Press releases () Oerlikon Balzers begins production in Bielefeld
Balzers, Liechtenstein, 13 April 2017 – Oerlikon Balzers, the coating specialists from Liechtenstein, have commissioned their new Customer Centre for the North Germany region in Bielefeld, after relocating from the previous site in Spenge.
The new site in Bielefeld will allow Oerlikon Balzers to combine the services offered at their existing sites in Spenge, Herford and Hildesheim. “In the last few days we have transferred all coating systems and equipment from Spenge to Bielefeld. The relocation went well, and we have already restarted production. All staff from Spenge will continue to be employed at Bielefeld, and we are all looking forward to the new premises”, says Hendrik Alfter, CEO of Oerlikon Balzers Germany. The second stage will see the site at Herford integrated into the new Customer Centre by the end of summer 2017. The full production capacity of the site at Bielefeld will be reached in early 2018 after the site at Hildesheim is relocated. The aim of the new Customer Centre is for Oerlikon Balzers to expand its range of individualized solutions and to optimize processes and internal workflows so that it can respond to customers’ wishes with even greater flexibility.
