Einbeck, Germany – Burgsmüller GmbH, part of KraussMaffei Group, is relocating its production headquarters from Kreiensen in central Germany to the nearby town of Einbeck, the company announced 5 Sept.
Part of KraussMaffei Berstorff, Burgsmüller manufactures screws, barrels, spindles and other components for extruders and compounding equipment.
The new location, spanning 7,200 square metres, is set for operation in the second quarter of 2020 and will accommodate Burgsmüller’s 125 employees.
Describing it as the “most modern manufacturing site in Europe," Burgsmüller said the new site will focus on internationally competitive production and would be built to “the most demanding technical standards”.
Burgsmüller also added that it would “rigorously align” its production facilities in the new plant with Industry 4.0. standards.
“The Einbeck site will be designed as a smart factory with consistently networked production and data processing in real time, visualized processes and extensive data analysis,” the company statement added.
The plant will also substantially improve production efficiency and reduce lead times through the use of “state-of-the-art” machine tools, the company added.
