Austrian agricultural machinery manufacturer Pöttinger has marked a new stage of plant expansion with a ground breaking ceremony at its headquarters in Grieskirchen, Austria.
The company has invested EUR 25 million in reorganising its production layout. Adding 12,000 sqm of space for manufacturing and logistics designed to support future growth. The company expects to complete the project by summer 2017.
To support on-going expansion of sales to international markets and cope with the increasing demands on agricultural technology, Pöttinger has made massive investments in its manufacturing plants over the past few years.
The seed drill plant in Bernburg (DE) and the machinery plant in Vodnany (CZ) have both been expanded and brought up to the very latest standards. The Working-WORLD project saw forward-looking administration offices being built at the company’s headquarters, setting a new course for the future.
“The successful Pöttinger PlantWORLD series of expansions sees us enter a new era with additional manufacturing space at our headquarters and complete reorganisation of the whole production process. With these investments we can support future growth to remain competitive and successful on the international markets “, say Managing Directors Heinz and Klaus Pöttinger.
