Extrusion equipment manufacturer Gneuss (Bad Oeynhausen, Germany) recently broke ground on a building that will add 2400 sq m of production and administration space. The facility is being built on part of a 13,000-sq-m parcel of land that the company purchased earlier this year adjacent to its existing site. Gneuss is also adding a floor to the current administration building, which will result in 700 sq m of new space. The combined expansion will increase production capacity for extruders, filtration systems, and measurement sensors by 50%, according to the company.

Extrusion company Gneuss girds for growth

Extrusion equipment manufacturer Gneuss (Bad Oeynhausen, Germany) recently broke ground on a building that will add 2400 sq m of production and administration space. The facility is being built on part of a 13,000-sq-m parcel of land that the company purchased earlier this year adjacent to its existing site. Gneuss is also adding a floor to the current administration building, which will result in 700 sq m of new space. The combined expansion will increase production capacity for extruders, filtration systems, and measurement sensors by 50%, according to the company.

Gneuss_Spatenstich-300.jpgGneuss has been on a growth curve for several years thanks to innovative products that are closely aligned with customer needs, the company explains in a press release. Integral to its customer-focused strategy, Gneuss successfully has transitioned from being a component supplier to establishing itself as a provider of complete production lines and system solutions.

Polyester processing has been a winning market for Gneuss, especially in applications involving recycled material. The company has also recorded increased interest in products related to polyolefin recycling, fibre and sheet manufacturing, special materials compounding, and foam sheet and insulation board manufacturing.

Earlier this year, the company announced the sale of a PET extrusion system to Sinea, a maker of plastic packaging and caps with facilities throughout South America. As reported in PlasticsToday, the technology allows mixed reclaim material to be processed and taken directly from the wash line through sheet extrusion.
