Groundbreaking at Teknor Apex’s Rothenburg site

On 24 October 2018, Teknor Apex celebrated the groundbreaking for its new plant in Rothenburg, Germany. From spring 2020, the new 15,000 m2 plant will not only offer a considerable increase in capacity, but also the extensive functionality of an R+D laboratory and an application technology centre. It will also serve as an European technology centre for Teknor Apex. The current production facility in nearby Steinsfeld and the sales and marketing location in Tauberzell will be relocated to Rothenburg. The company currently employs 130 people in Germany.

“Our customers in Europe benefit from the global potential of Teknor Apex and its extensive experience in industrial markets such as automotive, electronics and medical,” said Walter Baumann, Managing Director of Teknor Germany GmbH. “As a manufacturer of tailor-made compounds, Teknor Apex maintains close relationships with its customers and, as a family business, attaches great importance to its employees and the environment in which it operates.” And Jonathan D. Fain, CEO of Teknor Apex, added: “Our investment in Rothenburg ob der Tauber strengthens the growth of Teknor Apex on the European market. This will significantly improve both the comprehensive service and the technical support for our local customers. The new plant will act as an innovation hub, manufacturing new products and supporting customers in all phases of application development.”
