On June 1, 2016, work commenced on construction of a new production hall with adjacent office building in Eningen, near Reutlingen in Germany’s South-West. This will create one of the most advanced manufacturing facilities for processing polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE) in close proximity to the company’s headquarters. The facility will provide Berghof Fluoroplastics with 2,440 m² of gross floor space with the potential for winning new customers from Germany and abroad.
With an investment volume in the region of € 4 million, this is at the same time the biggest single investment in the company’s recent history and thus a vote of confidence on the part of the owners in the group’s performance, and a commitment to Eningen as a location. The buildings are scheduled for completion in Q1 2017.
