Wittmann Battenfeld on The Road to Success
Extension in France
For Wittmann Battenfeld France SAS, the French subsidiary of the Wittmann Group, 2017 was the most successful year so far in its entire corporate history. The sales increased by 14% compared to the previous year, and the growth in order volume was even more dramatic. The increases occurred across all product segments, with substantial growth being realized especially in the sectors of granulators, robots and automation systems, with a corresponding increase in market shares in France.
As an appropriate response to this positive trend, a piece of land situated in the immediate vicinity of the existing company site has been acquired in Moirans, which will now serve as the basis for an extension of the existing production floor space. Planning for the new facilities to be constructed there is in full swing. The planned new factory and office building will have more than 5,000 m2 of usable floor space. The total amount of investment for this project will be more than 5 million Euros. Groundbreaking for the new French headquarters is expected to take place at the end of June this year. Completion of and relocation to the new building are planned for March 2019.
On May 1 2018, Wittmann Battenfeld France SAS also had a change at the top: Fabien Chambon has taken over the general management of Wittmann Battenfeld France from his predecessor Thierry Pétra.
