Hansgrohe Boosts German Production Sites and Jobs

Hansgrohe SE invests EUR 30 million in the construction of a plastic electroplating facility at its Offenburg production site

Hansgrohe SE continues to expand and invest in Germany. In the past decade alone, Hansgrohe has invested about EUR 100 million in its German Offenburg and Schiltach production sites. The globally active mixer and shower manufacturer is now investing roughly EUR 30 million in the construction of a new electroplating facility at the company’s existing production site in Offenburg-Elgersweier. Upon completion, the facility will more than double the plant’s annual output of electroplated plastic products. “We are one of the companies who in recent years, have most heavily invested here in Offenburg and the surrounding region,” says Thorsten Klapproth, Chairman of the Executive Board of Hansgrohe SE. Today Frank Schnatz, Director of Product Development, Production and Quality Management, together with Baerbel Schaefer, District President of the administrative region of Freiburg, and Edith Schreiner, Mayor of Offenburg, laid the cornerstone of Hansgrohe’s forward-looking project.

Capacity for further growth

“The products of our two brands AXOR and hansgrohe are in great demand. Our turnover has risen by an average of six per cent annually over the past ten years; last year, for the first time ever, we generated more than one billion euros in sales. With our new electroplating facility, we will create capacity for further growth and significantly strengthen our competitive edge – the basis for our success worldwide,” says Thorsten Klapproth. “This investment confirms our commitment to Germany and the region. In addition to our ultra-modern logistics centre, which went into operation in late 2016, we have optimal procurement, production and customer logistics at the Offenburg site, enabling us to respond to changing customer needs with maximum efficiency. With this multi-million-euro investment, we are sending an important signal to our customers around the world; and as an employer, we are confirming our commitment to jobs in the Ortenau region.”
