Injection molding machine maker Arburg GmbH & Co. KG has started construction on a new training centre at its headquarters in Lossburg, Germany.
The new multi-storey building will provide 13,700 square metres of usable space and represents an investment of several tens of millions of euros for the company. This will bring the total usable space at the Lossburg site to 180,000 square metres.
In a statement, Arburg said the ground floor of the new building will offer space for around 15 Allrounder injection moulding machines for practical training. “Twelve rooms will be available on the first floor for training customers on theoretical points,” then statement said. “The next two floors will be open plan offices for administrative staff. Finally, the fourth floor will house Arburg’s company health management services. A new staff entrance is also being built.”
The new training centre is the latest in a series of construction activities at Arburg’s Lossburg HQ. Since 2007 the company has built a customer centre, an assembly hall, a multi-storey car park, and a trade fair logistics hall.
“This training centre is a clear sign of our commitment to Lossburg as a production location and demonstrates our long-term, goal-oriented strategy,” Arburg managing partner Michael Hehl said during the groundbreaking ceremony.
