EV Group (EVG) has announced that it has started construction work for the next expansion phase of its corporate headquarters in St. Florian, Austria. The new, state-of-the-art building will house EVG's Manufacturing III facility, which will more than double the floor space for the final assembly of EVG's systems supporting semiconductor wafer bonding and lithography equipment requirements for a global manufacturing base.
"With our innovative manufacturing solutions for the high-tech industry as well as new biomedical applications, we operate in very dynamic markets with great future prospects," stated Dr. Werner Thallner, executive operations and financial director at EV Group. "In light of the high capacity utilization in all areas of our existing facilities, as well as the positive market outlook, we decided to implement our plans for building our Manufacturing III facility this year. This will support our long-term growth targets at our corporate headquarters."
EVG's new Manufacturing III building, adjacent to its new test room site that was opened a few months ago, will be built next to the river Inn. The ultramodern building will provide approximately 4,800 square meters of additional space in total, which will benefit not only manufacturing but also other departments. In addition to an expansion of warehouse space, a new delivery area with a dedicated packaging site designed for cleanroom equipment will be created, along with an airfreight security zone and new truck loading docks for the shipment of the completed systems to EVG's worldwide customers.
Construction of the new Manufacturing III building is set to be completed in early 2019.
