Plant Expansion of Zollner Headquarters Near Completion

Following the ‘Topping out’ ceremonies at the end of last year, the new production building is racing toward its completion.

Zollner Elektronik AG sent out invitations for the mid-December topping out ceremony. Structural work was completed in just nine months of construction time. Participating construction companies, representatives from the Administrative District Office in Cham, the entire village of Zandt and direct neighbors were present as Mr. Simml from Feldbauer company held his topping out speech. Manfred Zollner Sr. greeted the guests and thanked them for their wonderful cooperation in this project.

Excavation work to expand the company headquarters of Zollner Elektronik AG began in spring of 2017 in Zandt. Between March and November, a 12.500 m² production building was erected. Devices will be produced there in the future, which must conform to the requirements of the US Food and Drug Administration, FDA, which monitors all foodstuffs and medicines in the United States. The new building also has room for around 220 employees from production and office areas.

Interior construction is ongoing along with installation of technical building facilities and layout of the grounds. Move-in will take place in the second quarter of 2018.

The building not only has the most modern warehouse and production technologies, but is also secured with state-of-the-art access control technology. A safety battery warehouse, lean elevators, inductive shop-floor truck control technology, systems for early fire detection, energy efficient LED technology and industrial space heating were also installed. Clean and controlled environment room production will also be found there in order to be able to meet the ever-increasing demands of our customers and authorities.
