Fontane ACM opens cable plant in Poland
ACE Poland, part of the Fontane ACM Group, has expanded its manufacturing facility in Bialogard (Poland). Production is scheduled to begin in April.
"The automated production of large quantities of cables and cable assemblies , i.e. from 100'000 upwards, still has a place in Germany", says Maro Voelkner, Sales and Marketing Director of Fontane ACM Group. "In contrast, the manual production of small and medium series is no longer economically viable in Germany and is increasingly outsourced." The new facility in Poland is - so the manager - a direct response to this outsourcing need. The smaller batches of between 10 to 100 units can be assembled to customer specifications. A company has already outsourced the entire production of 60 - 70 cable-series to the new Polish facility.
