Leoni decided to build its Factory of the Future in Nuremberg’s outskirts – and thereby also to realise additional production capacity, more efficient processes as well as contemporary jobs. A key milestone has now been reached with the Company’s purchase of a 134,000 square meter site in the ‘An der Lände’ industrial area.
Buildings with space totalling 48,000 square meters are to be erected on the site. Expansion of specialised work that adds more value as well as optimising of work and logistical processes will be the basis for production that points the way to the future. Leoni’s ambition is to establish Europe’s most modern cable plant with its Factory of the Future.
This shall not only be a state-of-the-art production facility, but simultaneously a competence centre and a base for services for the entire Wire & Cable Solutions Division, too. The buildings will also comprise a laboratory and development centre as well as educational and an advanced training facility.
Now that the site has been purchased, the plans provide for construction to commence in mid 2016. Relocation to the Factory of the Future is likely to be completed in early 2019. (Source: Leoni)
