The key to the new KraussMaffei
| Birgit Berger

The move from Hanover to Laatzen has begun

After two years of construction, KraussMaffei has received the keys from building owner VGP. The first systems have already been brought to Laatzen - another milestone on the way to the new KraussMaffei.

Covering an area of around 97,000 m², the plant offers space for modern office and production buildings as well as an innovative Customer Experience Center for customers and visitors.

In the new Laatzen plant, all extrusion technologies – from pipe and profile extrusion through sheet and flat film extrusion to rubber and foam extrusion – as well as compounding and recycling technologies are combined at a single location

For 103 years, KraussMaffei Extrusion, formerly Berstorff, had its site "An der Breiten Wiese" in Hanover. Now the first machines left the gates of the old plant and were set up in the production hall at the new location.

We are delighted that the first machines have been successfully moved from Hanover to Laatzen. This is not only the start of the relocation, but also the beginning of a new chapter for KraussMaffei Extrusion

The relocation of the site is expected to be completed in December. Production will be maintained throughout the relocation.
