    Wacker Neuson SE: Construction starts on new Hörsching (Upper Austria)

    09.06.2011 / 10:23

    Wacker Neuson - construction starts on new Hörsching plant

    (Hörsching, Austria, June 8, 2011). A silver-spade ceremony marked the
    official beginning of construction at the new Wacker Neuson plant in
    Hörsching (Upper Austria). Work can begin right away as foundations have
    already been laid. According to the current schedule, the first compact
    equipment should be rolling off the production line as early as the
    beginning of May 2012.

    ´We are delighted to see construction work get underway, ´ says Martin
    Lehner, Deputy Chairman of the Wacker Neuson SE Executive Board and head of
    the compact equipment segment. ´Growing demand for our products has clearly
    stretched capacity at our Leonding plant to the limit, and this is
    accentuated by our strategic alliance with Caterpillar for the manufacture
    of excavators weighing up to 3 tonnes.´

    The new production plant is being built on a 160,000 m2 plot of land,
    giving Wacker Neuson huge scope to expand production capacity as needs
    evolve. It will also bring new jobs to the region. ´Our company is growing
    - not just in terms of revenue but also headcount. We currently employ 350
    people and will be creating many new job opportunities with the new plant, ´
    explains Johannes Mahringer, General Manager of Wacker Neuson Linz GmbH.

    Wacker Neuson is investing around EUR 65 million - including purchasing and
    developing the site - in what will be one of the largest, most modern
    plants for compact equipment in the world. The 16-hectare site in Hörsching
    is located next to the airport and will be home to a state-of-the-art
    production hall, with testing grounds and an administrative building. The
    buildings will stretch across approximately 50,000 m2. Johannes Mahringer
    continues: ´Optimized production processes and the latest technologies -
    such as a paint line with powder coating und a sand-blasting facility -
    will further increase the quality of our products and create additional
    efficiency gains.´
