Recently, the shareholders’ meeting of the Netzsch Group approved the centralization of the facilities in Waldkraiburg, Germany. With an investment of 50 million Euros. This is a clear commitment of the shareholders to the location Waldkraiburg. It is to be seen in connection with the implementation of the Global Operations Strategy, with which the Pumps & Systems Business Unit will bring its production and assembly operations even closer to its customers around the world and exploit cross-location advantages and synergies.
A further approximately 50 million euros will be invested worldwide over the next few years, i.e. a total of 100 million euros. These funds will be used for factory expansions in the USA, Brazil, China and India. In addition to the assembly centre already operating successfully in Anting near Shanghai, further assembly centres will be added in South Africa, Australia, Thailand, Russia, Mexico and Indonesia. All locations will work together in a digitally supported network. The aim is to achieve even greater customer proximity. In this way, and with other accompanying measures such as e-learning, Proven Excellence, MyNetzsch and other future oriented projects, Netzsch intends to further expand the global market leadership for its pumps.
