With a €12 million investment, the supplier for the manufacture of high-performance card clothings for textile yarn processing, Trützschler Card Clothing (TCC), is expanding its production, warehouse and office capacities. The move into the new building is planned for 2024.
Trützschler Card Clothing GmbH, Neubulach/Germany, a business unit (BU) of Trützschler Group SE, Mönchengladbach/Germany, will also expand the range of services and the production intensity at the site in Neubulach, while optimizing the process flows.
The new building will expand the warehouse and logistics area by 600 m², to make a total area of 2,800 m². In the optimized cube of the new hall, a modern warehouse system will double the storage capacity. There will also be a fully automated warehouse for coils for sawtooth wires. During the construction phase, logistics and shipping will be temporarily outsourced to Pforzheim-Büchenbronn/Germany.
Overall, the production area will be expanded from 4,000 to 5,400 m². This will enable the process flows to be optimized. The office space will be increased to 1,000 m². An additional level of the building will provide modern workplaces for administration and sales.
In the future, TCC will operate its production facility in Neubulach in a climate-neutral manner. The new production facility will meet the highest requirements for energy efficiency and climate protection. Heating is provided by process heat recovery and geothermal energy. In addition, the company produces green electricity through its own solar panels.
Trützschler intends to recruit the additional employees required within a short timeframe by hiring new staff and offering apprenticeships at site. TCC employs more than 130 people in Germany, with a further 220 people employed worldwide at locations in Brazil, China, India, Mexico, Turkey and the USA. The Trützschler Group is also investing in India to build a new site with over 100,000 m² for the Spinning, Card Clothing and Nonwovens business units.
