KIRCHHEIMBOLANDEN, GERMANY – Ventec International Group completed the first phase of a $300,000 investment in its German Service Center here.
The initial phase focused on upgrading the 7,000 sq. ft. laminate cutting room with the installation and upgrade of power supply and extraction fittings, plus an additional diamond blade saw. The firm reportedly has achieved a two-fold increase in laminate cutting capacity as a result.
The next phase, due to be completed by the end of the first quarter next year, will see an upgraded clean room for prepreg penalization and the installation of an
aluminum coil cutting line to improve capability and increase capacity for drill entry materials.
“We are experiencing a significant growth in demand for our materials, so the investment in our German facility is key to achieving additional production capability, sustained quality assurance and continued reliability of on-time material delivery,” said Frank Lorentz, production manager and deputy general manager. “The refurbishment to date was expertly overseen by our mechanical engineer Mr. Matthias Rupp, and we are proud the facility upgrade was accomplished without affecting the delivery promise to our customers.”
