Munich/Velden, 23 November 2020 - today, managing directors Dirk Konrad and Michael Leuchte, together with head administrator of the district of Landshut, Peter Dreier, took part in the ground-breaking ceremony for the construction of a new manufacturing plant for Schaltbau GmbH in the Bavarian town of Velden an der Vils.

The "NExT Factory", as the new plant is known internally, is being built in the high-technology location of Bavaria and will be one of the most advanced production sites of its kind going forward.
"The new plant represents another major step forward for the entire Schaltbau Group towards extending its leading market position in the safe switching of DC applications in the still emerging growth markets," said Dr Albrecht Köhler, CEO of Schaltbau Holding AG, describing the new project. "This investment will enable us to powerfully leverage our more than 90 years of expertise in manufacturing electromechanical components for the rail sector firmly on the road towards E-mobility and New Energy," Dr Köhler continued.
