NEW TOP MODERN FACILITY IN GERMANY.
Semcon is building a new facility in Ingolstadt to provide even better service for the local car manufacturers and suppliers. With a total surface area of 5,400 m2, Semcon will have the capacity to perform a wide variety of engineering and advanced testing in one place while improving efficiency. The new site opens in July 2017.
“The new facility gives us an important platform for the future. Instead of four different sites in the Ingolstadt region, we are now gathering our operations into one large capacity facility,” says Udo Glenewinkel, President for the Engineering Services Germany business area.
“This means we can offer complete engineering solutions to our customers and help them to perfect their products for the end-user,” he adds.
The new site will be built in the highly expansive Interpark area in Ingolstadt, with good transport connections to many of Semcon´s customers. The total capacity comprises office space of 1,800 m2 for 125 workplaces and workshop space of 3,600 m2. Construction will begin in the autumn of 2016 and the building will be open for business from 1st July 2017.
Semcon is consolidating the various pieces of test equipment from the former project locations into the new site, and therefore will be able to test both full vehicles and components in one facility with improved efficiency. Together with top modern workplaces, generous parking and other conveniences, the building is designed to attract both new customers and employees.
“With this investment, Semcon underlines its role as a premium partner for the German automotive industry. We are excited about the possibilities that the new building will bring us,” says Udo Glenewinkel.
