ATC in Radevormwald reopens with a celebration

The refurbished ARBURG Technology Center (ATC) in Radevormwald is back in operation. After a two-year modernization phase, on 7 June 2024, ARBURG Partners Juliane and Michael Hehl, together with the Managing Directors and project leads, cut the reopening ribbon. This event, marked by an open house, followed an exclusive event the previous evening. The two-day event was attended by a total of around 250 guests.

Focus on modernization and innovation

Shortly after the 40th anniversary celebrations, the ATC was cleared and gutted in August 2022. The comprehensive renovations and modernizations included installing photovoltaic and geothermal systems, a triple-glazed glass facade, and efficient roof insulation. Following the renovation and thanks to the use of renewable energies, the annual primary energy requirement of the ATC Radevormwald is around just 40% of that of a newly built reference building. In addition, the top floor now accommodates redesigned training rooms with state-of-the-art presentation equipment. The technical center also fulfils the latest requirements.

Two-year transition period: always there for the customer

During the two-year transition period, the ARBURG staff in Radevormwald did everything possible to continue to offer customers the best support, with total dedication and flexibility. The team of thirty plus were based in an office building around half a mile away. At the temporary location, the office work and customer service hotline were able to continue 100% in house. The good, long-standing relationships with customers proved to be an advantage. For application technology and training, the ARBURG staff was able to use the customers' machines on site.

Evening event and open house with presentations

An exclusive event was held the evening before the opening celebration; the official portion followed on 7 June with Managing Partner Michael Hehl and Managing Director Technology & Engineering Guido Frohnhaus. In total, around 250 invited customers and partners used the opportunity to take in the new facilities. All seven ALLROUNDER machines were in operation, showcasing interesting applications to demonstrate the wide range of injection molding products and services. The program of events was rounded off with presentations on hot topics such as digitalization, sustainability, and hybrid machine technology.
