The new production hall of 1000 m2 was officially opened on 1st July 2016 at a summer company party for all employees.
After only 7 months of construction time from planning to finish operation in the new production hall with a capacity of about 1000m2 will start as scheduled on 1st July. The management invited all 460 employees at Fernwald to the official opening at a summer company party to celebrate this achievement.
The new building, which is connected to an existing hall is built of pre-assembled ferroconcrete parts and corresponds to the recent regulations for heat insulation. A big panoramic window enables assembly work in daylight; three fast run gates reduce loading time, as the trucks can drive directly into the hall. The machines can be loaded from the new installation site directly onto the trucks.20 people will be mounting and testing vertical baggers and end-of-line machines in the new hall, where complete packaging lines can be implemented now before they are delivered to the customer. A 12 t crane and a 15 t crane are mounted from the ceiling and facilitate transport during the production flow.
In phase 2 an outbuilding with an office for foremen and a social area for the employees will be joined to the hall during 2017.
The expansion of production capacity was necessary to come up to the positive order trend. Further expansion stages are planned according to the development of business.
In 2010, the company had a turnover of € 36 million and 280 employees. This year orders of € 90 million are expected. At the same time the staffing level has doubled from 282 to approximately 580 people worldwide.
„So much growth needs space“, said Thomas Becker, CEO of Rovema GmbH, “which we will create gradually”. At the end the production area should have grown by 3000 up to 5000 square meters.
High innovative capacity combined with technological expertise, long lasting customer loyalty and acceptance, as well as the extensive know-how of experienced staff guarantee, according to Becker, sustained future growth.
