60 years of pump production and 50 years at the Waldkraiburg site

In its anniversary year the company is staying abreast of its constant growth in diverse ways. Therefore, the expansion of top management is just the first measure to be taken.

This year, Netzsch will be investing approx. 8 million euro, extending plant II at Geretsrieder Straße by a 4000 m2 hall for elastomer technology and a pilot plant of 1000 m2.  These investments are necessary for to enable expansion of the company’s core competences. The stator production facility, which counts as one of the most modern in the world, is to be extended to include the manufacture of elastomer parts for Tornado® rotary lobe pumps. The subsidiaries will also need to be reliably supplied on their course of expansion in the future. The new pilot plant offers the right environment for developing new products.
