Parallel to the capacity extension at the company's home base in Halver – about 800 m² of production area will be put into operation in the Czech Republic.
According to Managing Director Dietrich Turck, the connector and housing manufacturer intends to create further preconditions for growth and stability with these measures.
“We have reached our capacity limit at our home base”, says Managing Director Dietrich Turck. “Instead of exclusively extending our production areas in Halver, we have decided for an additional investment in the Czech Republic. Here, we have the possibility to produce at a comparably low wage level with a highly developed infrastructure.”
At first, exclusively sub-assemblies for further processing at German plants will be manufactured. According to Dietrich Turck, the target within the first six months is to build up an administrative- and a production team of about 40 to 50 employees.
Investment at the Halver location
The Oststrasse plant has been provided with injection moulding machines worth 750,000 euros and a further 1,000 m² for the tool shop, tool design and machine programming will be available.
“The entire machine park can now be better coordinated through the new injection moulding machines. This, in turn, increases the flexibility and the capacity of the plant“, says Jürgen Sikora, Managing Director Tool and Plastic Technology at ESCHA.
According to company information, approximately 12,000 so called “ejected parts“ per day are currently produced on 20 machines at the production site in Oststrasse.
