BRÜCKNER invests in new production site
The building works for the new production site of the German textile machinery producer BRÜCKNER has begun this month (September), where the company is investing Euro 40 million in total in estate, buildings and machinery. The completion is planned for the end of 2017.
Since 1960 the production site of the German producer of textile machinery BRÜCKNER is located in the Bavarian town Tittmoning. With about 180 employees and workers at this site the company produces every year about 120 machines and lines 95 per cent of which are exported all around the globe. The main administration of the medium-sized company is with almost 200 employees located in Leonberg near Stuttgart. It includes the divisions Research, Design Engineering, Sales, Marketing, Service, Spare Parts, Material Management, IT as well as Human Resources and Accounting.
In 2004 the production of smaller machine components in Leonberg was completely moved to Tittmoning in order to optimise the order workflow. This change allowed to create a big Technology Centre in Leonberg where customers can test several BRÜCKNER machines and develop their textile products further.
The requirements for textile machinery and their functions have extremely changed in the last years. As a result the machines and lines are getting larger and more complexand since the extension possibilities of the current site are limited, BRÜCKNER decided to build a completely new production site at the outskirts of Tittmoning.
