Summer Festival and inauguration of the new production facility

Germany – “Never pass up the chance of a party” is great advice, but there are some occasions that are truly worthy of celebration. The 6th July 2018 ticked all the boxes! The hot and sunny Friday was perfect for KLOTZ' legendary summer party, and for the inauguration of a new production facility at the Vilchband plant near Würzburg. Two great reasons to let our hair down! Many friends of Klotz joined our employees to party the night away and enjoy delicious food and drinks.

A musical treat was provided by KLOTZ artist Jessica Lynn and her band. Lynn is hailed as the new shooting star of country in her homeland of the USA, and a worthy successor to Shania Twain. Luckily she and her band happened to be on a European tour, and were persuaded to make a detour away from the big city lights to play for KLOTZ!

KLOTZ AIS GmbH is continuing its course of growth; it has invested in expanding production and storage facilities by 1,200 sqm to a total of approximately. 4000 sqm, enabling the company to meet rising demand its products while complying with its signature high quality standards. The newly constructed premade cable hall is the centrepiece of the site expansion and is considered the pride and joy! Its 18 cable assembly workplaces have been designed to state-of-the-art ergonomic standards and are supplied by the roller conveyor – likewise brand-new – which brings in materials from the cable cutting hall next door. LED lighting, radiant tube heating that creates a pleasant working atmosphere and high-efficiency extraction systems at the soldering stations are just some of the ways in which working life has been made easier for the employees. By merging cable cutting and assembly operations, KLOTZ introduced numerous improvements in processes and workflows. Production capacity doubled as a result, with the help of a new rewinding unit, the new cutting attachment and a new semi-automatic packaging unit. On this special day, KLOTZ naturally treated its guests to a look behind the scenes on a tour of the plant. The visitors gained an impression of how the 100-plus workforce creates and safeguards the hallmark 'Made in Germany' quality.
