Ground-breaking Ceremony for Plant Expansion at Emtelle GMBH in Erfurt
The range of solutions and stocking capacities will be expanded through the acquisition of 17,000m² of land
01/10/2020- The construction work for the expansion of the Emtelle GmbH started today with a ground-breaking ceremony. Together with State Secretary Valentina Kerst (State Secretary in the Thuringian Ministry of Economics, Science and Digital Society), Steffen Linnert (Deputy for Economic Affairs Erfurt), Wolfgang Jentz (Head of Department for Economic Development Erfurt) and Susann Martens (Director Investment Promotion Western Europe at LEG Thuringia), the responsible employees at Emtelle GmbH gave the “Go-ahead”.
With the acquisition of 17,000 m² of land next to its existing production facility, Emtelle, the global manufacturer of microduct and fibre optic cable solutions, is expanding its capacities in Erfurt. In May, the manufacturer announced an expansion of its production capacities with the purchase of two new extrusion lines. With the newly acquired property, Emtelle GmbH will expand its stocking capacities for microducts and fibre optic cables and set up test tracks and new customer training rooms. This enables Emtelle to serve its customers even more flexibly and quickly with high-quality products for the FTTH expansion. The existing administration and factory building will also be expanded and modernized at the same time.
Since the takeover of Moore GmbH with an amount of more than EUR 30 million in 2017 and the establishment of the Emtelle GmbH, over 80 employees now work at the Erfurt site, who are responsible for the production and sales of microducts. The new acquisition of the property underlines the focus on Germany and the surrounding markets, which Emtelle GmbH is currently pursuing. Since the establishment of the location in Erfurt, Emtelle in Germany has recorded an enormous growth. The purchase of the property is now another investment in more growth and capacity.
After the ground-breaking ceremony, those present were able to personally get an impression of the microduct production on site as part of a factory tour.
