247TailorSteel builds third factory in Germany
247TailorSteel is expanding its activities in Germany further. A few months ago, 247TailorSteel opened a new factory in Hilden close to Düsseldorf. That factory is now up and running, serving customers in North Rhine-Westphalia and the surrounding regions. Today, we are pleased to announce the construction of a third production facility in Germany.
The new production facility will be built in Langenau (in southern Germany, between Stuttgart and Munich) and will initially have a capacity of 4 laser machines, 3 tube laser machines and 4 bending machines. The 15,000 m2 factory is to be built on a site of over 36,000 m2 and will eventually employ 200 people. Further machinery will be installed in phases in Langenau, bringing the total capacity up to 12 laser machines, 10 tube laser machines and 12 bending machines. Construction is scheduled to start in the second half of 2021 and the factory will be fully operational in the autumn of 2022.
This development will help us achieve our growth ambitions and strengthen our brand and position in the market. The new factory strengthens our local presence and brings us even closer to achieving our goal of serving customers within a radius of 200 kilometres. When the new location opens, we will be able to offer our customers in Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria and Austria even more convenience and deliver our high-quality products even faster. Using our Sophia® portal, customers can place their orders online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, receive a quote in just one minute and arrange delivery of their products within 48 hours.
