Oerlikon Barmag: Topping-out ceremony for new pump production building
Oerlikon Barmag Topping-out ceremony for new pump production building
12.06.2020 A few weeks after the ground-breaking ceremony at the end of February 2020, Oerlikon Barmag, Chemnitz/Germany, a subsidiary of the Oerlikon Manmade Fibers segment of Oerlikon Management AG, Pfäffikon/Switzerland, celebrated the topping-out ceremony for the new pump construction production building at the site in Remscheid/Germany, despite the fact that the corona crisis has since set in and the framework conditions for the construction of the shell of the approx. 4,000 m² hall have become more difficult.
Starting in December 2020, the high-tech spinning, feed and metering pumps will then be manufactured and tested in the new hall. For this purpose, around 80 employees from the incoming goods, logistics and prefabrication departments will move into the new building with 40 machine tools. With this investment in the future, Oerlikon Barmag is setting new standards in the areas of profitability, process stability and logistics in pump construction.
