HEITZ, the veneer edgebanding specialist, is officially commissioning plant expansion in the Hungarian town of Pusztaszabolcs. Employees, shareholders and representatives of the companies and authorities involved in the construction celebrated the official opening on 10th May.

Only seven months after the groundbreaking ceremony, Heitz commissioned the new machines in the 2000 square metre extension from February to April. In addition to increasing capacity and depth of refinement, existing facilities were also re-grouped to optimize warehousing and production processes.

"This is the biggest investment Heitz has ever made," said Stefan Wernecke, CEO of the Heitz Group, during his opening speech, thanking all staff for bringing the building and machinery to life successfully.

„From the third quarter onwards we will be more powerful and because we believe in our mutual success, we have already planned for a further expansion stage for the next few years”, he added with a wink.

Afterwards, the participants were treated to Hungarian music and culinary specialities.
