Bekum Group announced that the reorganization in Germany and Austria was successfully completed in Spring 2016 as planned.

The Production division, which includes machine assembly, shipping, procurement, work preparation and warehousing, has moved to Traismauer, Austria, about 60km from Vienna.

More than €5 million were invested in the expansion of the Traismauer site, including the addition of assembly and office space as well as a new central warehouse.

The aim was to consolidate the European manufacturing of extrusion blow molding machines at a single site, according to the company. While previously only large blow molding machines were built in Traismauer, now smaller packaging machines will be built in the 16,000sqm space.

"The reorganization provided us with the basis for excellent market positioning. From our perspective, the reorganization results in considerable synergies not only on the cost side but by pooling expertise and experience. As a pioneer and technology leader, we have repositioned ourselves to continue shaping extrusion blow molding through innovation and high-end products for the future," said Andreas Kandt, CEO of Bekum.

In Berlin, Germany, Bekum moved into new headquarters in mid-April 2016, grouping together the areas of sales and marketing, development and design, as well as technical service and spare parts distribution.

"With approximately 16,000 Bekum blow molding machines delivered worldwide, we have a great responsibility to support our customers in their production tasks competently and, above all, quickly," Kandt stated.

New orders were received in Eastern Europe and the Middle East for mostly small and medium-sized machines for the packaging industry, the company said. They are now being delivered from the Traismauer factory.

The company also saw success in the automotive segment. Large orders were gained from Volkswagen (VW) in Wolfsburg, Germany, as well as from production facilities of Fiat in Italy and Brazil.

These projects involve several single-station and double-station tank blow molding machines for producing co-extruded six-layer or seven-layer fuel tanks with In-mold deflashing (IMD) and (hip in the bottle (SIB) technology, Bekum revealed.
