falch has approved the construction for a new production and logistics facility at our blaubeuren site.
reliable products, great service and satisfied customers are the best form of advertising. that's why falch's number of employees, turnover and market share has grown steadily over the past 33 years.
in order to meet the increased demand from germany and international markets for the long term future, a 6-storey building with a total area of 16,400 m² will be built. this will triple the existing production and storage areas at the headquarters of falch in blaubeuren-seissen. due to the state-of-the-art multi-storey construction method, as little green space as possible is used in blaubeuren, to ensure the facility has minimum impact on the local environment. the vacated rooms in merklingen will be utilised for further growth potential of our other departments: application technology, rental park, second-hand machines and service.
total investment in this project is expected to be around € 20 million, making it the largest single investment in falch's history. the number of employees at the blaubeuren location will increase from 70 today to around 170 in the next few years.
the construction is scheduled to begin in may 2019 and completed by the end of 2020. all interested parties can follow the construction progress live via a webcam on www.falch.com.
the falch management thanks all its employees, customers, suppliers and the city of blaubeuren for their continued support and cooperation.
