Schunk Group has opened a new customer centre in Bad Goisern, Austria, in an inauguration ceremony attended by company management, the board of directors and the Schunk workforce, as well as representatives from local politics, business and media. The new centre is the result of a reported €4 million investment, and replaces a former site which was active from 1947.

Bad Goisern is home to the group’s Automotive Business Unit headquarters, part of Schunk Carbon Technology. At the opening ceremony, Dr Klaus Löcker, Managing Director of Schunk Carbon Technology, stated, “Bad Goisern is becoming increasingly important on the world stage thanks to the inauguration of the headquarters of the Automotive Business Unit. This has allowed us to enhance both the attractiveness of Schunk Carbon Technology as an employer as well as the attractiveness of Bad Goisern as a business location situated in the heart of the Salzkammergut region.”

“The investment emphasises Bad Goisern’s importance as a centre for the international automotive business of our Carbon Technology Division,” added Dr Arno Roth, Schunk Group CEO.

Schunk Carbon Technology Austria reports that it is serving an increasing number of major automotive manufacturers as end customers through close development partnerships, technological exchanges and global collaborations. The new customer centre provides event space in which to host customers, as well as a 220-seat cafeteria.

The customer centre will also accommodate the company’s Management and Controlling, Sales, HR and IT Departments, and is reportedly equipped with the latest sustainable in-house technology.
