Expansions of the Saarbrücken site
5000 m2 extra space
We are expanding our site in Saarbrücken by adding another facility. The 5000m2 site is primarily for new offices, as well as more storage areas. So this also extends the production sites of the meter boxes and meter connection columns.
The aim of expanding the site with our huge surge in growth and creation of more jobs is primarily to create a work environment that is not only modern, but also promotes innovation.
We announced to increase our sales target by 24 million euros and our range currently includes 880 standard products. Every year we develop over 80 new products and present them at trade fairs, such as Light + Building, eltefa.
f-tronic’s products reach tradesmen through three-level distribution. So 80% of field sales activities are devoted to giving electricians on-site advice. A small proportion of sales are accounted for by high quality contract production. This has included, since the start of last year, the construction and production of plastic medical technical products. Our company has over 490 injection-molding tools, the biggest of which has 1,250 tonnes clamping force. We invest about 10% of our revenues annually in machines, tools, software and infrastructure.
