Gurit Locates Competence Centre for Winter Sports Materials in Switzerland

03 October 2006

Gurit is locating its competence centre for winter sports materials to the Ittigen facility near Berne/Switzerland.

The Austrian Innsbruck plant will be phased out by the end of this year. Equipment continuing to produce winter sports materials is being transferred to Switzerland, while other equipment is relocated to the North American plant in Magog to serve the Wind Energy and Marine markets. A smaller production unit specialising in extruded products, located in Perrignier, France, and currently employing eleven people will also be integrated into the Ittigen facility and cease operations by the end of 2006. The transfer of the equipment will be completed by the end of January 2007.

Together with the main production centre, customer relations for Winter Sports activities will also be located in Switzerland, while the manufacture of sintered winter sports materials remains at the Gurit facility in Vreden/Germany.
