Optimisation of delivery performance and quality through insourcing
With an investment of 3.8 million euros, the SIEGENIA GROUP is increasing its depth of production at the Niederdelfen site. After the integration of galvanizing technology by the construction of an electroplating plant in 2016, the corporate group is currently setting up a new production plant for PVC components. The state-of-the-art, energy-efficient production and assembly plants strengthen the production and logistics processes of the company and prove their commitment to the German site.
"By insourcing the production processes, we are strengthening and enhancing the quality of our TITAN hardware, increasing our reaction capability and improving our delivery performance. Our extensive know-how with regard to plant, production processes and tooling works in our favour", reported Florian Eisermann, Site Manager of TITAN/ALU at SIEGENIA. Investment in the future is also linked to the creation of new jobs.
Integrated in the production flow
The setup of the new production area for PVC components comprises the erection and commissioning of a total of 20 injection moulding machines, an automatic press and three automatic assembly plants. The latter assemble components immediately after their completion into saleable TITAN hardware components. For this purpose, the newly setup area has been positioned in the hardware production area of SIEGENIA to fit in with the production flow. "Our paths are extremely short due to the integration in the production flow – in most cases we have direct access to the required components. This ensures short reaction times, even when there are unforeseen fluctuations in demand, fortifies our high standard of production and increases our competitiveness", explained Florian Eisermann. The expansion of production at SIEGENIA is being implemented in two steps. The first step will be completed in December; the second step will follow in 2020.
