Expansion of production hall and stocking area of Emtelle GmbH in Erfurt
Emtelle, the global manufacturer of pre-connectorised, blown fibre cable and ducted network solutions, is expanding its existing production facility in Erfurt. Following on from the announcement regarding the purchase of 17,000m² land, Emtelle can announce this space will now become an extensive stocking area with 12,000m² while an additional 1,400m² production area will be set up on the existing property. With a total investment volume of EUR 8 million, the expansion offers more potential for production, storage capacities, new test facilities and trainings.
While the construction of the newly acquired stocking area is already taking place since October 2020, the building works for the extension of the hall have just started. The new building will enable further optimization of the production for microducts, bundles and fibre optic products, which Emtelle is producing in Erfurt. These developments will ultimately strengthen the company’s full offering and enable Emtelle to better serve the global growing demand. The new stocking area will already be available from February 2021. The lines in the new production hall will be ready for production in August 2021.
With manufacturing facilities in Germany, Denmark and Scotland, Emtelle are already perfect placed to supply reliable, high quality fibre and ducted network solutions to over 100 countries across the globe. The expansion of the production site further emphasises this and enhances the focus that Emtelle holds on continuously improving service to customers both in the German & global markets.
Emtelle Group CEO, Tony Rodgers comments “We are sending a clear signal by investing in our production in Erfurt. As leaders in our field, it is important that we have the opportunity to grow. In the next 12 months we will again grow and thus continue to give our best to produce and deliver as efficiently as possible – with a high focus on quality and customer satisfaction.”
Emtelle GmbH Plant Manager, Michael Viehmann adds: “The new property and the hall extension will enable us to offer best-in-class products and optimize our support and logistics. For us, the German market is a focus market and at the same time a rapidly growing market. It is therefore imperative that we continue to invest in our plant in Erfurt and expand and improve our production capacity. And we also want our customers and employees to feel comfortable at our plant. Therefore, the existing administration building is currently being modernised as well”.
Since the takeover of Moore GmbH at a total consideration of more than EUR 30 million in 2017 and the establishment of the German Emtelle GmbH, over 80 employees have been working at the Erfurt site, who are responsible for the production and sales of microducts. The expansion underlines the focus on the German and surrounding markets that Emtelle GmbH is pursuing. Since the establishment of the production in Erfurt, Emtelle has recorded enormous growth in Germany.
