Rubber processing machinery manufacturer Uth has invested a seven-digit euro sum in the construction of an assembly hall at its base in Fulda in the center of Germany. “Many new developments placed increased demands on our operational resources. For example, our newly developed two-roll plasticizer technology, weighing 40 metric tons, for the preparation of rubber compounds, brought us to our capacity limits,” explains MD Peter J Uth.
The investment has expanded the production area by around 1,100m2, to a total of around 10,000m2. Building work began in March and took around five months. The facility has been designed to enable flexible machine manufacturing. High product quality, ergonomics, sustainability and energy efficiency have also been considered in the building’s design. The hall is equipped with underfloor heating, the latest LED lighting technology and daylight-emitting light domes.
