In January 2019, ISOLITE GmbH will open its new factory in the Dutch city of Almere. In the approximately 3,000 qm production area, the focus will be on creating prototypes and on automated high-volume projects. In addition, the areas of both Engineering and Design will be located in the new factory. In the next three years, ISOLITE will invest five million Euros into the new location and create approximately 80 new jobs by the middle of 2020.
Following the successful expansion of its international presence in recent years, ISOLITE is particularly happy about its strategically important position within Europe. As a result of its central connection to Rotterdam harbour, the new location is an important logistics hub for ISOLITE and its logistics full service offers.
“In Almere, we will concentrate specifically on insulating cast housing for exhaust turbo chargers and cast components. Through newly developed automation technologies, in the future we will be in the position to produce up to five million pieces each year in the new factory. We are always in close contact with our customers during the process” said Christian Eck, managing director of ISOLITE GmbH.
The strategic orientation towards insulation of cast housing for exhaust turbo chargers will be added to through a number of highly automated manufacturing processes. Alongside laser welding, the pressing in of bushings will also be an ongoing element of production.
“The many years of collaborative co-operation with our customers in the Netherlands and the ever-growing demand for our progressive high-temperature insulation systems speak for ISOLITE, for our customer orientation and for our promises of quality. It is evident who the market leader is in the area of high-temperature insulation and sealing systems” expands Hiroyuki Yamanaka, managing director of ISOLITE GmbH, and, together with Christian Eck, responsible for the successful realisation of the new location.
In opening the highly automated and modern factory in Almere, ISOLITE once again proves to be a trailblazer in the insulation market. And it’s all as according to the motto:
Be a step ahead with ISOLITE.
