The international plastics processor company Ensinger invests in extending their production and logistics facilities at its German producing site in Cham (Germany), which was put into operation ten years ago. The new building plans are the second construction project in the branch factory.

Miebach Consulting supported Ensinger's expansion project by designing the site masterplan as well as the material flow processes and assisted Ensinger in tendering and awarding the material handling equipment. Furthermore, Miebach conducted in the beginning of the project an as-is analysis and developed the future scenario for the site, including a detailed analysis of the development in different product segments.

"With the enhanced manufacturing and highly centralized logistics processes, Ensinger strengthens their manufacturing location in Cham, increases the efficiency of their logistics processes and floor space and develops a great growth perspective while having limited space available" - says Miebach project manager Dr. Frank Hohenstein. In logistics an improved space utilization by approx. 30% in the next ten years is expected and crucial for further growth in manufacturing.

The costs for the new buildings and all infrastructure measures will amount to around 40 million euros in total. "All divisions at the Cham plant will benefit from these investments, as will the corporate group. By expanding production capacities, Ensinger is creating the right conditions for long-term growth at the site", says Andreas Alsfasser; as Technical Director at Ensinger he is coordinating the construction projects. Based on current plans, the final work at the site should be completed by summer 2019.
