Kitchen furniture specialist Rotpunkt is expanding its factory in Preußisch Oldendorf-Getmold, Germany, to increase its manufacturing capabilities.
The 5,000sq m expansion, which is due for completion in time for the annual Hausmesse showcase in September, will see the brand’s second site grow to a 20,000sq m production facility.
As part of the move, Rotpunkt has invested in a fully automatic storage system to feed new saws. The additional space will also enable the brand to take stock of raw materials, which will also help improve productivity.
Speaking about the expansion, Matt Phillips (pictured), head of UK operations at Rotpunkt UK, said: “We are delighted to show the first phase of this expansion, which demonstrates our want for continued business and product development. We have instigated these improvements to help the brand become even more flexible than it already is, offering a wider choice of quality product – a logical consequence of the success and growth we’ve achieved over the past 87 years in business.”
