New assembly hall opened
Headquarters extended by 200,000 square feet
On March 15, 2016, in the presence of around 550 invited guests, ARBURG officially opened the new assembly hall, where large ALLROUNDERs and turnkey systems will be produced. This extends the usable floorspace at the Lossburg site by approximately 13 percent, now amounting to 1,775,000 square feet.
Commitment to the Lossburg location
"The new assembly hall meets our high standards for cost-efficient production and conservation of resources," emphasized Michael Hehl, Managing Partner and Spokesperson for the Management Team in his opening address. "This investment demonstrates our commitment to the environment, to our location and to securing our company's future." ARBURG will use the 200,000 ft2 new building to meet the growing demand for large injection molding machines and turnkey systems.
Gala opening event
On the eve of the ARBURG Technology Days 2016, around 550 guests from all over the world enjoyed a unique event with a spectacular stage show and a roster of high-profile speakers, including William R. Carteaux, President of the Society of the Plastics Industry (USA) and Thorsten Kühmann, Managing Director of the VDMA Professional Association for Plastics and Rubber Machinery (Germany). There were two major surprises at this event: the world premiere of the electric ALLROUNDER GOLDEN ELECTRIC and the introduction of the new Managing Director Sales, Gerhard Böhm. In a dialog with his predecessor Helmut Heinson, who is retiring, he explained further details of the new machine series.
