New building enhances flexibility in production
Püttlingen, December 2014 – Aside from numerous carmakers, more and more customers from the commercial vehicle industry are relying on the measuring and test stands offered by Dürr Assembly Products. To be able to meet the demand for these exceptionally large and heavy systems, the company has expanded its production facilities in Püttlingen (Germany).
“Halls 4 and 5 have given us approximately 3,200 square meters of extra floor space. This corresponds to an area increase of 20%. It will enable us to handle more orders on the one hand; on the other, we will be considerably more flexible than in the past because we will now consolidate all production and logistics processes at our location,” explains Managing Director Horst Hartmann.
And that will certainly be necessary since this specialist for measuring and test stands is gaining more and more commercial vehicle customers. The customers have specific requirements when it comes to the size and weight of the systems. As a result, one of the halls which is used to assemble the systems reaches an exceptional height of more than 13 meters and has a particularly strong structure made of reinforced concrete. Three crane facilities with a total load capacity of 40 tons ensure that even the heavy test stands for trucks and buses are placed in the right position fast and securely.
The hall has a total floor space of about 1,700 square meters. The new logistics hall is almost as large, with a floor space of approx. 1,500 square meters.
