ILLIG grows

ILLIG grows and expands production capacity outside Germany

Further location: ILLIG Maschinenbau SRL– First construction phase in 2019

Heilbronn, October 2018. – ILLIG, the German machinery manufacturer, will build a new production site in Romania. During the next few years ILLIG Maschinenbau SRL will develop into a further production site outside Germany located in Sura Mica industrial park in the Sibiu region. „At the new site ILLIG will be manufacturing thermoforming lines from its product range to ensure increasing market demands can be met“, Dr. Heinrich Sielemann, ILLIG managing director, substantiates the expansion. In 2019, the first office buildings and production halls will be constructed in a first construction phase on a surface of 60,000 square meters. On-site personnel recruitment was started with the intent to prepare the new staff members at the Heilbronn central site for their new tasks. Moreover, ILLIG intends to sustainably become involved in the training of qualified staff on site. The existing Romanian dual vocational training system and a cooperation with the Sibiu University are suitable options to achieve this goal.
