Physik Instrumente creates space for further manufacturing capacity
Additional administration building purchased
The additional investment of around 10 million euros for the acquisition of the building and conversion and expansion work complements the global investment package of 53 million euros already launched in 2021 for further capacity expansion. "The acquisition of the building will allow us to use more than 1,000 m² of space for additional workplaces in production. In addition, there is further space for office workstations," explains Markus Spanner, Managing Director of Physik Instrumente (PI) from.
PI is also pushing ahead with capacity expansion at the Eschbach and Lederhose sites in Germany and at its international locations. The expansion of the workforce is also well underway. As of the end of June, almost 100 of the additional 240 positions planned in Germany for 2022 have now been filled.
The company had already increased capacity by around 30 percent in 2021 and hired more than 170 new employees. All investments are the result of the "Maximum on-time Delivery" initiative with which PI is systematically improving its delivery capability.
