Lindner completes move to new offices and production plant
Lindner completed the move to the new offices and 14,000 square meter production area in July 2022. Demand for Lindner products necessitated the expansion of the factory and the team. The motto “make the most of waste” in the new site has not changed.
Recycling has been booming for many years. A growing awareness of energy costs and the scarcity of resources and raw materials has increasingly highlighted the importance of the circular economy. In 2019, due to the increased demand for efficient recycling solutions, the decision was made to build a new Lindner plant.
Already in the initial planning phase, it was clear that the new office building and the new production site had to be built in a comprehensive and sustainable manner in accordance with future requirements. In terms of production, the focus was on the further expansion of automation and robotics, the associated quality assurance, the optimization of assembly processes and the expansion of manufacturing capacities of the company.
“The crisis has further reassured us that this is the right way. The disrupted supply chains have also shown how important it is for us to manufacture as many components as possible in our own production. is that by investing in our own manufacturing capabilities, robotics, automation and flow production, we can ensure the quality of our products and reliable delivery times in the future,” says Manuel Lindner, CEO and owner.
“We want our new headquarters to be fully equipped for future needs and well positioned to maintain high quality standards and meet the growing demand for our machinery. The production area of the new factory has doubled, which means that we are ideally equipped to cope with the increased capacity,” says Michael Lackner, Managing Director of Lindner. “But it is equally important to us to provide our employees with a modern workplace. By using automation and robotics, we can make work more comfortable. Heavy physical labor, such as assembling machinery, is no longer necessary. Instead, the task is We focus on the proper functioning of the robots. We are also significantly expanding our team, which means that we are currently hiring 100 new employees.
The new production area is not the only highlight; the three-storey office complex also impresses with its modern construction and facilities. Great importance was placed on the use of environmentally friendly building materials and sustainability during the construction of the new recycling house. That is why a photovoltaic system supplies the entire company with clean electricity from renewable sources. In keeping with the idea of an energy self-sufficient site, heating and cooling are also provided by groundwater and heat pumps. Local glued laminated timber, a renewable raw material, was used in the construction of the hall itself. And when designing the employee parking lot, it was important to seal off as little ground as possible, so special recycled plastic grass bricks made by a Lindner customer were used for the paving.
