VMI opens manufacturing facility in Poland
VMI has officially opened its new manufacturing facility in Leszno, Poland. The building inauguration was attended by Lukasz Borowiak, mayor of Leszno and Alexander van der Lof, chairman of the executive board of TKH Group.
The facility, which produces according to the latest Lean principles, is built on an eight hectare plot of land and comprises 13,500 m2 of manufacturing floor space, warehousing and offices. The facility offers employment to 70 people and is expected to grow to over 150 employees before mid 2018.
The new facility helps shorten the delivery time of VMI’s high end equipment, while maintaining a competitive cost level, the company says. It operates next to the existing sites of the VMI Group, which now has entities in eight countries on four continents.
Harm Voortman, president and CEO of VMI Group, said: “This new manufacturing facility brings our global production capacity in line with current high order intake volumes and enables us to prepare for further growth. Our commitment to supply the market innovative solutions is clearly visible in this ultra-modern facility. We welcome the young and ambitious team of VMI Poland and wish them a lot of success.”
