Drutex has completed the investment connected with the construction of the second stage of the European Woodwork Center. Hundreds of new jobs will be created in the second part of the production hall covering more than 25 000 square meters and production capacity will ultimately increase from 7 thousand to 10 thousand windows a day. The investment will enable further automation and optimization of operations.
The completed investment is the second part of the huge production hall built within the European Woodwork Center. The first part, that was built in 2014 with production and office space, covers more than 30 000 m2. Right now PVC window and door systems are manufactured there, as well as composite glass and hardened glass.
Currently, modern machines for production of PVC windows and doors and lines for manufacturing of composite glass are being installed in the new operational 2nd part of the production hall that is 120 m x 194 m big. There is also own research laboratory used for testing woodwork quality, equipped with cutting-edge machines. The first floor will hold office space, conference rooms and the company showroom.
The second stage of the European Woodwork Center constitutes another milestone in the company development, since it gives us extra production capacity when it comes to increasing the potential, as well as enhancing our product range. The innovative space that complies with production needs, completed with staff facilities, will definitely facilitate all internal and external processes in the company. It is a step towards bigger optimization of our operations and increasing efficiency. The new part of the hall is not our last investment of this kind. We already know that it is still not enough and therefore we are planning further factory enlargement. Especially that sales results in Poland and abroad motivate us to undertaking other investments and do not let us rest on our laurels, says Leszek Gierszewski, the president of Drutex S.A.
The European Woodwork Center covers the area of more than 91 000 square meters. The company produces PVC woodwork, as well as aluminum and wood windows and doors, wood and aluminum systems, roller shutters, PVC profiles and composite glass. Big production capacity, combined with speed of operations and the 7-day delivery all over Europe, give the company the position of the leading player in Europe. Innovations and investments that just in the last three years have exceeded 220 million PLN, allow for a dynamic increase in sales figures. Drutex closed last year with income of 620 PLN and more than 19% sales increase.
