ALD completes expansion of Hanau facility
ALD has completed the third phase of expansion at its Hanau facility (ALD Vacuum Technologies GmbH)

ALD Vacuum Technologies GmbH, a division of AMG Advanced Metallurgical Group N.V., has completed the expansion of its headquarters in Hanau, Germany. The new building has added 5,000 m2 of floor space, creating room for a hundred additional ALD employees. 

Located in the Fraunhofer Science Park in the Hanau-Wolfgang district of Germany, the third construction phase comprised a 2,500 m² four-story office building with a further 2,500 m² hall. Reportedly identical to the large assembly hall from the first construction phase, the expansion offers sufficient hall volume and all necessary energy and media connections including the associated pits. 

According to ALD, the administration of the globally active ALD Heat Treatment Services has also moved into its new offices at the expanded Hanau facility. It is expected that in the new hall, various systems will be installed in the test centre, which will be used both for the further technological development of processes and for the design of custom processes to meet customer requirements

“The continuing good business development was accompanied by a parallel increase in the number of employees and led to increasing space requirements in 2018,” stated Guido Löber, CEO of ALD Vacuum Technologies GmbH. “Recently, we have had to move closer together and even create temporary solutions in order to find a place for all our employees. We are therefore very pleased that we can now move into the new building.”

Michael Protzmann, Technical Managing Director of ALD Vacuum Technologies GmbH, commented, “We feel very comfortable here in Hanau Wolfgang and can optimally organise our processes here and thus ensure our workforce a future-proof and modern location in a highly technical environment.”

Protzmann added, “Here, our newly established “Industry 4.0″ department and our research and development departments for metallurgy and heat treatment will work on pioneering products such as Modultherm 3.0, which will increase the benefits for our customers.”

Powder Metallurgy: The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
