With the construction of a new assembly hall, UTH GmbH has recently invested a seven-digit sum in its headquarters in Fulda, Germany. The new building represents a step further in the growth strategy of the engineering company for its production site in the centre of Germany.
The company’s core competencies lie in manufacturing rubber processing machinery. They specialize in large machines for the gear pump technology sector and fine mesh straining solutions. Over the years, Uth GmbH has consistently provided innovative solutions and intelligent technologies to meet the continuously increasing demands of the rubber, tire and silicone industry. “Many new developments placed increased demands on our operational resources. For example, our newly developed TRP technology (two-roll plasticizer), weighted at 40 tonnes, is designed for the preparation of rubber compounds and had brought us to our capacity limits.” explains Managing Director Peter J. Uth.
On the 7th of March, 2017 UTH GmbH broke ground and laid the foundation for its new assembly hall. After a short construction time of five months, the hall was inaugurated at the end of August. The expansion of the assembly area at the company’s headquarters is a clear commitment to the production in Germany although the manufacturer’s international focus with 80 percent exports share as well as branches in China and India. “We want to continue producing and distributing quality machines worldwide which are made in Germany and meet the highest standards. We continuously focus on the research and development of our innovative products in order to further expand our position on the global market.” says Uth.
The investment results in an additional production area of around 1.100 sqm . The new building was designed according to the latest standards for simultaneous and flexible machine manufacturing. Now machinery weighing up to 25 tonnes can be moved. High product quality, ergonomics, sustainability and energy efficiency also play an important role. For example, the hall is equipped with underfloor heating, the latest LED lighting technology and daylight-emitting light domes. The new building expands the total area to around 10.000 sqm.
