The foundation stone for the new premises in Laatzen was laid on September 3, 2020

On September the 3, Lower Saxony's Minister-President Stephan Weil, Laatzen's Mayor Jürgen Köhne, Jan Van Geet, Chairman of the VGP Board of Management, Dr. Michael Ruf, Chief Executive Officer of the KraussMaffei Group, and Dieter Thewes, Chief Operating Officer of KraussMaffei Extrusion GmbH, placed a time capsule into the foundation of a hall column. In the third quarter of 2022, up to 750 employees will be working here at innovative workplaces in order to produce extrusion systems for the plastics and rubber industries.

Special focus on InnovationCenter

Ultra-modern premises with impressive office and production areas will be built on the spacious site to combine KraussMaffei's extrusion business activities under a single roof. Special focus is placed on the new InnovationCenter that will be available for challenging and complex preliminary tests under realistic production conditions to customers from the plastics and rubber industries before they actually order a new machine from KraussMaffei. On a floor area of around 10,000 square meters, the InnovationCenter will comprise 20 state-of-the-art machines and lines – from small laboratory facilities up to production-scale machines – to be used for trial purposes. Completion is proceeding according to schedule.

“Here in Laatzen and also at our other locations in Germany and around the globe, we are committed to shaping the innovative future KraussMaffei in order to take on and meet the challenges of the 21st century with flying colors. Already in March, we opened our new plant located in JiaXing in China. A couple of weeks ago, we inaugurated the new plant of our Burgsmüller subsidiary in Einbeck. And the construction work for our new headquarters in Munich-Parsdorf has also been started. In a few days, we will celebrate the laying of the foundation stone there as well,” said Dr. Michael Ruf, Chief Executive Officer of the KraussMaffei Group on the occasion of the ceremony. “Our new premises in Laatzen will be our future extrusion and recycling technology center. 750 jobs will be created here – for highly trained skilled workers in metalworking and plastics specialists.”
