No, that’s not one of Confucius’ sayings (he talked about a journey of 1,000 miles). It’s one of mine. A nod to Con­fu­cius is pretty apt though, as the ground­breaking ceremony of our new man­u­fac­turing plant marks the beginning of a journey into the future.

If you’ve visited us in Trossingen recently, you will have noticed that things are getting a bit cramped around here. That’s why we decided to construct a new, functional com­pany building near our current location.

In the future, this 5,000 m2 area will be home to a production hall, offices and a large demonstration center. Once we’ve moved into the new building, we’ll be using repe­titive flow production, i.e. series production, in its air-conditioned manu­fact­uring hall. This process ensures a better overview and improved trans­parency with regard to the flows of material and information. With it, we aim to achieve higher throughput, shorter delivery times 😉 and greater process reliability for the construction of our Multigrind® grinding machines. The temperature-controlled manufacturing hall will also help us boost our performance in terms of precision. After all, Haas customers want grinding machines that grind with micrometer accuracy. Another technical highlight of our new building at Adelbert-Haas-Straße 1 is the environmentally-friendly heat recovery throughout the entire building. Our goal is to use air to water heat pumps so that virtually no additional energy will be required for heating and cooling.

If you’d like to keep an eye on how the construction is going, simply visit us here at the Schleifblog! But for now, here are some more photos from the groundbreaking ceremony on 7 November 2012.

Building with attitude!
