Saertex MultiCom is expanding the facilities of its Saerbeck plant to meet with the increases in orders they have received in recent years.
New operating premises are gradually being built on the Saertex-owned neighbouring property with its 25,000 square metres, including 11,000 square metres of manufacturing and office space. After the beginning of construction in September 2010, the first phase has now been completed, covering some 4,500 square metres. This first hall will focus on the impregnation of pipe liners and will have three impregnation lines. “The new, third impregnation line will be set up first. As well as gaining an enormous increase in production capacity, this new and larger facility will enable us to impregnate GRP pipe liners of up to DN 1500,” says Norbert Osterhoff, Operations Manager at Saertex MultiCom.
