Profine Group has significantly expanded its production facilities in Pirmasens, Germany for the continued growth of the KÖMMERLING brand in key markets, including the UK.
The international manufacturer of PVCu profiles for windows and doors, has recently purchased a 750,000 square foot site from the city administration in Pirmasens to support future growth. The area is located on the opposite side of the federal road B10, in the immediate vicinity of the existing profine factory premises, which already boasts 2.6million square feet of space.
From summer 2018, profine plans to develop the new production site, as part of a long-term growth strategy, which will also realise an increase in the workforce from the current level of 1,200, making it one of the largest employers in the area. According to the owner and CEO of profine Group, Dr. Peter Mrosik, they want to invest a two-digit €multi-million amount by 2022.
Stefan Seidel, managing director of KÖMMERLING and profine UK, commented: ‘This investment in Germany will not only support their local geographical market, but also our activities in the UK. We have a firm strategic plan in place for the UK, which is both exciting and dynamic and I look forward to sharing it with our profile partners in due course.
He continued: ’With the launch of System 76 in the casement, flush sash and fully reversible due at the end of quarter 1, 2018 our position as the leading PVCu systems innovator will be further realised.’
