Cham, Germany – VMI Extrusion has relocated to a new facility in the city of Cham, Bavaria, in eastern Germany, the company has announced.
The new facility, based in an industrial area in Cham, will be home to VMI extrusion technology centre and manufacturing plant.
VMI acquired the extrusion division of AZ Formen-und Maschinebau GmbH in 2004 and continued its extrusion activities at a location adjacent to AZ in the of Runding, 10km away from Cham.
However, VMI said its “growth and ambitions… required a more modern building.”
The facility will play a key role in the development, engineering, testing and delivery of VMI’s extrusion equipment, the company noted.
“This includes equipment for integration in VMI’s tire production systems and tire retreading systems as well as for VMI’s extruder programme for the technical rubber – and tire industry,” the company added.
The production and assembly of VMI’s extruders will take place both in Cham and in VMI’s new production facility in Leszno, Poland, which was inaugurated September last year.
The Cham facility was officially inaugurated on 12 Sept by mayor of Cham Mrs Karin Bucher and Edward Holweg, COO of VMI.
