Augsburg, November 2015 – AUWA chemicals invests more than five million euros in the future
By expanding its production facilities in Grebenau, the WashTec subsidiary AUWA is further strengthening its position as the market leader for professional car wash chemicals in Europe and is creating new jobs for the region in the process. The number of employees will increase considerably. The purchase of a 16,000 square metre site lays the foundation for this expansion. Development commenced on 12 April 2016.
‘Over the last few years, we have recorded constant growth in our chemicals business division. To facilitate further growth, it was necessary to expand our production in Grebenau,’ explains Christoph Maletz, Business Director Chemicals & Water Recycling at WashTec. This will thus see AUWA concentrating its production in future at one site. Customers also stand to benefit from this development, which will see AUWA increasing its production capacity and delivery capacity and speeding up workflows. This will in turn increase our throughput and create greater flexibility. The plan involves doubling production and modernising our systems with new fully automated filling lines.
