More space for packaging lines

New company building for long-term growth

Theegarten-Pactec is embarking on a new construction project. The existing company site in Dresden (Germany) is being expanded to 50,000 m². The ground-breaking ceremony for the all-new building complex, which will accommodate production facilities and office space, will take place in spring 2014. The total investment amounts to over €30 million.

“We have outgrown our existing premises,” explained Managing Director Markus Rustler. “The additional floor space is a fundamental resource in terms of our long-term growth objectives. Not only do the premises provide us with more space, they are also optimally tailored to our production programme. We already meet great demand as a system provider and orders for packaging lines are set to continue to increase,” he added.

The previous buildings were geared towards the production of large series of individual models. The emphasis today is on small series combined with complete automated feeding and distribution lines. The new facility will enable the required organisational structure to be established and will ensure manufacturing based on a short-distances model.

A 15% growth buffer compared to current requirements has been provided for in terms of office and production space. Theegarten-Pactec expects to be creating up to 50 new jobs. The company currently employs 350 staff. Moreover, additional free building land takes account of the next stage of future growth.

The project, which is set for completion by mid-2017, is sub-divided into several construction phases. In-depth planning will enable relocation to be carried out in stages while operations remain on-going without major disturbance. “The project represents a huge challenge for us alongside our day-to-day business activities. But we are looking forward to tackling it as it will enable us to secure our future. Our aim is to supply the best machines and lines for our customers in line with their requirements over the long-term,” remarked Rustler, outlining the company’s objectives.
