Official inauguration ceremony with the guests of honour
Vista of the new production hall
Due to the necessity to meet the challenges of the present and future growth, another building project has been finished which provides additional production capacities. The official inauguration ceremony took place on October 28, 2014 in the presence of representatives of the board of directors, supervisory board, works council and guests of honour from politics and economy.
Ludwig Eisenreich, mayor of Berching, proudly reflected in this speech all the company's building projects that have been completed in the past with unfailing regularity. Since 1992, numerous building permissions (see box) for the expansion of office and production capacities at Berching have been issued: "Berching needs visionaries like the Huber family". The municipality would be glad to provide the infrastructure required for such exemplary entrepreneurship, he said.
Willibald Gailler, head of the district authority, and state secretary Albert Füracker expressed their thanks for HUBER's loyalty to the location Berching, the company's innovativeness and local social engagement. The new production hall received a blessing from the Berching parish priest Arthur Wechsler.
Now as this new hall has been completed the company's production capacities have grown by another 2,200 m² and 40 additional work places.
This latest project has been the logical consequence of the company's previous building measures.
Vice CEO Dr. Oliver Rong, responsible for engineering & production, added that the new hall has been planned and built with a special focus on improving working conditions and energy efficiency. The hall has therefore a modern concrete floor which allows for low-vibration transports with forklifts and lifting trucks. Furthermore, the hall is equipped with modern LED lamps for better illumination and significantly reduced energy consumption.
With this new production hall HUBER is able to further manufacture competitive wastewater products at the location Berching and has laid the foundations for the company's continued success.
