VMI has opened its new manufacturing facility in Leszno, Poland. Lukasz Borowiak, mayor of Leszno, and Alexander van der Lof, chairman of the executive board, TKH Group, officially inaugurated the new factory last week.
The facility, built on an 8ha plot of land, comprises 13,500m2 of manufacturing floor space, warehousing and offices, with room for future capacity expansion. Construction took around eight months. Currently there are 70 employees – and this is expected to grow to over 150 before mid-2018.
The facility, which will help shorten the delivery time of equipment, is operated according to the latest Lean principles.
Harm Voortman, president and CEO of the VMI Group, commented, “This new manufacturing facility brings our global production capacity in line with current high order intake volumes and enables us to prepare for further growth.
“Our commitment to supply the market innovative solutions is clearly visible in this ultra-modern facility. We welcome the young and ambitious team of VMI Poland and wish them a lot of success.”
