Teknos, the global manufacturer of coating systems, is reinforcing its presence in Germany. A new plant is to be built in Steinau an der Straße that will become a benchmark in innovation, technology, sustainability and growth for the industry and for Teknos in Europe.
“Germany is an important market for the global Teknos Group”, explains owner and CEO Paula Salastie. “The construction of a new, modern production and work site gives us all the opportunities for creating a sustainable future and fuels our innovation.”
Together with employees, customers and suppliers, Teknos can further develop its portfolio, work more efficiently and respond even faster and with greater flexibility to market needs. “Demand is changing, issues such as sustainability are becoming more and more important”, adds Thomas Palm, Managing Director of Teknos Germany. “In the planned new building, we can systematically expand our competencies and optimize production capabilities in the most sustainable and efficient way possible.”
The project is a strategic decision for growth in the coming decades. “This will allow us to offer new and exciting opportunities for the coming generations as an employer”, says Salastie. “With the new site located in central Germany, we hope to attract even more talents to join Teknos which further strengthens our company.”
Now that the purchase agreement for the plot has been finalized, the planning and construction phase can begin. At this time, production is expected to start within the next three years.
Teknos Germany currently has three locations in Alzenau, Brüggen and Fulda, and employs approximately 200 people.
