Groundbreaking ceremony for the expansion of the headquarters

“In recent years, our business in the US has developed significantly better and faster than expected. Thanks to this dynamic development, we now face the fortunate problem that our US headquarters, which was newly built as recently as 2015, is already reaching its capacity limits," explains Friedrich Kanz, Managing Director of ARBURG, Inc.
New production floor and state-of-the-art logistics
The new production floor will create more space for building and acceptance testing complete turnkey systems, adapting stock machines to customer specifications and a significantly larger spare parts warehouse. The new building will be equipped with state-of-the-art logistics, including a gantry crane with a lifting capacity of 40 tonnes. As a result, after-sales service of the ARBURG subsidiary will also be improved. Moreover, further rooms will be available for customer training and technical seminars, as well as 25 additional office workplaces for employees, mainly from the Application Technology, Turnkey and Service departments. The existing building already includes a showroom for up to seven ALLROUNDER injection moulding machines and a laboratory with two freeformers for additive manufacturing.
