KraussMaffei to expand production plants in Slovakia and China

"The KraussMaffei Group is growing. In order to strengthen our activities in core markets and in emerging markets, we have decided to expand our production plants in Martin (Slovakia) and Haiyan (China)", explained Dr. Dietmar Straub, CEO of KraussMaffei AG. In Haiyan, the previous production area of 12,000 m2 will be increased to around 22,000 m2. In addition to the expansion of existing production capacities for machines and plants for reaction and extrusion technology, Netstal and KraussMaffei injection moulding machines for PET applications and injection molding machines of the MX series will also be produced here. In the production plant in Martin, which was put into operation only in autumn 2010, robots and injection moulding machines of the EX series as well as machines and plants for reaction and trimming technology will in future be produced on a production surface area of around 13,000 m2 (today: 6,600 m2). At present, injection moulding machines of the AX series as well as switch cabinets and moulds are manufactured at this location.
