Rehau invests approx. two million Euros in the new building of a technical center, which is supposed to be completed by the spring of 2014, in Cullman, US state Alabama (figure: Rehau)

The polymer specialist Rehau AG+Co, Rehau, Germany, invests in the expansion of its automotive location Cullman, US state Alabama, with the construction of a "technical center". A new building, where 45 engineers will be employed in future, is supposed to be built on an area of around 1,100 square metres in the immediate vicinity of the production plant . Approximately two million Euros are earmarked for the new building; the ground will be broken in spring 2014.

It is the first technical center the global polymer processor builds on North American soil modelled on German centers. Such a competence center was already built in Feuchtwangen, the group of company's largest site, in 1996 with measurable success, which Rehau now wants to transfer to the production in Alabama.

The new technical center, which will be built on the Cullman site, will increase the development expertise and productivity as well as secure jobs in the North American automotive division of the company in the region Cullman. The specialist departments logistics, production, painting and injection molding are supposed to be brought together under one roof in future.

Rehau is currently producing primarily for the customer Daimler in North America and was recently able to secure contracts for the facelift of the GL class in addition to contracts for the C and M classes. The production volume increasing as a result of this made it necessary to extend the plant, which will be completed by spring 2014. To achieve this, the polymer specialist recently invested a further 100 million Euros. This additional extension phase will create approximately a total of 140 new jobs in Cullman.
