After more than 100 years, KraussMaffei will leave its Munich-Allach site in November 2022 and move its main plant and headquarters to Parsdorf, Germany. A ceremony was held to symbolically lay the foundation stone for the new site.


“Our plant in Parsdorf will be the KraussMaffei factory for the 21st century. It is part of the biggest investment and renewal program in the history of our company,” said Dr. Michael Ruf, CEO of KraussMaffei.


The move should be completed in 2023. The plant in Munich-Allach will be closed. KraussMaffei Automation in Schwaig is leaving its previous site and is also moving to Parsdorf.


In future, the corporate headquarters, the injection molding and reaction processing divisions, as well as the manufacturing and automation departments will be under one roof.


The laying of the foundation stone symbolizes the new KraussMaffei of the 21st century.


Superlative sustainability realized in an area of 250,000sqm


Up to 2,500 employees will be able to work at the new site on an area of 250,000sqm with modern workplaces in the administration, production, logistics and training centre. Initially, three new production halls, a customer experience centre, an administration building and two modern multi-storey car parks including e-loading stations will be built on the site.


Modern logistics, efficient work processes and consistent digitalization will increase productivity and make the site more attractive for employees. Future innovations in production and in the research and development of new products will also be easier to achieve.


At the new location in Parsdorf, the smart factory concept of the project developer will be realized, with sustainability and energy efficiency being the central parameters. A photovoltaic system, a combined heat and power unit, active hall ventilation and air conditioning, sprinkler systems, early fire detection and intelligent LED lighting, etc. will be included.


The new 250,000sqm plant will provide space for up to 2,500 workplaces in production, assembly and administration.


Four new plants by 2023


According to its plan, KraussMaffei will complete a total of four new plants by 2023, and two have already gone into operation. The company opened its new plant in JiaXing, China, in March and the new plant of its subsidiary Burgsmüller in Einbeck, Germany, recently.


The company also recently celebrated the laying of the foundation stone in Laatzen near Hannover, Germany.


“I would like to extend a special thank you to our Chinese owners. Without them, we would not be able to implement the renewal of our company and thus our growth plans,” remarked Dr. Michael Ruf.


The management of KraussMaffei: Dr. Volker Nilles (Executive Vice President New Machines), Nadine Despineux (Executive Vice President Digital Services & Solutions), Dr. Harald Nippel (CFO) and Dr. Michael Ruf (CEO).
