DELFINGEN strengthens its presence in Germany

DELFINGEN strengthens its presence in Germany and inaugurates the extension of its plant in Marktrodach.

The new building of 1,900 square meters (nearly 20,500 square feet) incorporates an advanced logistics center and a production area dedicated to the manufacturing of textile sleeves.

Based in Germany since 2014 following the acquisition of Langendorf and MBG companies, DELFINGEN thus pursues its growth policy on this strategic automotive market.

Gérald Streit, DELFINGEN’s CEO, made the following statement: “Thanks to this extension, the plant’s surface is now over 18,000 square meters (194,000 square feet). This clearly shows our will to strengthen our presence on the German market as we can now significantly increase our production capacity of technical textile protection solutions. This investment reflects our commitment to be close to our customers in order to go even further in terms of flexibility, reactivity and customized service.”

Emmanuel Klinklin, Executive Vice President, said: “This inauguration was a great success and it is a demonstration of our commitment to exceed our customers’ expectations in terms of technical expertise, innovation and supply chain.”

The inauguration took place in presence of Bernard Streit, President of the DELFINGEN Group, Gérald Streit, the Executive Committee and co-workers along with representatives of the local authorities as well as many customers who joined to celebrate the event.

The ceremony was held in the respect of local traditions with customary blessings.
