Picture above: Extension (planned) – North-east elevation of the planned extension to production and logistics facilities at the Cham site. In the course of the plant expansion, all the divisions located at the site will receive additional space. In Cham, Ensinger manufactures machined prefabricated components, stock shapes from cast polyamide, insulating profiles for windows, doors and façades and also spacers for insulating glass.

Extension of production and logistics areas in German branch factory

Ensinger is about to make a further investment at its Cham site. The plastics processor is planning to extend a production and logistics building that was put into operation ten years ago. These new building plans are the second construction project in the branch factory. A few weeks ago, Ensinger began the construction of a hall which, in the future, will house the compounding lines and parts of the logistics facilities.

In Cham, Ensinger manufactures machined prefabricated components, stock shapes from cast polyamide, insulating profiles for windows, doors and façades and also spacers for insulating glass. With the modular plant extension, all corporate divisions located at the site will receive additional production, warehouse and office space.

Compounding (under construction) – South-east elevation of the building already under construction. This new building will house, among other things, compounding lines and logistics areas. In the compounding process, the high-performance plastics are optimised for their intended application with the aid of fillers or additives.

The two current projects comprise of further features, including the construction of a new power centre and expansion of the central plant infrastructure. The fully automated high bay warehouse, which serves as a dynamic production buffer, is also to be made bigger.

Commitment to the site
The costs for the new buildings and all the infrastructure measures will amount to around 40 million euros in total. “All the divisions at the Cham plant will benefit from these investments, as will the corporate group. By expanding production capacities, Ensinger is creating the right conditions for long-term growth at the site”, says Andreas Alsfasser; as Technical Director at Ensinger, he is coordinating the construction projects. Based on current plans, the final work at the site should be completed in summer 2019.

The Cham site was founded in 1980 and has continued to grow rapidly ever since. The plant, located in the Altenmarkt industrial park, is one of the biggest production facilities of international plastics processor Ensinger. The wide range of products manufactured in Cham are used in nearly all important sectors of industry, be this mechanical engineering, the construction industry, medical technology or the food industry.
