The Bitzer Group is expanding its facilities in Schkeuditz, Germany, constructing new buildings for production, warehousing and dispatch. In addition, the company is creating a new training workshop where three instructors will be able to train up to 32 apprentices.
Alongside construction of the new buildings, the main factory in Schkeuditz is being renovated to expand production and office space. Estimated at approximately $23 million, construction should be completed by the end of 2016. As a center of expertise for reciprocating compressors, the location plays a key role in the full conversion of production to the Ecoline series.
