our new plant represents a significant milestone in our growth strategy,” explains Ralf Schubert. “With the new building, we will not only eliminate assembly bottlenecks, we are now able to further increase our serial production.” Schubert invested a total of 16 million euros in the new complex. In the future, along with an existing hall, the new hall will be used for final assembly of TLM machines. Altogether, Schubert now has three halls with a total area of 32,000 m². While building the complex, the company incorporated state-of-the-art environmentally friendly technology: air conditioning will take place via geothermal power, for which more than 75 holes were drilled to a depth of around 80 metres.

The manufacturer of high-performance packaging machines considers itself ideally equipped to gain an additional share of both growth markets and new business areas, such as the pharmaceutical industry. The company anticipates annual growth of eight to ten percent within the next five years. In order to secure the necessary manufacturing capacity over the long term, the company is already looking at investing in a fourth hall by 2020.
