Arburg Expands Central Production Plant

On 28 April 2014, Arburg GmbH & Co. KG held the official ground-breaking ceremony for a new assembly hall in Lossburg, Germany, which will expand the central production location by 13 % to just under 165,000 m2 . Initial excavation work began in March 2014 and the completion date has been set for the autumn of 2015. With the new building section, Arburg is responding to the increasing demand for large injection molding machines and complete production cells.

The capital investment for the new building section, to the tune of many tens of millions of euros, demonstrates the company's commitment to Lossburg as a production location and is an indicator of its long-term, targeted strategy. Significantly more time and space is required for assembly and testing of the large injection molding machines up to a clamping force of 5,000 kN and complete turnkey systems.

The new two-storey building section with a floorspace of 18,600 m2 will increase the total area in Lossburg by some 13 percent to just under 165,000 m2 .

During its construction activities, Arburg always focuses on functionality and aesthetics. Moreover, environmental protection and the conservation of resources and energy represent a permanent feature of Arburg’s corporate culture. The waste heat produced is utilised for heating the hall, for example. Collected rainwater is used by the gardeners and covers all the requirements for the sanitary facilities. Furthermore, its use as a buffer storage for the industrial cooling required in the building is a special feature. North-facing shed roofs reduce the thermal load and minimise the need for electric lighting. The natural cold of the ambient air is used for air conditioning purposes – e.g. via an ingenious facade design that employs natural ventilation instead of ventilation systems. Furthermore, extension of the photovoltaic plants to generate a further 340 kWp (kilowatt-peak) is also planned.
