Blow molding machinery maker Kautex Maschinenbau has completed construction of its new 5,000-square-meter assembly building at its headquarters in Bonn, Germany.

The plant, which officially opened on Nov. 9, will be used mainly for the assembly of the company’s KBB-series all-electric packaging machines as well as KSB machines for blow molding applications in the automotive industry.

“As demand here remains high for our machinery, we are in urgent need of more production space,” said Kautex Maschinenbau CEO Olaf Weiland. “The plant expansion will allow us to increase our output even further, which will result in shorter lead times for our customers.”

The new building has also created 80 new office roles.

Kautex Maschinenbau U.S. subsidiary, Kautex Machines Inc., is located in North Branch, N.J.
