Acquisitions in hand, Hahn continues growth plans

The manufacturer of assembly automation defended against the downturn of 2008/2009 by expanding, including two acquisitions of robot manufacturers, and now the company is pushing its internal growth with the expansion of its production capacity in its main plant in Germany and its site in Hebron, Kentucky.

Hahn expansion

Management at Hahn Automation has stayed busy. Through the acquisitions of Remak Maschinenbau GmbH (Reinheim, Germany), a manufacturer of linear robots and mold temperature controls, and the robot manufacturing unit of Swiss GHS Automation AG (Schwarzenburg, Switzerland), the company was able to significantly expand its portfolio, as it intends to make clear at this year's K show in Düsseldorf, Germany. Hahn also now has a cooperation agreement with the Dutch company EAS Europe BV, which makes rapid clamping, media couplings and tool change systems.

Now, Hahn is turning to internal growth, specifically of its production facilities in Germany and in the U.S. By the end of November 2010 a two-story extension with a production area of 1700m² will be added to its headquarters in Rheinböllen, Germany, with about 1400m² of that planned for the concentration and expansion of CNC manufacturing of components, with the remaining space offering increased warehouse space.

In the U.S., Hahn has moved out of a building it shared and moved into its own 2000m² facility, with offices and production, in effect doubling its available space. [email protected]
