Stuttgart, Germany – Trelleborg Sealing Solutions (TSS) has started the construction of a new ‘highly automated’ European service centre at its Stuttgart-Gärtringen headquarters, the company announced 17 June.
The ‘sustainably designed’ building will have a floor space of 14,000 square metres and is scheduled for completion in April 2023.
The facility will offer industry-specific solutions, such as cleanroom handling for the semiconductor and healthcare & medical industries, sub-assembly for the fluid power and off-highway industries, and nano-strength coatings for the food, beverage & water industry.
