Paul Leibinger GmbH & Co. KG is expanding its industrial inkjet printer product area at its headquarters in Tuttlingen with a total investment volume of eight million euros. In addition to building a new production hall, a subtenant is moving out, creating more space for the existing service and administration area.
The specialist for industrial marking and coding systems and verification solutions is expanding its headquarters by more than 30 percent this year. The expansion primarily focuses on developing the production area for the JET3 and JET2neo series of inkjet printers. The new production hall will further expand the extensive production depth that already exists. The investment showcases the management's bolstered drive for product manufacturing that is truly made in Germany. "We are increasing our flexibility, quality and productivity, which is reflected in even more extensive control over end products and their properties," reported CEO Christina Leibinger. "This ultimately benefits the customer through exceptionally reliable products."
The new production hall covering 2,200 m² represents the largest part of the company's expansion; the building is expected to be ready in fall. This is in addition to another 1,650 m2 from Hermle-Leibinger Systemtechnik GmbH moving out of the administrative wing. The investments are Paul LEIBINGER's response to the outstanding business performance in recent years. The company was able to increase sales volume by 23 percent in 2013 alone. Volume in the first quarter of 2014 has already increased 12 percent compared to the same period in the previous year. "Expanding the site was essential to keeping pace with growth," explained Christina Leibinger. This expansion will also entail new hires in Production, Sales as well as Research and Development with the goal of further increasing the product quality of LEIBINGER printers and promoting innovation. A training classroom and a new showroom for industrial inkjet printers are also in the works. This will give customers and distributors the opportunity to interact with and explore all current models as well as to familiarize themselves with the functions of the printers and test them in depth.
