Groundbreaking of New Office & Production Facilities
Our infrastructure project, which began in 2017 with the construction of a new high-bay warehouse, is continuing with new office building and production expansion, ensuring that we are positioned to take on both today's and tomorrow's challenges.
On Tuesday, Managing Directors Heinz Schmid, Jakob Breuer and Georg Heftberger met with Peter and Christoph Greiner of the Family Council of Greiner AG and the Frickenhausen Mayor Simon Blessing for the symbolic groundbreaking ceremony of our new office and production facilities.
We are investing a total of nearly 20 million Euros at our Frickenhausen site in optimised plant infrastructure, material supply and logistics, as well as a 30 percent increase in production capacity.
Modern Plant, Simplified Communication
By the end of September 2020, not only will the new office building be completed, but also the production area will be expanded by over 1,700 square meters. Thanks to the new high-bay warehouse, the old logistics areas can be converted for production. Distributed on two levels, special products for the cultivation and analysis of cell and tissue cultures made of plastic are produced in the automated state-of-the-art facility. In addition, an integrated ISO5 clean room cell for CELLCOAT production and a state-of-the-art roller bottle and tube system will also be created.
Prerequisite for Growth
In the course of the infrastructure project, the modernisation of the existing buildings as well as a redesign of the company premises are planned. 30 bicycle parking spaces will be created plus a new routing system for public transport. In addition to the current 330 employees, 40 new jobs are planned for the coming years.
Managing Director Heinz Schmid: "The infrastructure project creates the conditions for further growth at this location. Both in production and in administration, the company has reached its capacity limits. With its new high-bay warehouse, new office building and enlarged and modernized production, Greiner Bio-One is perfectly positioned for today's and tomorrow's challenges."
