Röchling Expands Plant in Czech Republic

The plastics specialist Röchling SE & Co. KG, Mannheim, Germany, has completed the expansion of its location in Koprivnice, Czech Republic, successfully. Röchling Automotive celebrated the official commissioning of the new spaces, warehouses, and production facilities with a ceremony at the plant.

“We are glad that our expansion project was completed so smoothly,” said Evelyn Thome, Commercial Manager of Röchling Automotive Germany SE & Co. KG in Worms. The capital expenditure for the expansion and renovation amounted to EUR 8 million.

The plant in Ostrava has been supplying customers in Europe, Asia, and the USA since 2007. In that time, it has made an important contribution to the success of the Group. At the beginning of 2015, Röchling Automotive had acquired a 3,000-square-meter property next to its site in the industrial area in Koprivnice, expanding the overall size of its premises to 31,000 square meters. This was followed by the expansion of the existing plant.

In total, the production area was expanded to 4,200 square meters; the logistics area now covers a total of over 6,500 square meters. A modern warehouse management system will be introduced in the logistics warehouse that will make technology-supported loading and unloading possible. Loading will now be done directly from three docks onto the trucks.

Röchling Automotive produces innovative plastic parts for automobile manufacturers for the underbody, engine compartment, air flap control, and air and water management. In addition, it produces innovative plastic tanks for the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) method, which reduces emissions from diesel engines. “The orders made additional storage and logistics space necessary as well as an expansion of the production facilities,” Plant Manager Hartmut Bischoff said. Investments were made in two new injection molding machines with a clamping force of 500 and 1,100 t, respectively. Mirror welding and test equipment are awaiting installation. In addition, by the end of this year another 500 t injection molding machine and two 2,700 t machines will be put into operation.
