Inauguration of ZAHORANSKY’S New Plant in Spain
Tue October 25, 2016
Nearly 1½ years after the ground-breaking ceremony, ZAHORANSKY was able to inaugurate its new facility in Logroño, Spain. The entire Management Board of ZAHORANSKY GROUP as well as both GROUP Chairmen Ulrich Zahoransky and Gerhard Steinebrunner attended the opening ceremony on September 30, 2016. The Prime Minister of La Rioja, José Ignacio Ceniceros, and the Lord Mayoress of Logroño, Concepcion Gamarra, attended the event as guests of honor, as did the local Management Team as well as many clients and guests.
With the new plant ZAHORANSKY possess a modern and functional facility. It offers prime conditions for an efficient and state of the art machine assembly. The unsupported assembly hall without pillars has a surface area of 30 x 70 m. This doubles the production area to approximately 4,000 sqm. The expansion was necessary in order to meet the increasing demand for machines for household brushes, brooms and technical brushes. Approximately 2.5 million Euro were invested into the new factory building.
Several new members of staff have joined in preparation for the new building. 48 people currently work at the Logroño plant. There are plans to further increase the number of workplaces to up to 80 employees. Research and development in particular are to be expanded on-site. ZAHORANSKY offers excellent job opportunities to well-educated Engineers, who are easier to find in Spain. Regional politicians were especially grateful for the creation of apprenticeship positions for young people. In 2016 four young staff members were employed as apprentices and will now complete a two-year practical apprenticeship with the company.
The ZAHORANSKY GROUP owns six production plants worldwide. With their business divisions Mold Making, Machinery, Automation and Medical Technology, ZAHORANSKY is a full-line supplier of injection molding tools, brush and broom production machines, packaging machines and cross-system automated solutions.
