New assembly facility

Pöttinger's supervisory board have given the green light for the start of construction of a new assembly plant in St. Georgen near Grieskirchen, Austria, now that that building permission has been granted by the authorities.

The decision was made possible by the full commitment of the owners and members of the supervisory board, Heinz and Klaus Pöttinger.

The first construction stage will start in spring 2020. Assembly of the first round balers and large rakes will start in the new plant in 2021 at the latest. 

The company says the new plant guarantees the future-safe development of the company. Pöttinger say they have always had a clear view of the agricultural machinery market, which is subject to fluctuations. That is why the machinery manufacturer says they will gradually expand the plant in St. Georgen step-by-step.

"We are now working at full speed on the detailed planning and awarding of the contract for the first construction phase. The first stage of this modern construction project comprises around 6,300 sqm of workshop space, which can be flexibly extended," explains Jörg Lechner, managing director production and materials logistics.

The new building will be the new home to the assembly lines for round balers and large rakes. The investment project will be started in spring 2020, with this expansion stage amounting to approx. EUR 25 million
